Datapac awarded the title of Sophos ‘Irish Partner of the Year’ for 2013
Sophos awarded the coveted partner title to Datapac due to its ability to identify and secure new business opportunities, as well as business renewals, throughout the past year.
Datapac also demonstrated exceptional commitment in the areas of sales and engineer training, to ensure excellence across the entire spectrum of the Sophos IT security portfolio. This year’s Sophos Partner Awards were held at the Intercontinental Hotel in Athens, as part of the Sophos EMEA Partner Conference 2013. The prestigious international event gives Sophos partners an insight into the company’s future plans and developments, which include a strong focus on simplifying IT security for small and medium enterprises, along with a renewed investment in Sophos’ channel partners through its innovative ‘Channel First’ program.
Datapac currently holds the highest Sophos accreditation in Ireland and Dermot Hayden, Sophos Country Manager, Ireland commented on this partnership, “Sophos’ annual conference and awards ceremony is about recognising our partners’ efforts over the past year and in the case of Datapac, they have been an exceptional partner in the Irish market for some time now. We are therefore delighted to recognise that strong investment in our partnership by awarding Datapac the title of Irish Partner of the Year 2013”.
Karen O’Connor, general manager service delivery, Datapac, said, “This award recognises Datapac’s growing presence in the Irish IT security market. Our on-going commitment to growing and up-skilling our team, ensures our customers are receiving the highest quality of service and expertise.
“As the security landscape continues to evolve, Sophos is designing and releasing innovative technologies to combat the growing threats. At Datapac, we complement this with our local knowledge and experience, to ensure Irish businesses are protected at all times.”
"At Barretstown, we rebuild the lives of children, and their families, affected by childhood cancer and other serious illnesses. We serve 5,000 campers a year and have 1200 volunteers each year. Communication is crucially important and Datapac has helped us to streamline, improve and ensure efficiency."
"Datapac has provided us with a fantastic product and world-class levels of service and support. Whenever people ask me about our experience with Datapac I’m always ready to sing their praises and I would happily recommend their services to any organisation."
"For many years Datapac has been our sole supplier for the maintenance of Personal Computers and Peripherals in Ireland. Through their Service Centres in Wexford and Dublin, Datapac provides excellent support to our businesses throughout the country and consistently meets the SLA targets which we have set. The skill, expertise and experience of their engineers and other technical support personnel are of the highest standard."
“The value of dealing with an HP Gold partner in this process can’t be underestimated. Datapac provide us with a local touch and can cover the full range of our IT requirements, but when there is a specific technical requirement like this, they can bring the specialist technical resources of HP to the table. HP and Datapac had a thorough discussion with us around our requirement - and had really done their homework - and then were able to provide us with a very highly specified test platform for us to prove the application on before we committed to purchase.”
Datapac understands our needs and requirements and has the expertise and experience to follow through on all our requests. Our constant need to reduce costs has been assisted by Datapac's ability to suggest alternative solutions and methods whilst improving both efficiency and productivity. Our partnership with Datapac is akin to having an IT department on site that we simply could not provide ourselves.
