Certifications Matter

TechBento joined the Amazon Partner Network the year it became introduced. Back then Amazon had a few dedicated individuals and virtually no infrastructure for members, but that changed quickly. Within a year AWS posed strict certification and examination requirements and the term “Amazon Certified” became a buzzword. Companies literally started hiring people that had these certifications just so they could get an opportunity to join the Amazon Partner Network.

TechBento is a certified Amazon Web Services Consulting Partner.  APN Consulting Partners are professional services firms that help customers design, architect, build, migrate, and manage their workloads and applications on AWS. Consulting Partners include System Integrators, Strategic Consultancies, Agencies, Managed Service Providers, and Value-Added Resellers.

Our solutions range from hybrid clouds to our CloudBento business unit that delivers reliable and scalable infrastructure.  We’ve given companies dependent on legacy applications choice to use the cloud while maintaining independence and control over their systems.

TechBento’s AWS Consulting Partner status is part of our strategy to showcase our capabilities and serve our customers.  Although this certification may be the most important, it is also part of a series of relationships which extend to Apple’s Consulting Network, Microsoft’s Cloud Partner Program, Google’s G-Suite Partner Network, Parallels Partner Network, and several others. In each case we proved our worth by demonstrating practical experience, successfully passing certification examinations, and paying dues that together allow us to have access to resources with each of these organizations.

Cybersecurity means protecting electronic devices and electronically stored information. Cybersecurity is a component of information security and addresses protection and restoration of information technology within an organization. All organizations are different and thus require different levels or protections. Likelihood is the chance that a threat will affect a business and serves as a guide in determining what protections should be put into place.


Strategic thinking is at the heart of information security and each organization needs to meet demands of adequate security. Any company, big or small, should be capable of doing an inventory of all information technology assets and analyzing risks. For small organizations this can be as simple as understanding each asset’s confidentiality, integrity, and availability needs; rating it’s importance to the business and acceptable recovery points and time windows; and allocating resources for methodical solutions to the most important parts.
