Thu, 22nd Feb 2024

Infinigate, an EMEA Value Added Distributor (VAD) emphasising cybersecurity, secure networks, and secure cloud, has taken top honours as the Riverbed Global Distributor of the Year Award winner. The prestigious award was presented during the 2024 Riverbed Partner Kickoff. The awards celebrate partners' excellence in performance, innovation, and implementation of Riverbed's industry-leading Unified Observability and Acceleration portfolios.

Located in Rotkreuz, Switzerland, Infinigate is proud of its long-standing and fruitful relationship with Riverbed. The firms are aligned in their business values and priorities, forging a strong partnership over the years. The award is a testament to the ongoing success with Riverbed and a reflection of the compelling levels of customer satisfaction they have achieved through their cooperation.

“We are honoured to receive the Global Distributor of the Year award and we thank the Infinigate teams involved, as well as our partners and Riverbed for their ongoing support and close collaboration," Chris Field, Business Manager at Infinigate, comments.

"Our partnership continues to grow, and we are excited about the growth opportunities ahead of us, with new initiatives and services in the pipeline already.”

Riverbed's Senior Vice President, Global Partners and Alliances, Alex Thurber, echoed this sentiment. “We proudly recognise Infinigate for their achievements as a trusted Riverbed partner and the value they bring to our partner community,” he said.

“The Riverbed Partner of the Year Awards honor the success of partners providing Unified Observability and Acceleration enterprise solutions to help organisations deliver exceptional digital experiences and performance for mutual customers.”

Through the collective richness of telemetry from network to app to end user, alongside AI capabilities and acceleration, Riverbed enables its partners to offer enterprise solutions that deliver tangible benefits and results for their customers. Riverbed's partner ecosystem is not only profitable for the partner but also brings significant customer benefits.

The Riverbed Partner Awards, which recognise partners making a significant impact on a global and regional basis, saw partners nominated and analysed by a panel consisting of members from Riverbed's sales and executive leadership team. This declaration confirms Infinigate's established position in the global market for cybersecurity, secure networks, and secure cloud services while further enhancing their reputation within the industry.

The Infinigate Group is an EMEA cybersecurity powerhouse covering over 100 countries. The company has a 15-year double-digit growth record; in fiscal year 2022/23, its revenue was 2.2 billion Euros.

"Our focus and deep technical expertise on cybersecurity, secure networks and secure cloud for SMB and enterprise set us apart," the company says.

"Our 1,250 employees provide locally tailored services complementing a robust central supply chain, sparking growth for our partners, MSSPs and vendors."

In 2022, Starlink, Vuzion (now Infinigate Cloud) and Nuvias became part of the Infinigate Group.
