About Cloud Security Solutions

Mike started Cloud Security Solutions (CSS) in 2012 to help Global 500 customers identify Innovative Start Up companies that deliver strong ROI. CSS recognizes that Innovative Start Ups need introductions to C-Level executives at Global 500 enterprises. Therefore CSS qualifies interest through Monthly/Quarterly Research Updates.

CSS “Brokers” the qualified introduction between the Innovation Start Up and the Global 500. There’s more to CSS than the introduction. We help manage the relationship through the pre-sales engagement and post-sales deployment.

CSS correlates trends per Innovation discussions with our Customers CIO’s, CTO’s, CISO’s that are driving Innovation adoption. We have Customers that are leading the charge to the Cloud and those that are following.

CSS has built many C-level relationships over the past 31 years in Enterprise Sales and seeks to deliver value with our research and recommendations similar to an Accenture Partner.

CSS business value is quite similar to the Accenture Alliance Model. The Start Up pays for the help with introductions, advice, and guidance. Founder, Michael Schramm used Accenture at many previous stops and was happy to pay for the value.

CSS aims to provide advice to our Global 1000 Customers on Innovation Partners year over year as a consistent Partner and Trusted Advisor.

CSS has been with Partners like Agari since 2012. Agari has grown from a few customers and scarce funding to a category winner with many major customers, market leadership, strong funding and wonderful stories of deployed impact and value. Many Financial, EComm, Healthcare and Shipping CISO’s have looked good per their investment in Agari. Agari has delivered cost reduction, reduced risk and increased revenue, all measureable which is a win for the Customer, Vendor and Partner….true Trifecta…CSS is an extension of the Agari Team and works closely with the Sales and the Customer Success Team to deliver value. Other best in category Partners include winners like Tanium, Netskope, Exabeam, Apigee, AppDynamics, etc.
