DRS, a Cyber 1 company, has scooped four awards at the McAfee Partner event.The awards, held on 01 August 2018 at Rockets in Bryanston, acknowledged partners who have shown overall performance, including deep expertise on the full range of McAfee’s cyber security solutions, sales alignment and committed investment to the company’s technologies. The accolades also recognised McAfee’s top partners, who have shown outstanding commitment to the cyber security giant’s technologies.
Early last year, DRS became the first McAfee partner in the Middle East and Africa to be awarded McAfee Authorized Support Provider (MASP) status.
“I believe the commitment we have shown towards growing McAfee in the region, coupled with our comprehensive cyber security offering and top security skills, was behind DRS being awarded Revenue Partner of the Year, Enterprise Partner of the Year, Technical Guru of the Year and MVP of the year. In addition, our exceptional growth in joint business execution, and technical and process investment in the McAfee Managed Security Program (MSP), helped pave the way,” says DRS CEO Robert Brown.
The MSP investment allows DRS to offer customers a comprehensive range of managed McAfee security offerings as part of its general managed cyber security service or as part of a wider outsourcing offering.
Brown says: “Winning the McAfee Revenue Partner of the Year Award in our region highlights our dedication to delivering comprehensive managed cyber security solutions across Africa. Our partnership with McAfee is key to the success of our overall security offering and has enabled us to deliver real value to our clients, and has helped them secure their most valuable information assets.”
DRS scopes, installs, manages and optimises McAfee solutions that allow its customers to integrate security across the business, and align data protection efforts with the overall business goals. “McAfee’s range of products gives us best-in-class protection, agility and visibility, enabling us to do this,” concludes MJ Strydom, DRS’s MD.
