GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan (March 13, 2008) ITS Partners was named Altiris' "Platinum Partner of the Year" for 2007 at the APEX conference in San Diego, CA. The Altiris Solutions Partners in Excellence (APEX) conference is an annual event reserved for the world's top performing Altiris Solutions Business Partners. Wade Wyant, Managing Partner for ITS, accepted the award on behalf of ITS. Mr. Wyant said, "This is a testament to all of the hard work and dedication from all the employees of ITS. We have a great team of people from administration, operations, marketing and the road warriors themselves, the ITS Altiris Certified Engineers that deliver time and time again for our clients."
"ITS has demonstrated the ability to sell Symantec's product portfolio and deliver on the market convergence of security and availability to help customers achieve confidence in a connected world," said Julie Parrish, vice president, Global Channel Office, Symantec. "We are pleased to recognize ITS for its innovation and depth of expertise as a Symantec partner over the past year and we look forward to their continued success in 2008."
"It's an honor to be named Platinum Partner of the Year now for the second time in three years. We knew that with Symantec's acquisition of Altiris last April that we were eventually going to be part of a much bigger partner community and this is the time to work harder and smarter than we ever have before." said Chuck Hegarty, VP of Business Development & Alliances for ITS. "Now as a Symantec Platinum Partner, ITS is positioned very well to take advantage of what we think is an unbeatable Endpoint Security and Management solution. One solution. One company. One that works!"
ITS attributes its success in 2007 to great relationships with the Symantec & Altiris Business Unit field sales and engineering teams, as well as other Alliance and Large Account Reseller Partners. Their philosophy is that in many cases it makes sense to team with the other Alliance and LAR Partners to bring the absolute best design, procurement vehicle and implementation process to the client.
