Simple Helix & LiftOff Partner to Provide Customers with GCC High Licenses & Support

Simple Helix is excited to announce that it has partnered with Maryland based LiftOff to provide complete Microsoft Office 365 GCC High packages to its government contractor customer base in North Alabama and beyond. LiftOff is one of only 8 Microsoft AOS-G partners authorized to sell Office 365 GCC High licenses in quantities under 500. Huntsville based Simple Helix is a full service, IT Solutions Provider and Microsoft Gold partner that services customers across all industry verticals including the vast contractor base in North Alabama. Simple Helix and LiftOff will partner to provide full, turnkey solutions to the vast government contractor community in Huntsville and the surrounding area. LiftOff brings extensive knowledge and experience around Office 365 GCC High licensing options and will provide licenses for contractor customers requiring 1-500 users. Simple Helix’ managed services organization operates out of its Tier III colocation data center in Huntsville, AL. It provides implementation services for customers as well as options for ongoing support via flexible managed services.

The DoD’s Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is driving the need for government contractors to update their approach to cybersecurity. Microsoft’s Office 365 GCC High solution is well suited to help government contractors meet the CMMC requirements going forward as the DoD rolls the program out.

Simple Helix CEO Tracy Collins commented, “Simple Helix is very focused on providing flexible solutions to contractor customers of all sizes in a cost effective and timely manner. Microsoft has a very limited distribution model for Office 365 GCC licenses at a time where a growing number of contractors are migrating to it every day. By partnering with LiftOff, we can provide customers with everything they need including the licenses, flexible implementation offerings for contractors of all sizes and ongoing support of the customers environment. Ron and his team at LiftOff are very experienced and together we will help provide customers the solutions they need, when they need them in a cost-effective manner.”

LiftOff Founder and President Ron Braatz commented “we have built our business around Microsoft’s solutions and this partnership with Simple Helix is a perfect fit to serve the large base of contractors in Huntsville who need complete solutions on their journey to CMMC compliance. The experience and depth of capabilities between Simple Helix and LiftOff is unrivaled.”

Commenting further Collins stated, “Every day we work with more contractors who are embarking on their CMMC compliance journey. Many are frustrated because the options they have been presented are outside their budget and inflexible. We help them every day by meeting with them to understand their needs and their goals and tailoring solutions that fit their business and their budget. Office 365 GCC High is a great option and piece of the puzzle, but until now we have had to tell customers that they would have to go source their licenses from one of Microsoft’s limited set of approved partners. That story changes today. We now have a relationship with a very experienced Microsoft partner whose values mirror our own. Our portfolio of solutions to help customers meet the requirements of CMMC is the broadest in the region. Our Tier III colocation data center, robust cloud solutions, Security Operations Center/Network Operations Center, hosted LogRhythm SIEM solution and VEEAM backup solution all help customers meet the CMMC requirement without having to invest significant capital in infrastructure.”
