Exclusive Networks takes best distie gong in Gemalto Awards

Gold medal

Exclusive Networks has been named EMEA Distributor of the Year award at Gemalto's EMEA Partner Awards.

Gemalto recognised Exclusive Networks' investment in raising the technical knowledge of its staff and gaining Authorised Training Centre status as a result.

"Exclusive Networks achieved this through a solution rather than point product approach, incorporating Gemalto’s SafeNet data protection solutions into larger projects with technology partners," Rob Elliss, vice president of EMEA sales and operations for identity and data protection at Gemalto, said.

"Additionally, by driving the solution approach and offering tailored marketing support to their existing resellers, they have been able to show solid growth from their existing base as well."

Elliss added Exclusive Networks has also won a bid to become the exclusive distributor of Gemalto's SafeNet data protection solutions in the UK and Nordics from January.

Other companies celebrated for their contribution to the Gemalto partner community include German reseller NTT Security, which was given the award for its vision and understanding of evolving market trends and German distributor ADN, which won the gong for EMEA Partner Marketing Excellence Award of the Year.

"We will continue to invest in building a strong channel to support our growing customer base and enabling them to develop new solutions," Elliss added.

"With the ever-increasing number of data breaches in recent years as well as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) due to be implemented in May next year, we have a tremendous opportunity together to help businesses protect their data and ensure they are fully compliant with the new regulations."
