Dimension Data, a $5,8-billion global IT services and solutions provider, is the recipient of McAfee’s EMEA Systems Integrator of the Year 2012 award. Each year McAfee, the world’s largest dedicated security technology company, honours its top partners that have demonstrated focus and skills around McAfee’s technology to help clients achieve their security objectives while driving better business performance.
The award from McAfee is further evidence of another successful year for the McAfee and Dimension Data relationship. In 2011, McAfee signed its first Global Solution Provider Agreement with Dimension Data. In addition, McAfee named Dimension Data Global Partner of the Year and EMEA Systems Integration Partner of the Year.
“Prior to signing the Global Solution Provider agreement with McAfee last year, Dimension Data was a committed local and multi-regional McAfee Elite Partner for over 10 years,” says Sean Duffy, GM: Security Solutions, Dimension Data MEA.
“Our long-standing history of collaboration – particularly around global and multinational opportunities – means Dimension Data is able to effectively and reliably secure the operating environments of our local and global clients using McAfee’s leading security technologies.
“When it comes to information security, there’s little margin for error.
“Dimension Data’s global footprint, multinational capabilities, delivery track record and expertise to support organisations with services and products across the full McAfee portfolio, allows us as a partner to help organisations achieve compliance and increase productivity, while maintaining a solid security posture – from endpoints to the core of the network.”
“Being recognised as the McAfee 2012 EMEA Systems Integrator of the Year demonstrates Dimension Data’s strong partnership with McAfee that has led to solid momentum together in the EMEA market,” says Gavin Struthers, senior VP, Worldwide Channels at McAfee.
