TSG wins key Sophos award for 8th year in a row

TSG is proud to announce that we have won the Sophos 2018 UK Small Business Partner of the Year Award for the 8th consecutive year. 

Winning this award is a huge achievement. However, winning this award for 8 consecutive years is a testament to our strong partnership with Sophos, hard work and highly-accredited staff.

The Sophos Small Business Partner of the Year award takes the following areas into consideration:

  • Commitment to training
  • Product adoption
  • Security council
  • Promoting the importance of security through events and webinars

TSG’s Chief Technology Officer Paul Burns and Senior Technical Specialist Grant Campbell attended the partner conference to accept the award. Burns said of the latest award win: “We’re delighted to once again be awarded SMB Partner of the Year. Our partnership with Sophos continues to go from strength to strength as we collaborate on security solutions, events and webinars.

Our staff contains some of the most highly-qualified Sophos experts in the field and lets our customers know that they’re in safe hands with TSG and Sophos.

We’re looking forward to our flagship security event with Sophos, UNW and Barclays next month, which will give attendees a well-rounded view of the cyber-security landscape, from the perspective of security and legal experts.”
