Gary Sugai Sr. Director of IT Operations at TrueBlue Inc.
"[Expera is] one of the most proactive partners that we had for the Worldwide Optimization (IO) strategy team at Microsoft. Not only has [the Expera consultant] been forthcoming with valuable suggestions and feedback, he has taken the Infrastructure Optimization (IO) framework and developed credible consulting offerings around them, leading to a mutually beneficial relationship for both Expera and Microsoft."

De Pasque praises Expera for providing "an excellent document outlining where we are, where we want to be, and how to get there.

Anthony de Pasque Director of Infrastructure at Tata Communication Ltd
TrueBlue Inc. was recommended to Expera through Microsoft, and "were very pleased." The consultant "helped us do a self-assessment of our Enterprise security using the Core Infrastructure Optimization framework, [which] covered maturity assessments in End Point Protection, Edge Protection, Messaging Security, Collaboration Security, and Information Protection within our enterprise. [The Expera consultant] also provided an IT Security roadmap showing how we might optimize our security infrastructure in phases. He was very easy to work with, knew his stuff, and didn't try to push any particular products or services. He provided questionnaires for us to fill out, conducted numerous interviews, and THEN he produced quality results VERY quickly thereafter. He never let the project lag."
Bob Fitton IT Security Architect at TrueBlue Inc.
"As a consulting partner, [Expera] consistently delivers great results and demonstrates an expertise and understanding of both business and technical drivers .

[They] easily develop a rapport with people, communicating at the right level for the right audience with a personal flair that is too often missing in technology services."

[He] was flexible in working with the different operational teams and effective in communication to both the technical and management teams in explaining the results of the assessment. The roadmap offered provided a strong foundation for the management of our security programs."

Jay Gore Chief Technology Officer at Microsoft
"It was a pleasure working with [Expera CEO] Krishnan on multiple occasions. He is a very organized individual who can change hats from CEO to Project Manager in the blink of an eye. ￼Krishnan has a very deep technical understanding of Microsoft technologies and can explain them at all levels. Krishnan is also an expert at designing and implementing these technologies. I look forward to working with Krishnan in the future."

Dana Cummins Asset Management Senior Analyst at MultiCare Health System
"[The Expera consultant] is one of those unusual people combining high intelligence, encyclopaedic product knowledge, and great interpersonal skills. I've encountered one or two other people with that combination, and like them, [the consultant] brings those skills and abilities to bear in providing business solutions that have greater immediate and measurable results than just a real smart guy with great skill set is able to achieve. This is a strongly worded endorsement, of a type I've written only once before. But he's only the second guy I've ever met that deserves it."
