Accuvant Named First-Ever U.S. Partner of the Year by Blue Coat Systems

DENVER – December 2, 2010 – Accuvant, the only research-driven information security partner delivering alignment, clarity and confidence to enterprise clients, today announced that it has been named 2010 U.S. Partner of the Year by Blue Coat Systems. This is the first time that Blue Coat has named a partner of the year for its entire U.S. region.

The award, which recognizes Accuvant for successfully embracing and delivering on the Blue Coat Application Delivery Networking strategy to enterprise organizations across the United States, was presented at the recent Blue Coat Americas Partner Conference in Las Vegas.  Criteria for the award were based upon revenue growth, technical certifications, and balance across the Blue Coat product portfolio. Last year, Accuvant was honored as Partner of the Year for the Western Region by Blue Coat. 

“Accuvant has the market expertise and technological savvy for delivering value to its end users that consistently make it a top performer for Blue Coat,” said Jim Harold, vice president of worldwide channel sales for Blue Coat Systems. “This award is a validation of Accuvant’s commitment to provide the best solutions to the marketplace.”

“As a leading technology innovator, Blue Coat has developed application delivery and WAN optimization solutions that are highly sought after by our client base. More and more customers are not willing to trade performance for security and Blue Coat has led the market in building technologies that boast both benefits,” said Dan Wilson, co-founder and vice president of partner alliances for Accuvant. “We recognize the value of Blue Coat’s solutions and are committed to educating our growing talent base so they can most effectively deploy Blue Coat solutions to clients.”
