Recently, WatchGuard Platinum Partner Rockford IT attended WatchGuard’s Northern European Partner Conference where they were presented with UK Partner of the Year award.

The Partner Conference was held at Twickenham Stadium which saw near 200 people in attendance. After a day of informative presentations and learning more about WatchGuard Technologies future, Rockford IT were presented with their award.

WatchGuard Technologies are a big player in the IT security market, providing a full range of firewalls to suit any sized business. In the UK WatchGuard have over 70 certified partners so this was a great achievement for the Rockford IT team.

At last year’s event, Rockford IT’s Sales Manager, Richard Thomas was presented with Sales Person of the Year award, and Nick Deane, Rockford IT’s Head of Sales & Marketing, was awarded as Marketing Person of the Year, proving that Rockford IT and their staff are widely recognised by WatchGuard on many levels.

Since gaining their WatchGuard Professional Partner status in 2005, Rockford IT have come a long way in proving their expertise and product certification in the entire range of WatchGuard solutions, and in 2014 Rockford IT were invited to become WatchGuard’s first UK Platinum Partner. Platinum is WatchGuard’s highest level in its WatchGuardOne Partner Programme.

Rockford IT is one of very few companies in the UK who provide a 24 hour WatchGuard support service, so should any issues occur outside normal working hours, its experts can offer instant advice and support. This is particularly beneficial for many of Rockford IT’s customers who provide a 24/7 service, need ongoing security protections, and cannot afford downtime of their IT systems.

Furthermore to this Rockford IT in 2015 grew their WatchGuard sales by 93%. The Partner of the Year award takes into account revenue growth and it proves that Rockford IT have been able to maintain sales alongside technical expertise.

Tom Sykes, CEO of Rockford IT comments “I am very pleased to have accepted the 2016 WatchGuard Partner of the Year award on behalf of Rockford IT. This reflects the Rockford team’s commitment to WatchGuard as an organisation and its superb products in the very competitive security space.”

“Being awarded Partner of the Year is not only about numbers but about Rockford’s commitment to training, marketing and delivering the best possible technical solutions using WatchGuard’s technology. Every single employee in our organisation deals with WatchGuard in some way. Being Partner of the Year makes everyone in the business incredibly proud and driven to continue growing and being successful with this best in class security vendor.”
