Security vendor Sophos has handed out partner awards to its best-performing Australia and New Zealand channel partners..
The awards were presented at the 2019 Sophos Discover conference in Sydney on Friday, 23 August.
Sydney-based Exigo Tech and sister company HD IT were named Partner of the Year, while Brisbane-based Surebridge scored the Managed Service Provider of the Year award. The Missing Link was awarded New Partner of the Year, and Bluechip Infotech was named Distributor of the Year.
Sophos also handed out individual awards, with Datacom’s Karl Yuan winning Salesperson of the Year, while Jimmy Harden of Brisbane-based Aryon took home Sales Engineer of the Year.
“Congratulations to all our partners for their success over the last year,” Sophos ANZ channel director Jon Fox said.
“At Sophos, we are lucky to work with such dedicated and tenacious partner organisations across Australia and New Zealand.”
New Zealand-based partners also received their own awards, with SSS winning Partner of the Year, IT Partners winning MSP of the Year and Exeed winning Distributor of the Year.
“Our partner network is filled with partners that we trust and depend on, which is important given Sophos is a 100 percent channel driven business, Fox said.
“This means we rely on the success of our partners and do everything we can to ensure we’re adequately supporting them, to help them deliver the best outcomes possible to customers. That’s why we have these awards every year—to celebrate our partners’ successes.”
