Newgen, Ikara winners at ExtraHop partner awards

22 Aug 17

Newgen and Ikara have taken out key awards at ExtraHop’s partner awards.

Newgen was named ExtraHop’s Top Partner of the Year for 2016, while Ikara, which signed a reseller partnership with the vendor last year, won Best Proof of Concept Partner.

The companies received their awards at ExtraHop’s first annual Asia Pacific partner conference, ExtraHop Engage, held in Macau recently.

The partner conference follows recent moves from the real-time analytics provider to double down on its efforts in Asia Pacific on the back of rapid sales growth.

Late last year the company announced it had surpassed 2016 sales goals for the region in just eight months.

ExtraHop signed a major reseller with Exclusive Networks last year as part of its expanded efforts in the region. The year also saw the vendor expand into new geographies including Southeast Asia and South Korea.

ExtraHop Engage brought together partners from Australia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand to discuss the benefits of network analytics and machine learning for improving IT performance, strengthening security and driving business alignment.
