Planet IT has won the UK Mid-Market Sophos Partner of the Year Award, again.

The Milton Park, Oxford, based IT services company retained its crown at the Sophos Partner Conference in Manchester. The award recognises Planet IT’s client delivery, advisory service, expertise and commitment to offering customers next-generation network and endpoint protection.

The annual conference celebrates the successes of Sophos partners throughout the UK. Sophos, which has its HQ in Abingdon, Oxford, is a world leading cyber-security software company.

Sean Smith, director at Planet IT said: “Planet IT provides a best-in-class service to our clients and we ensure we always offer the most up to date and relevant IT consultancy advice. This award is testament to the dedication and delivery of our fantastic team, and we are very proud to a long-standing Sophos partner. Our partnership with Sophos enables us to provide our clients with the very best support and products on the market.”

Gavin Jones, director at Planet IT said: “To have won UK Mid-Market Sophos Partner of the Year for the second year in a row is a great achievement. We are proud to have worked closely with Sophos for more than a decade and achieved Platinum Partner status. A key part of our success has been our team and technical engineers undergoing Sophos training to gain an in-depth knowledge of the products and become fully accredited. It has enabled us to provide expert advice to our clients daily.”

At the 2019 Discover conference members of the Sophos executive leadership team delivered keynote sessions on Sophos strategy, its partner commitments and the broader future of the IT security industry in front of more than 150 attendees.
