Sophos, a global provider of network and endpoint security recently presented awards to six of its top performing channel partners from the Middle East and Africa region at its EMEA Partner Conference which was held in Portugal recently.

The event brought together key channel partners from around the EMEA region to discuss their market strategy and to plan how to add value to customers as threat experts.

According to the vendor, the awards were aimed at recognising channel partners for their proactive approach and significant achievements in FY 17 with the event attracting 750 attendees across Europe, Middle East and Africa.

"We would like to congratulate our winning partners and extend our gratitude to all our partners for their continuous support and commitment in embracing our complete IT security value proposition and recognising the benefits of delivering our award-winning, simple-to-use security solutions to their customers, " commented Harish Chib, vice president, Middle East and Africa (MEA) at Sophos.

"The partner conference is a good opportunity to get our partners synchronised with our vision and strategy, our product roadmap and training. It also gives them a chance to network face to face with our team, and get to know and discuss the company's partner strategy for accelerating profitable growth together. We are becoming a disruptive leader in the IT security market, and the company's dedication to the success of its partners is second to none," added Chib.
