“FireMon’s Ignite Partner of the Year award celebrates the ongoing commitment of our partners to help organisations secure their networks at a time of massive change and challenge,” said Andrew Warren, vice president of global channel sales at FireMon.

“Celebrating our partners is just one of the many ways we recognise their critical role in helping our customers and driving our business.” 

“With an ever-evolving threat landscape, more and more organisations have turned to Agile Networks to mitigate cyber risk across their network infrastructure,” explains Kenn Larkin, CEO with Agile Networks.
