Forcepoint has announced the winners of its EMEA Channel Partner Awards, highlighting the most progressive and innovative partners in its network.

The awards spanned a huge range of categories, from marketing success (won by Bytes Security Partnerships), emerging markets leaders (BMB Group), UK & Ireland successes (Softcat), central and eastern Europe premium partners (e-Xpert Solutions SA), the Rising Star Award (Project Informatica SRL) and of course the overall EMEA Distributor of the Year, which was awarded to Starlink.

“We are delighted to celebrate the success which investment in our human-centric security approach brings to our EMEA network of partners,” said Neal Lillywhite, vice president of Channel for the EMEA region.

“Forcepoint is driving an inflection point in the cybersecurity industry. The approach the industry has taken to date simply isn’t working any longer. It was built for a different time, a different and more tightly held IT environment and a different threat landscape."

Forcepoint's awards were presented at the gala dinner that topped off its annual EMEA Channel Partner in Lisbon, Portugal. The channel conference itself brought its key partners from across the region together to learn about its human-centric strategy and intelligent Human Point System range of products and service.

"At Forcepoint, we are reinventing security with our human-centric approach, by delivering uncompromising systems that understand people’s behavior and motivations as they interact with data and IP everywhere,” Lillywhite added.
