Ireland, 15th June 2017: Agile Networks, Ireland’s leading independent network integrator, has been recognised as a Partner of the Year by Juniper Networks, an industry leader in automated, scalable, and secure networks. Agile Networks won ‘The Juniper Innovation Award for Security’ and was recognised specifically for its success in helping secure the networks of high profile customers across both the public and private sector. The replacement of legacy security products with new, scalable, and cloud-based security solutions in its customer base has resulted in a significant increase in market share for the Dublin-based network integrator.
Agile Networks designs, builds and supports networks for some of Ireland’s leading businesses and organisations. The company supports over 2.3 million end users across 4,900 sites for 100 major customers every day, including 16 of the top 25 Internet Service Providers in Ireland.
Commenting on the award win, Darragh Richardson, Managing Director, Agile Networks said, “We are absolutely delighted to win The Juniper Innovation Award for Security, and it is a huge privilege to be recognised as the best in class against our peer group across EMEA. The competition within our category was extremely strong, and it is testament to the hard work of our team and the processes we apply every day to ensure we meet and exceed our customers’ needs.”
“Juniper is pleased to honour the partners who use their ingenuity and business acumen to solve customers’ biggest challenges in building secure, next-generation cloud environments,” said Martin Hester, Head of Channels and Alliances, EMEA at Juniper Networks. “We congratulate Agile Networks for its outstanding achievements and commitment in technology and customer service and we look forward to continuing to strengthen our relationship with them.”
