Here at Trend Micro we highly value the relationships we’ve build with our partners, especially those that have spanned several years. However, it’s particularly gratifying when those partners choose to recognize our work with an award.
So, excuse us while we toot our own horn’s for a bit.
Recently, we were honored to receive the VMware 2016 Global Partner Innovation Award in the Technical ISV category at the VMware Partner Leadership Summit 2017, held in Ranchos Palos Verdes, Calif. Recipients of a Global VMware Partner Innovation Award were acknowledged in 21 categories for outstanding performance and distinctive achievements during 2016.
For the last six years, Trend Micro has been recognized by VMware for the Japan Partner Award. However, this is the first time we have received the Global Technical Partner Award, and been recognized by the company on a world-wide scale.
“I am pleased to recognize this year’s Global Partner Innovation Award winners, which are given to a select group of partners for their exceptional efforts in 2016,” said Ross Brown, senior vice president, Worldwide Partners and Alliances, VMware. “VMware is proud to see Trend Micro win Partner of the Year and we look forward to our continued collaboration.”
Our teams have diligently worked to specifically build and optimize Trend Micro Deep Security™, powered by XGen™, to secure VMware customers around the world. Modern data centers using VMware products are able to fully protect their hybrid cloud environments from the latest threats without slowing down business operations. Additionally, we recently integrated our Mobile Security for Enterprises with VMware Airwatch to protect organizations from unsecured mobile devices.
We have a long-standing history of innovation and success with VMware. More than 10 years ago we partnered to bring modern security to the software-defined data center and cloud, and since then have continuously enhanced our relationship.
Although this award is a sincere honor, we will not let this remain the pinnacle of our partnership with VMware for long. On the heels of this recognition, our teams will strive for continued success (and hopefully be able to take this award home again next year).
We’ve had many successes along the way with joint product innovation, sales activity, and tech support collaboration, making us particularly proud of an award that recognizes the strength of our partnership.
