Security software vendor Sophos has acknowledged the award winning efforts of its top channel partners in Australia and New Zealand at Sophos Discovery on 23 August.

The partners that were awarded Partner of the Year were Exigo Tech and HD IT in Australia as a result of efforts of growing their Sophos business by 50 per cent and taking Sophos' synchronised security strategy to customers. 

Vivek Trivedi, managing director of Exigo Tech and business partner for HD IT, said the win was a “really, really proud moment” for the team.

“This is a reconfirmation that we have chosen the right partner. We have chosen the right message to the market and being partner of the year for 2019 gives a lot of confirmations to the business strategy and the market reputation.”
