Global distributor Westcon-Comstor Sub-Saharan Africa, has announced it has been awarded the Check Point African Distributor of the year for 2020.

The announcement follows recent news that Westcon also clinched the accolade as EMEA distributor of the year (2020) and is a testament to the global commitment and emphasis the distributor places on its relationship with the security software vendor.

Globally businesses face a cyber pandemic and Check Point recently issued a report stating that over 80% of enterprises found their existing security tools don’t work at all or have only limited functions in the cloud.

“Every year, cybersecurity makes it to the top ten most critical technologies to keep on your watchlist, and every year we try and stress the importance of it to our channel and their end-users. In this past year, we have seen a rampant increase in cybercriminals as remote working expanded the attack surface, resulting in the need for security that is intrinsic, agile, and extends beyond a single application,” said Rakesh Parbhoo, CEO, Westcon-Comstor Sub-Saharan Africa. “A vendor who consistently manages to keep pace with industry changes is Check Point and I am delighted that they have recognised the Westcon-Comstor team’s ongoing efforts to position them as a leader in security by awarding us African distributor of the year.”

The Check Point distributor of the year award is given to the distributor that consistently exceeds expectations in sales, channel enablement, marketing alignment, training and business growth in their region. Westcon-Comstor has, through a trying year for many, managed to forge ahead with its data-driven lead generation, sales enablement, and support efforts to the channel.

“I would like to take this time to thank the Check Point team for their commitment to our partnership, their support and trust in us over the last year. There is no doubt that 2020 was a challenging year for all industries across all geographies. Which makes this award so special as it stands as testament and recognition of the tireless efforts of our team across sub-Saharan Africa not just in sales, but in partner enablement and customer value generation and experience,” said Parbhoo.
