Cybersecurity vendor McAfee has announced the winners of its McAfee Channel Partner Awards 2017 for India and Asia Pacific.
The awards – announced at the company’s MPOWER and Partner Summit event, held at Sydney’s Darling Harbour — recognize partners who demonstrated the embodiment of three foundational pillars of the McAfee Partner Program: strategic relationships, profitable partnerships and driving better customer outcomes.
McAfee’s MPOWER Cyber Security summit marked the first time the series came to the Asia Pacific region.
“Our channel partners are important to McAfee and we’re proud to support them for their great work with these prestigious accolades,” said Rajeev Sreedhar, channel director India at McAfee.
Over 750 technology professionals and their peers, including CISO’s, IT managers, security analysts, security architects, managing directors along with technical and non-technical consultants ranging from some of the region’s largest corporations, through to SMEs and start-ups attended the channel program.
The Partner Summit event provided a platform for direct participation amongst channel partners where they could share feedback, discussions, strategies and insights on the security industry landscape. This year, partners from 14 countries and 26 cities across APAC attended the event.
“Partners are integral to our success and lead the way in driving our entire channel to improve and deliver high quality customer outcomes,” said Jagdish Mahapatra, head of Channel Sales and Alliances, Asia Pacific.
