Bytes Security Partnerships’ ability to grow its business with Forcepoint in 2018, aligning sales, marketing and technical efforts to increase their mutual business, has been rewarded with the coveted accolade of “Top EMEA Partner of the Year 2018” at Forcepoint’s annual Global sales kick-off in Orlando in February. This follows Bytes’ acceptance of the “EMEA Marketing Partner of the Year 2017” award last year.
A longstanding Platinum partner of Forcepoint, Bytes Security Partnerships (BSP) have made a real commitment in 2018 to grow their success with Forcepoint’s human-centric cybersecurity solutions which include web, email and data security offerings.
This approach has paid dividends; with Bytes growing their Forcepoint business by a staggering 35% in the year 2018. They have also taken strong strides technically to place them in the best position in 2019 to implement emerging Forcepoint solutions and continue at this rate of growth.
As well as rewarding strong sales performance, the award evidences the investment Bytes have made in developing skills in consulting, training, licensing and technical support, as well as executing a successful, integrated marketing plan for both emerging and existing Forcepoint products.
“Forcepoint seeks out and rewards those strategic and proactive partners who are keen to broaden their scope, and provide new, integrated opportunities to Forcepoint. Through their commitment and their technical prowess, the Bytes Security Partnerships team has demonstrated a strong and growing integration, and proven that Forcepoint’s human-centric and risk-adaptive approach presents a high growth opportunity for channel partners,” said Neal Lillywhite, VP EMEA Channel Sales at Forcepoint.
John Gilbertson, Managing Director of Bytes Security Partnerships, accredits their Forcepoint success to a concerted effort to align sales, marketing and technical efforts in communicating and delivering the core Forcepoint value proposition.
"Forcepoint is a key partner for Bytes. This award shows our clear commitment to delivering for our key partners. We are hungry to identify new opportunities for Forcepoint. Our team are proactive in introducing a good blend of Forcepoint products to our customers and actively seeking out prospects with complementary technologies who can benefit from Forcepoint solutions."
Bytes aim to continue this rate of growth this year, maintain their top tier Platinum Partner status for the 7th year running and align ever closer with the Forcepoint Channel team throughout 2019, to drive mutual business success and customer satisfaction.
