Symantec Honors 'Specializing' Partners

Symantec executives honored solution providers who went above and beyond to drive sales and invest in specializations with its 2010 North American Partner Awards, presented to Americas partners Wednesday.

The partners were recognized in front of hundreds of their peers attending the 2010 Symantec PartnerEngage partner conference at the MGM Grand hotel in Las Vegas. The awards highlight outstanding performance and investment in Symantec, as well as demonstrated expertise in solution areas that set the bar for other partners.

Symantec handed out its U.S. Partner of the Year award to ITS Partners, a Grand Rapids, Mich. professional services VAR, for its strong public sector presence and ability to drive a strong combination of professional services and technical support services around DLP and endpoint management, among other things.

Randy Cochran, Symantec vice president of Americas channel sales said that ITS Partners had 21 new deals in public sector alone.

"You name it, they've done it," he said. "Without you guys, we can't be successful."
