Tenable has been recognised as Vendor of the Year in the Networking - Security Divisional Award from Ingram Micro.

The annual awards recognise dozens of technology providers for their outstanding engagement and work ethic, and unwavering commitment to grow more profitably together.

"Our successful working relationship with Ingram Micro is very important to delivering on our Cyber Exposure vision helping joint customers around the world see everything, predict what matters and act to reduce risk," says Mark Thurmond, chief operating officer, Tenable.

"We are honoured to have been chosen as Vendor of the Year and we look forward to our continued strategic alliance with Ingram Micro," he says.

Thurmond says Tenable's investment in and commitment to the channel community is fundamental to its global go-to-market strategy.

"The Tenable Assure Partner Programme pairs the company's industry-leading risk-based vulnerability management solutions with world-class distributors, resellers and managed security service providers (MSSPs) to help joint customers secure their highly dynamic IT and OT environments," he explains.

"As Tenable extends its position as a category-leading cybersecurity company, strategic channel partnerships like those with Ingram Micro will remain a top priority."

Ingram Micro evaluated vendors across more than two dozen high-profile technology categories including cloud, business and consumer technology, advanced solutions and global markets. The winning partners were chosen based on a variety of criteria and key performance indicators, including collaboration, marketing and sales.

"Minimising risk and maximising productivity remains top of mind for every business of any size," says Eric Kohl, vice president, U.S. Advanced Solutions, Ingram Micro.

"Tenable has consistently leveraged the power of Ingram Micros Security Business Unit to become today's fastest-growing, channel-friendly, Cyber Exposure vendor," he says.

"We are thrilled to serve as Tenable's go-to-market partner and celebrate their success as an Ingram Micro Vendor of the Year."

Last month, Tenable unveiled updates to its partner programme, Tenable Assure, including an all-new certification programme, expanded service choices and a revamped partner portal.

The updates further support and solidify Tenable's steadfast commitment to the channel, while bringing risk-based vulnerability management to joint customers around the world, the company says.

"The updates to our Tenable Assure programme underpin our ongoing commitment to and trust in our partners," says Thurmond.

"We are continuously investing in the channel to equip our partners with the training, certification and collaboration necessary to deliver Tenable's industry-leading vulnerability management solutions and custom services to customers everywhere," he says.
