As Queensland drew first State of Origin blood in Sydney last night, Brisbane-based information specialists Intalock was also celebrating, claiming the top honour during the 2016 Veritas Partner Awards.
Honoured during an intimate evening under the Vivid lights, a host of key partners gathered for the inaugural Veritas channel awards, following the company’s split from Symantec earlier this year.
In claiming the Veritas Partner of the Year 2016 award, Intalock was joined on stage by Global Storage, who took out Veritas Growth Partner of the Year 2016, with Dicker Data winning the distribution category.
Recognising the top performing partners who have demonstrated strong business growth during the past 12 months, Datacom, Insight Enterprises, InfoTrust and Insentra also took home awards, while Hitachi Data Systems was recognised as a key alliance partner.
“Veritas has been on a significant journey over the last year,” Veritas Pacific managing director, Louis Tague, said.
“We separated out from Symantec and successfully stood up as an independent company focused solely on information management.
“A substantial part of that successful transition is due to the loyalty, focus and talents of our channel partners.”
Following 10 years operating as a combined entity, Veritas separated from Symantec in February 2016, zoning in on its information management heritage.
As a long-standing partner, Intalock - who claimed both Veritas and Symantec regional partner awards in 2015 - was recognised for its “established revenue based around Veritas offerings”, including a “track record of significant deals won.”
“Over the years we have seen Intalock grow and mature as a business, to the point where they now operate in multiple States and have market leading expertise in all of our key Veritas technology areas,” Tague added.
“Their growth, focus and technical expertise make them a very worthy winner of this top Veritas award”.
With a total of eight awards during the evening, partners ranged from service providers to consulting firm, as well as technology alliances to distribution.
“We’re immensely proud of the vibrant channel partnerships that have evolved around Veritas standing up as an independent company,” Veritas Pacific senior manager of Channels, Janet Docherty, added.
“Some of our channel partners have dealt with us for many years prior to the split, others are brand new partners engaged post-split.
“Some are multi-national companies and others are specialised partners focused on one particular part of the Veritas portfolio. All are essential for a healthy channel landscape.”
