DRS wins McAfee Partner Of The Year Award

Dynamic Recovery Services (DRS), an IT services and solutions provider and a Cognosec AB company, has announced it scooped the 2017 McAfee Partner of the Year Award, for North, Eastern Europe and Africa for the second consecutive year.


The awards, held on 28 November at the McAfee Mpower event in Amsterdam, acknowledged partners who have shown overall performance, including deep expertise on the full range of McAfee’s security solutions, sales alignment and committed investment to the company’s technologies. The accolades also recognised McAfee’s top partners, who have shown outstanding commitment to the security giant’s technologies.


Earlier this year, DRS became the first McAfee partner in the Middle East and Africa to be awarded McAfee Authorized Support Provider (MASP) status.


“I believe the commitment we have shown towards growing McAfee in the region, coupled with our comprehensive security offering and top security skills, was behind DRS being awarded Partner of the Year. In addition, our exceptional growth in joint business execution, and technical and process investment in the McAfee Managed Security Program (MSP), helped pave the way,” says DRS CEO Robert Brown.


The MSP investment allows DRS to offer customers a comprehensive range of managed McAfee security offerings as part of its general managed security service or as part of a wider outsourcing offering.


Brown says: “Winning the McAfee Partner of the Year Award in our region highlights our dedication to delivering comprehensive managed security solutions across Africa. Our partnership with McAfee is key to the success of our overall security offering and has enabled us to deliver real value to our clients, and has helped them secure their most valuable information assets.”


DRS scopes, installs, manages and optimises McAfee solutions that allow its customers to integrate security across the business, and align data protection efforts with the overall business goals. “McAfee’s range of products gives us best-in-class protection, agility and visibility, enabling us to do this,” concludes MJ Strydom, DRS’s MD.
