Softcat has won Sophos’ UK & Ireland Mid-Market Partner of the Year award at the data security provider’s annual partner conference in Rome. Sophos’ Regional Vice President UKI James Vyvyan presented the award to Softcat’s alliances director James Baker.

Since it became Sophos’ UK Partner of the Year last year, Softcat has continued to demonstrate its commitment through continued sales growth – last financial year growing Sophos business by 26%.

“We invest continually in all our partnerships, but we are especially delighted to win this award from Sophos as such a long standing partner who has grown alongside us – it’s important to us that we continue to deliver year after year, and this award indicates we’re keeping on course. I’d like to thank Sophos for their on-going investment in our staff, and for all their time spent on site providing assistance and technical resource,” said James Baker.

“The significant business growth this year can be partly attributed to our on-going training of staff, but we also experienced particularly strong growth in sales of Sophos’ Unified Threat Management (UTM) – showing the largest revenue and largest growth of any UK partner. The Sophos UTM is a popular product owing to its comprehensive protection and intuitive dashboard. I think this award reinforces the fact that we’re very well positioned to provide customers with Sophos’ data security solutions – they’ll be in safe hands with us.”

The award follows last year’s haul of ‘Partner of the Year UK & Ireland’ and ‘Mid-market Partner of the Year’. Softcat also won partner awards with Sophos in 2012 and 2013.

Jonathan Batholomew, UK channel director, sales, commented: “Well done to all of the Softcat team for winning Sophos UKI Award - Mid-Market Partner of the year 2015 at the Sophos EMEA Partner Conference. Another awesome year for Softcat who have won this award for the second year in a row. As a Sophos Platinum Partner, Softcat continues to generate a large number of mid-market opportunities, both with existing Sophos customers and new. Extremely loyal to the Sophos brand, Softcat and Sophos partnership continues to grow from strength to strength. Thanks for all your hard work in FY15 and I look forward to working with them in FY16.”
