The ranking was based on a survey by the publisher Vogel IT-Medien – known for industry magazines such as “IT-Business” and “Cloudcomputing Insider”. More than 20,000 readers participated. They were able to evaluate providers and cloud suppliers in ten different categories. T-Systems International GmbH (listed as “T-Systems”) took the top spot in the “Managed Security Provider” category ahead of Atos and NTT. Andreas Brasching, Head of Innovation & Incubation in Offering Management at Deutsche Telekom Security, accepted the award on behalf of the company. With platinum for Telekom Deutschland GmbH as best “Cloud Service Provider”, a second trophy also went to Bonn.

Very young, but already awarded

For Andreas Brasching, the event was complete success: "Exciting presentations, good conversations and a lot to learn - that's how I experienced the event. It was interesting to see what challenges other service providers are facing and how Microsoft and AWS envision the partnership of the future." For him, however, the victory as best "Managed Security Provider" was the perfect end to the evening. "We are really proud to have won this award! A great milestone for Deutsche Telekom Security, which is still a relatively new company."

A focus on cloud and security

The award ceremony marked the end of the Service Provider Summit in Frankfurt. Around 100 top managers from the industry met at the event. The focus of the networking event, which this year was held under the motto "The Next Level of Service Providing", was: How can the cloud and managed services industry position itself sustainably and securely? And how can providers accompany their customers into the agile future of IT and meaningfully integrate hyperscalers? Keynote speeches on the subject of edge computing, cloud native and kubernetes as well as new threat scenarios for IT security gave the participants some interesting insights into the new requirements of the industry. 

Networking at a distance

Think tanks, roundtables and the format "Under Pressure - the crisis as an opportunity" provided space for exchanging personal experiences and opinions. During the panel discussion, Klaus Bürg and Thorsten Herrmann, managing directors of AWS and Microsoft, discussed the new role of hyperscalers in cloud partnerships. At the accompanying exhibition, 18 companies invited visitors to one-on-one meetings for some direct networking. Despite the limited contact possibilities due to the coronavirus pandemic, the participants in the Villa Kennedy were able to enjoy a lively exchange thanks to a professional hygiene concept.
