ITHealth awarded prestigious Sophos ‘Select’ partner status

ITHealth is delighted to announce that it has recently been awarded ‘Select’ Partner status from leading IT security vendor, Sophos. ITHealth is currently one of only five Sophos Select Partners in the UK & Ireland – the only Select partner who is solely dedicated to serving the NHS marketplace.

“This new Sophos Select Partner status sits above the already prestigious Platinum Partner level. It has been designed to distinguish the most strategic of partners taking into account the exceptional contribution they make to Sophos both financially and on a strategic proactive engagement level”, said Ben Roberts, Sophos Channel Account Director. “It’s intended that it will always remain a very exclusive group and I’m delighted that ITHealth are part of it – they thoroughly deserve the accolade.”

ITHealth’s new Sophos Select Partner status comes within only ten months of having been named a Platinum Partner, as well as achieving the coveted UK&I Healthcare Partner of the Year 2017 award. It further demonstrates ITHealth’s expertise across the full suite of Sophos solutions.

Commenting on the announcement, Brett Draper, Managing Director said: “Our relationship with Sophos is stronger than it has ever been and this only brings benefit to our customers. The award is a strong endorsement of our capabilities with Sophos solutions, with which we are seeing much success within our existing NHS customer base.”

ITHealth have seen unprecedented growth recently as NHS customers have been able to see the benefits of a consolidated approach to cyber security through Sophos, as well Sophos’s anti-ransomware Intercept X product which now includes deep learning driven malware detection.

“At Sophos, we recognise the integral part our partners play in our success, and therefore we consistently invest in our partner community and look to recognise key players”, said Jonathan Bartholomew, UK Channel Director. “Partners awarded ‘Select’ status have at least one thing in common – that is their willingness to engage with us and go the extra mile in order to create solutions that best meet the needs of customers.”

ITHealth is proud to be able to continue to offer its customers the best protection against sophisticated security threats and this enhanced partner status demonstrates its commitment to the NHS marketplace.
