Dimension Data received nods for partner of the year in both APAC and A/NZ, and MSP partner of the year went to NEC in A/NZ and Trends & Technologies in APAC.
Adam Boreham, McAfee channel director for A/NZ says, "Our partners are incredibly important to McAfee and we’re proud to support them for their great work with these prestigious accolades.”
