CSP Licensing

Your partner in value-for-money, security-driven Microsoft CSP licensing strategies

Buying Microsoft licenses through Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) via a Microsoft Partner is now the most affordable option for organisations of up to 2400 seats.
The right Microsoft Partner should deliver far more than just reduced license costs, however. The real value lies in the creation of a license strategy that supports your unique cloud journey and accelerates the fulfilment of your current and future needs.

Your needs

Microsoft licensing is a large investment that needs to pay dividends over the short and long term. Getting the right CSP licensing means navigating countless options to find the optimal fit for your current and future security, compliance and business needs.  

That requires a very clear understanding of what those needs are, and how they might evolve as your cloud journey progresses.  

With limited options for direct procurement, and reduced flexibility on license terms, you need the right Microsoft Partner to facilitate this analysis, decision-making and procurement process.  

Our solution​

For most businesses, the best way to maximise ROI from Microsoft is to make the most of the advanced security features available. For that reason, we prefer to base our license recommendations on a security assessment. This enables us to fully understand your environment and pinpoint your specific gaps, risks and opportunities.

From there, we can design an adoption roadmap that ensures your cloud security matures over time, addresses any shortfalls, and keeps pace with the evolving threat landscape. We then use this roadmap to formulate license strategy that provides maximum value through optimally-timed access to the features and functionality you need.

From Our Clients

The Cloud Essentials’ team have shown they are a partner, not just a supplier. The company we acquired advised that the IT integration project was the most successful part of their conversion to join us, which is a reflection on everyone involved. Thank you!

Head of Infrastructure

Job well done! I appreciate your knowledge, expertise, and teamwork/engagement which contributed to a successful migration/cutover.


"Cloud Essentials performed a mail migration for our Institute of Astronomy, from a legacy Microsoft Exchange server to the University Microsoft 365 Tenancy. Cloud Essentials were extremely professional from start to finish. They understood our Higher Education context. They were very flexible when setting the timeline when we had some challenges in our availability to support the work. Their staff were helpful and friendly. They demonstrated great expertise and guided us throughout the process. The migration itself was smooth and fast. Great service by a great team! I would recommend and use their services again."

Higher Education Institution

Project Manager

“This has been very refreshing. And Cloud Essentials have been not just an implementer, but a trusted partner. They’ve effectively become our ‘SharePoint arm’ within the company. They haven’t taken a cookie-cutter approach with something from another environment, but have genuinely wanted to find the best way to help us.”

"Cloud Essentials carried out a very professional service. They stayed cool, calm and collected. I’m sure it won’t be the last time we work with Cloud Essentials."

It is no small achievement to reduce a corporate enterprise data footprint this significantly in a responsible, well planned and executed manner.

Pierre Blignaut

“Cloud Essentials understand the importance of carrying out a project the right way, no matter the size of it. They don’t take any short cuts.”

Tenant Migration client

“This was a smooth migration with very little impact on the business during the changeover, we would definitely use Cloud Essentials and the Binary Tree toolset again if we need to do another migration!”
