Saudi operation of UAE reseller takes home the top prize at vendor’s awards ceremony
The Saudi Arabian operation of UAE-based Mideast Data Systems (MDS) has been crowned Symantec's Middle East partner of the year following its efforts in the market during the past 12 months. MDS Saudi Arabia has now won the award two years in a row.
At a special awards ceremony to cap its recent MENA Partner Summit in Dubai, Symantec gave MDS Saudi Arabia the title for its achievements in service delivery, skills development, business development and customer relations.
The reseller also achieved the highest revenue targets in Symantec's FY10 fiscal year.
MDS was one of nine resellers to pick up awards as Symantec paid tribute to the companies that have helped drive its security, availability and information management portfolio in the Middle East.
"These awards recognise those in the channel who have consistently delivered a superior service to customers during FY10," stated Ramzi Itani, channel manager for the Middle East and North Africa at Symantec.
"Looking forward, we are encouraging our partners, through Symantec's latest Partner Programme enhancement, to specialise in Symantec's solutions and services. This year we aim to provide our Middle East partners with new tools and incentives to drive their regional growth and profitability," he added.
The other resellers to pick up awards were Seven Seas, Versatile Solutions, ITS, Help AG, Protechnology (Jordan and UAE), Condo Protego and Value Added Solutions.
Al Falak Distribution and Aptec Gulf collected the two distribution accolades on offer, while individual awards went to Mindware's Anas Rasheed and Aptec's Alia Hussain.
