“No matter where you are in the world, trust is earned every day,” says Sabine Howest, Ingram Micro’s vice president of global partner engagement.
With security among our partners’ top concerns, as well as one of our fastest-growing global businesses, earning that trust has never been more important. That’s why we’re proud to announce that Ingram Micro has been named the 2019 NextWave Global Distributor of the Year by Palo Alto Networks for our commitment to addressing today’s most challenging security needs with the Palo Alto Networks portfolio.
According to Palo Alto Networks, the honor is due to the energy, efforts and collaboration between Cloud Harmonics, an award-winning, next-gen specialty distributor that Ingram Micro acquired in late 2017, and the investments we’ve made in establishing regional Centers of Excellence within our global Ingram Micro Security business. Examples called out at the ceremony included Ingram Micro’s systematic approach to wrapping adjacent solutions and services around the Palo Alto Networks ecosystem, as well as the simple strategy of “doing what it said it would do.”
The award also recognized:
- Exceptional sales performance across multiple geographies
- Record-breaking year-over-year business growth
- Unwavering commitment to ensuring that Palo Alto Networks partners had the right level of sales, technical and financial support to grow their security practices
- Continued investments in cloud and cybersecurity to help partners expand into high-margin markets
“We set out to win big with Palo Alto Networks and are honored to be recognized as its Global Distributor of the Year,” says Howest. “We’ll continue to work hand-in-hand with Cloud Harmonics and Palo Alto Networks to provide our collective partners with the latest education and technology required to establish themselves as trusted security advisors to help their customers grow.”
