The Partner awards recognise small, mid-sized and enterprise providers for delivering innovation and value to customers across Australia.
Working with Australian partners is not part of our strategy, it is our strategy. Sophos’ mission is to be the best in the world at delivering innovative, simple and highly effective cybersecurity solutions to IT professionals and the channel that serves them.
In fact, we are the only technology company that features the channel in its mission statement — demonstrating our commitment to the success of the partner community. Thanks to our work with the channel, we have tremendous global reach for our products, and can provide incredible local support for end-users. Our team in Australia work to empower our partner community, to motivate them, and to drive the best results alongside them. 2018 has been an amazing year for us so far, adding more than 1,000 Sophos certified individuals to the Sophos family — demonstrating the channel’s commitment to working with us.
Secondly, we now have more than 200 partners in Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ) as part of our MSP Connect Flex program — showing that new routes to market are critical. And finally, we continue to grow. We now have 17,000 customers in A/NZ — proving that hard work and partnership pays off.
We are incredibly fortunate to have such a dedicated and successful partner base, especially across A/NZ, which is why we are a proud sponsor of the Partner Value category at the ARN Innovation Awards in 2018.
It is the partner community that continuously paves the way to success for Sophos. They are at the coalface with customers hand in hand with us, delivering innovation and value, each and every day. There is one theme that encapsulates the ARN Innovation Awards and that is partnership — how the industry empowers it, achieves it and celebrates it. It gave me and the wider Sophos team great pleasure to celebrate the success of partners, individuals and fellow vendors across Australia.
Thank you to all our partners and congratulations to all the winners of the Partner Value awards — most of which Sophos is lucky to work with.
