We are delighted to announce that Proofpoint has been named a finalist in the Vendor Innovation – Security category at the upcoming ARN Innovation Awards 2021.
Collectively, ARN’s Innovation Awards stands tall as the leading forum for setting the industry benchmark for ecosystem excellence across Australia – with this year seeing a record-breaking number of submissions spanning partner, start-up, telco, vendor and distributor businesses. This year’s edition will honour the channel across eight categories, including Partner Innovation, Tech Innovation, Australia-wide Innovation, Start-up Innovation, Personal Innovation, Vendor Innovation, Distributor Innovation and Hall of Fame.
A channel-first organisation, Proofpoint is committed to ongoing innovation and is the most deployed solution to protect the #1 threat vector – email - in the Fortune 100, Fortune 1000, and Global 2000. Our solutions deliver a unique new approach to people-centric cybersecurity, which reflects the current advanced threat landscape faced by organisations of all sizes today. These solutions are powered by unmatched threat intelligence given the diverse nature of our global customer base and intelligence gathering across email (both corporate and service provider), cloud, and SaaS threats.
“ARN congratulates Proofpoint on becoming a finalist in the vendor innovation – security category,” said Cherry Yumul, vice president of Strategic Partnerships and Innovation at IDG. “The 15th running of ARN Innovation Awards has undoubtedly captured the most challenging yet transformative period of the Australian channel. On the one hand, battling against the odds to keep businesses running during COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions, yet on the other, raising the bar for industry excellence through the deployment of bleeding-edge technologies and solutions. Such juxtaposition perfectly illustrates the DNA of this industry – tough and transformative in equal measure.”
The winners will now be selected by an executive panel of industry judges – acknowledging creativity, innovation and excellence – before being announced at a celebration dinner at ICC Sydney on Thursday 9 December 2021.
