ESET, recently acknowledged the successes and innovations of its partners at its annual Partner Awards events held from April to June in Namibia, Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg.
With growth and sustainability as its central theme for 2022, the awards aim to recognise and reward excellent performance, resilience, as well as a commitment and meaningful contribution to ESET’s vision of protecting digital progress in Southern Africa.
CEO of ESET South Africa, Carey van Vlaanderen, says this year’s awards were particularly exciting given ESET’s new brand positioning. “We’re thrilled that our valued partners have championed our core belief about the power of human ideas as a catalyst for technological progress – which deserves to be protected.
