During Vision 2014, we announced the winners of our second annual Global Partner Excellence Awards. These awards recognize our global partners for their commitment to driving business success and positively contributing to their customers, the partner community and Symantec. This year’s winners were selected for excellence in three key categories: Innovation, Growth and Collaboration.
The Symantec Innovation Award was presented to Accenture for demonstrating unique leadership in developing solutions that addressed specific customer needs. These solutions also raised the value of our technology to the next level in scope and capabilities. Accenture created a joint offering that provided customers with analytics to create business outcome-specific security intelligence, effective visualization techniques on mobile devices to show real-time security metrics, and improved information protection posture insight to become proactive instead of reactive.
Deloitte won the Symantec Growth Award for its consistent, sustainable and profitable growth through joint solutions over the past year. The company achieved 58 % year-over-year growth withSymantec; grew from a go-to-market focused on managed security services and data protection to include multi-factor authentication, compliance, incidence response and availability solutions; and expanded global offerings into seven new markets around the world.
At Vision, we also celebrate our global partners with an award to a partner who has demonstrated the power and value of collaboration. The Symantec Collaboration Award was earned by Deutsche Telekom as it demonstrated the best example of overall partnership collaboration with Symantec. Deutsche Telekom developed lighthouse solutions that demonstrated how to monetize and leverage security services as its number one value-added service to support the acquisition of new customers. The company also presented its outstanding joint results to other carriers to help Symantec address and win new business opportunities.
Congratulations to our winners and thank to you all of our partners who participated!
