SurfControl has announced Commander as its 2007 Partner of the Year.
"The value of Commander's average SurfControl deal has increased significantly over the past financial year," SurfControl general manager, Phil Vasic, said. "We've shifted our focus towards a fully integrated channel model. Having the support of partners like Commander has made the transition easier and the change is almost complete."
Commander general manager enterprise, Steve Evans, said one of the major drivers behind Commander's success was its national coverage and approach to vendor management.
"Commander services SMBs, as well as government and enterprises, and has a focus on the education and defence verticals. We have a strong relationship with our customers and, most importantly, provide continuity of service at a national level.
"There's also a good fit between SurfControl's licensing model and the Commander sales environment."
