Barracuda, the company that aims to protect customers, data and applications from today’s advanced threats by providing the most comprehensive and easy-to-use IT security platform, have now announced their award winners at their EMEA partner awards evening, with Softcat being awarded UK&I Regional Partner of the Year.

The awards ceremony, otherwise known as Discover19, was held in Spain this year, as Softcat headed to Marbella to receive their award. In recognition of the role that partners will play in helping Barracuda, they rewarded partners who have surpassed business expectations and shown meticulous dedication throughout the year.

Matthew Jones, Sales Director at Softcat, commented, “We are thrilled to have received this award from Barracuda. It demonstrates how our relationship is going from strength to strength and I very much look forward to our joint success in the future."

Jessica Kingham, Channel Manager at Barracuda, commented, ‘’Our annual awards aim to celebrate all that is great about our EMEA channel, and to recognise our partners’ dedication and enthusiasm. The standard of nominations was very high this year, making our job of deciding the winners even harder. Softcat was a front runner for being awarded UKI Partner of the year, simply due to the phenomenal growth rate throughout FY19 where they over-doubled their new business with Barracuda. We have a fantastic relationship and significant commitment from the Specialist Teams at Softcat, who spotted the security opportunity early and they continue to go above and beyond to support Barracuda with our leading Email, Backup and Public Cloud Solutions. I would personally to like to share my heartfelt congratulations - thank you for all your hard work over the past year. It has been heart-warming to see the results of yet another year of commitment shown to the Barracuda portfolio.’’
