Data security leader Sophos has presented Softcat with its prestigious 'Partner of the Year UK & Ireland' award, following a record-breaking year of continued sales growth. The award ceremony was held in Cannes, where Sophos hosted its sales kick-off meeting at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrés de Cannes.
Softcat chief executive, Martin Hellawell, expressed his delight at winning the award: "We have enjoyed another year of tremendous success with Sophos products, which have become even more relevant to our commercial and public sector customers. We have continued to strengthen our partnership and work strategically with Sophos, and much credit is due to the Sophos account team for the excellent level of support they provide to our account managers. I also want to congratulate all of the Softcat team for their hard work that has resulted in this award. This achievement demonstrates that the Softcat and Sophos relationship continues to be an effective and rewarding one."
Sophos selected Softcat as its Partner of the Year on the strength of its sales achievements across the Sophos portfolio, including Unified Threat Management solutions, managed security and cloud services, and the new Sophos Security Heartbeat products that provide synchronization between firewalls and endpoints.
Jonathan Bartholomew, Channel Director UKI of Sophos, said: "We're delighted that Softcat have once again been awarded Sophos Partner of the Year. Their performance in FY16 represents an outstanding achievement, with growth across every metric, including cross sell, net new and customer renewal rates. Aside from this fantastic performance, it has been an absolute pleasure, as always, working with the entire team at Softcat this year. I would like to personally thank them for their continued support of Sophos and for being such a fantastic company to work with. Congratulations on receiving the Partner of the Year 2016 award."
This is the second time Softcat has won this award; the first was in 2014. It follows an unbroken run of Sophos award wins over the past few years, including 'Mid-market Partner of the Year' in 2015, 'Partner of the Year UK & Ireland' and 'Mid-market Partner of the Year' in 2014, 'Mid-market Partner of the Year' award in 2013, and 'EMEA Partner of the Year' award and 'Corporate Reseller of the Year' award in 2012
