We’re honored to announce that Sophos has won three distinguished categories in CRN’s 2016 Annual Report Card (ARC).
Following on from last year’s success, we were named overall winners in both the Network Security category and the Data Security category, as well as receiving the highly regarded Product Innovation award in the Endpoint Security category.
CRN’s study recognizes those technology vendors most highly praised by their solution provider partners, and for over three decades has been a benchmark for quality within the IT channel.
We’re extremely proud that Sophos has won the award for best IT vendor in all three security categories in CRN’s Annual Report Card (ARC). It was an honor to win more categories than any other vendor recognized this year.
For the second year running, we’ve been recognized as the winners of two categories – Client Security Software and Network Security Appliances – and this year the channel also chose us as the overall winner for Network Security Software.
The ARC summarizes results from a comprehensive survey of solution provider satisfaction with hardware, services and software vendors.
The first-ever CRN Channel Madness Tournament of Chiefs started with 32 of the industry’s most influential channel chiefs, a field that included executives from tech giants like IBM, Verizon, VMware, Cisco, Citrix, HP and Palo Alto.
It ended with one – Mike Valentine, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales at Sophos, who was crowned champion after besting Verizon’s Adam Famularo in the finals.
Each victory through five rounds of voting demonstrated the quality of the relationships and engagement we’ve built with partners, employees and other members of our community.
We were honored once again to receive the Channel Company’s CRN Award for Security Vendor of the Year.
Winning the Security Vendor of the Year award from CRN for the second year running is proof of what our partners have known for some years – that Sophos not only has world class products and support but also the ability to add real value to the partner community.
Our channel program has been designed to be easy and rewarding for partners. And we continue to lead the way in how we bring our products to market.
