Hazlet, NJ, Monmouth County – April 2019 The Connection, Inc., “Connecting you to the World”, today announced it has become a Microsoft Authorized Education Partner (AEP), demonstrating its ability to meet Microsoft academic customers’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment. To earn a Microsoft AEP authorization, partners must complete a test to prove their level of academic licensing and market expertise.

The AEP program is designed to train participating resellers on Microsoft’s Academic licensing, authorize them to purchase and resell Microsoft Academic licenses, and demonstrate to potential customers that they are approved and knowledgeable academic partners.

The Connection has been providing expert IT support and solutions for keeping small to medium-sized

businesses connected to the world since 1992. Offering services such as Proactive Technology

Management, Network Administration, Technology Consulting, Support Services, Security Services and

Employee training.

“This Microsoft AEP authorization shows our commitment and specialism in the academic IT marketplace and demonstrates our knowledge of Microsoft and its academic products,” said George Gremminger, President of The Connection, Inc. “We hope to accelerate our academic customers’ successes by serving as technology advisors for their IT requirements.”

“By becoming AEPs, partners show themselves to be committed and trained in providing discounted Microsoft academic products to the education market,” said Anthony Salcito, Vice President of Education for Microsoft Corp.’s Worldwide Public Sector. “This authorization, along with our other education partner initiatives, gives our partners recognition of their areas of expertise and our academic customers the confidence that they are buying from academic IT specialists.”

The Microsoft AEP Program is designed to authorize and equip organizations that deliver academic products and services through the Microsoft platform with the training, resources and support they need to provide their customers with superior experiences and outcomes.

After January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or support for PCs running Windows 7. If your business is still using Windows 7, its time to start preparing for its end of life.

  • Identify machines that need to be upgraded or replaced
  • Develop a timeline to assist you in budgeting for upgrades and replacements
  • Implement security controls to separate critical systems from Windows 7 machines that cannot be upgraded or removed
