Sophos has awarded the top-performing partners across ASEAN, recognising a year of strong growth across the channel.
Unveiled during the Sophos Partner Conference in Bangkok, the awards recognise the leading security specialists in the region, acknowledging growth during the past financial year.
“We would like to congratulate our winning partners and extend our gratitude to all our partners for their continuous support and commitment over the last year,” said Sumit Bansal, managing director of ASEAN and Korea at Sophos.
Key ASEAN winners this year include Centrics Networks and PT Virtus Technology, who took home the honours across Partner of the Year and Distributor of the Year categories.
Meanwhile, Cebu A.I. Logic was recognised as the Newcomer of the Year, while George Leal (Microgenesis) was recognised as Partner SE of the Year.
Rounding off the list of winners across the wider region were Microware, T-Tech System Corporation, ITZone LLC and Galaxy Lee (Chunghwa Telecom) across the Greater China market.
Meanwhile, Rise Tech Software, Redington, DigitalTrack Solutions and Chathuranga Jayaweera (Avian Technologies) claimed honours in India.
“Sophos is a 100 per cent channel driven business, and here in ASEAN we are fortunate to have such a dedicated and successful partner base,” Bansal added.
“We are pleased to have this opportunity to express our gratitude to our partners, and to once again take the time to help them be as effective as possible.”
Honoured during the vendor’s channel-focused event - under the theme of ‘See the Future’ - partners have also debated new use cases around emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and deep learning, in the context of endpoint security.
The annual event is designed to encourage and support partners by bringing together the best of Sophos’ local and international talent, designed to deepen cyber security knowledge and expertise.
