Foursys Ltd, a specialist in network security solutions, was crowned Sophos UK Partner of the Year for the tenth consecutive year.
IT security and data protection firm Sophos has announced the results of its 2011 UK Partner Awards, bestowing the title of 'UK Partner of the Year' on Foursys for the tenth consecutive year. Smashing all previous records for new and renewal business, Foursys also received the coveted title for their ongoing commitment to Sophos and willingness to engage across many areas of the business.
In addition to 'UK Partner of the Year', Foursys also once again received the accolade of 'Public Sector Partner of the Year'. This was awarded based on their high levels of proactive involvement with Sophos’s Public Sector team, in particular with the NHS, and their ability to help Sophos drive through new initiatives in that sector.
"Foursys is very pleased to have won the Sophos awards for UK Partner of the Year for ten years in a row and also Public Sector Partner of the Year for the second time in a row," said Paul Prior, MD of Foursys. "We’ve worked closely with Sophos for over 12 years now and feel the relationship is stronger now than it has ever been. The sales, technical, financial and management teams at Sophos and Foursys are all working really closely together which means we get it right and we are both putting customer service at the top of the agenda. What has been really good news in the past year has been the new Sophos pricing initiatives in the NHS and Education sectors, and also the new SafeGuard product line, all of which have led to significant new business and cross-selling opportunities. This coming year will be a real challenge for all of us but the opportunities now are significant for both Sophos and Foursys, especially in view of the recent Astaro acquisition."
Stuart Lambert at Foursys, was awarded 'Outstanding Individual Contribution' for his significant personal contribution, deep understanding of the Sophos portfolio and close working partnership with the Sophos public sector team over the past twelve months. Those at Sophos who have worked with Stuart described him as a ‘real asset to the team’.
