Vectra honours UK Cyberdefense partners with partner awards

March 2, 2022

London, United Kingdom – March 2, 2022 – Vectra AI, a leader in threat detection and response, today announced the winners of their 2021 "Partner of the Year" awards. The awards emphasise the importance of Vectra’s partners, who are essential to the company's success in the United Kingdom and beyond.

“Following a relentless wave of high-profile cyberattacks over the past year, the importance of security is now well understood by decision makers in most organisations. But many are in distress. The volume and sophistication of attacks has increased, and the attack surface has widened as organisations shifted to hybrid working models and cloud solutions," explains Garry Veale, Regional Sales Director UKI at Vectra. "What’s more, the security space has become increasingly crowded, making it hard to spot truly impactful solutions and separate the wheat from the chaff. So, qualified and committed consultants, MSSPs, resellers, and distributors are critical – acting as trusted advisors and guides for customers. With a 100% channel program that doubled in size over 2021, Vectra is confident it fits the bill to help partners secure their customers in a complex threat landscape.”  

Four awards for partners in United Kingdom and Ireland

In the United Kingdom and Ireland, Vectra has presented four awards to its strongest partners from the past year:

  • Computacenter – Newcomer Partner of the Year 2021 (United Kingdom)
  • Orange Cyberdefense – MSSP Partner of the Year 2021 (United Kingdom)
  • Core To Cloud – Public Sector Partner of the Year 2021 (United Kingdom)
  • NTT Ltd – Enterprise Partner of the Year 2021 (United Kingdom)

Andy Forshaw, Regional Partner Manager for United Kingdom at Vectra commented:

“The huge growth and acceleration in multi cloud adoption has complicated security for most organisations. They have become increasingly exposed, overwhelmed, and at risk, and are beginning to understand the importance of taking a proactive and decisive approach to securing their environment. This is changing how organisations select Channel Partners, MSSPs and vendors. They are looking for more from their channel partners in terms of proactive and invested advice and recommendations.”  

“Rather than looking at multiple vendors tactically, organisations are looking for their partners and MSSPs to become stakeholders in their business strategy. In response, partners must step up, becoming trusted advisors who understand the business challenges clients are trying to solve and make decisive decisions around solutions and services. This is why we are pleased to recognise our partners achievements with these awards.”

Dominic Trott, Product Manager at Orange Cyberdefense commented:

“I am delighted to accept the MSSP Partner of the year award on behalf of Orange Cyberdefense. Vectra is a key partner for us, underpinning our market-leading Managed Threat Detection (MTD) portfolio of offerings. Vectra has been our go-to partner for Network Detection and Response (NDR) for years now, but I am particularly excited by the expanding horizons of our relationship: together we are delivering new solutions to emerging customer challenges, such as tracking attacker identities through the cloud.”

Phil Howe, CTO of Core To Cloud stated:

“We want to thank Vectra for recognising all the work Core to Cloud has been doing helping organisations accurately detect threats in their network including the early stages of Ransomware covering from your 'Core to Cloud'.  We continue to recommend these best of breed products as a key part of our recommended security stack to our customers allowing them to have full visibility - the gift of sight.”

Craig Shepherd, Sales Director – Sales Specialist at NTT Ltd commented:

“It is great to be recognised as the UK&I Vectra Enterprise Partner of the Year and we are delighted to accept this award. Our technology, innovation and comprehensive portfolio of global services enable business transformation, and the Vectra Threat Detection and Response platform is a key part of this. We’re looking forward to working even more closely with them in 2022.”
