Symantec's local channel partners were recognised at this year’s Symantec Pacific Partner Awards held at the Park Hyatt in Sydney.

Ingram Micro Australia was named Distributor of the Year while Datacom Australia was selected as SMB Market Specialist Partner of the Year.

Insight was the Specialised Partner of the Year, while Intalock and Gen-i were selected as Specialised Growth Partners of the Year for Australia and New Zealand respectively.

Insentra was Symantec’s Services Partner of the Year in Australia, while RHEis was the New Zealand winner.

The ExSP Partner of the Year award went to Datacom New Zealand.

Symantec Pacific region vice-president and managing director, Brenton Smith, said each of the awarded partners made “outstanding achievements” and demonstrated a deep investment in the vendor as their specialisation expertise is expanded.

“Partners have always been of great importance to Symantec and will be even more so in the future as we continue to evolve our offerings and improve our levels of service and support,” he said.

“Working with our partners, we’re extending this positive momentum to drive more collective success, continuing to collaborate to protect the information of businesses and organisations across A/NZ, whether it is on premise, in the Cloud or mobile.”

Criteria such as overall performance in revenue, achievement of Symantec Specialisations, deal registration, technical and marketing investments, and customer service excellence were used in determining the winners.
