Duo has been awarded regional distributor of the year for Check Point Software Technologies, recognising 12 months of channel growth within Asia Pacific.

Awarded during CPX 360 - the vendor’s annual cyber security summit in Bangkok - the Wellington-based security specialists took home the honours ahead of a competitive field of distributors, spanning the entire region.

Specifically, the award is in recognition of 50 per cent growth with Check Point in 2018, alongside significant new market traction through emerging technologies.

“Duo is incredibly honoured to have won this award,” said Kendra Ross, co-founder and director at Duo. “To have the team and the company recognised at an Asia Pacific level validates our business model, our people and demonstrates the strength of our partnership with Check Point.”

Speaking to Reseller News on the sidelines of CPX 360 in Thailand, Ross said the value-added distributor plans to go deeper with both current and new partners during 2019, leveraging the vendor’s expanding product portfolio to achieve growth.

“I’m truly excited to continue driving growth in the channel,” Ross added. “Especially with the innovation we see coming from CheckPoint, with acquisitions like Dome9 and ForceNock

“It’s going to be a really exciting year for us and our channel partners.”

In a strong showing for the Kiwi channel, Spark New Zealand was also recognised, in acknowledgement of booking growth in 2018.
