DataTegra, a specialist IT security solutions and service provider, has received the inaugural African Enterprise Partner of the Year award from Kaspersky Lab.
The Enterprise Partner of the Year award, based on the total value of sales and new business brought in, is the highest accolade offered to Kaspersky Lab enterprise reseller partners in their regions.
With a footprint on the African continent, DataTegra has been providing Kaspersky Lab’s solutions to its African enterprise customers for over three years and has seen a considerable growth in sales across the continent over the past year.
“The award was achieved as a result of the hard work and perseverance that DataTegra has put into growing our African business and our specific focus on the Kaspersky products,”says Tinus Oosthuizen, DataTegra Managing Director.
“DataTegra’s focus is on offering our customers best-of-breed IT security products and customer service, and we believe that this award proves our approach is effective. We develop strong partnerships with our clients, ensuring that we provide solutions that are innovative, cost-effective and tailored to perfectly suit each customer’s individual needs,” says Oosthuizen.
“Kaspersky Lab’s product range allows us to help businesses of all sizes across Africa achieve world-class security, availability and integrity of information and network infrastructure. DataTegra has also invested resources and training into our technical division and help desk, enabling us to offer the best technical skills and support of these products to our base.”
He adds that the success DataTegra has seen in Africa with Kaspersky Lab is also the result of the support offered by the international security giant to its channel partners, providing the company with an effective foundation for growth. “Kaspersky Lab always backs up their product with open support to their resellers, offering the key elements required when closing a deal with end users, showing end users that support flows through the entire supplier chain.”
Riaan Badenhorst, Managing Director Kaspersky Lab Africa says; “The decision to add an African award to our regional Enterprise Reseller of the Year category was as a result of the growth seen on the African continent over the last year, much of which was the result of DataTegra’s hard work.”
“DataTegra will continue to find ways to offer innovative, simple, and evolutionary solutions to its customers, says Oosthuizen, and looks forward to further African growth. “We are proud to have achieved this award and will continue to focus on excellence across all of our African regions. We believe our approach will continue to deliver results and look forward to growing with Kaspersky Lab in the future.”
