SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Specialty distributor, Securematics, Inc., is pleased to announce it was recognized at its 3rd Annual Vertical Channel Summit in San Diego as a 2017 Distributor of the Year by premiere vendor partner Juniper Networks, the industry leader in network innovation. The 2017 award marks the third time Securematics has earned an Americas Distributor of the Year award for its proven ability to add value for Juniper Networks in the areas of sales leadership and next-generation marketing methodologies, as well as customer service excellence and in-depth expertise in networking and security. During the annual partner-vendor conference, Juniper Networks applauded Securematics as a key contributor to its continued business leadership and resurgence in security leadership in 2018.
"Juniper Networks is proud to be able to recognize partners who use creative marketing and emerging security practices to craft one-of-a-kind, effective go-to-market strategies," said Christian Alvarez, America's Channel Leader at Juniper Networks. "Securematics understands Juniper's innovative goals and we look forward to continuing our partnership in 2018."
During 2017, Securematics made digital marketing programs a key focus area in its quest to expand Juniper's security awareness and partner mindshare. At the same time, the specialty distributor emphasized partner enablement and training as a key driver of new business and competitive breakthrough. Leveraging alliances with specialized Juniper-ecosystem vendors and the expertise of Juniper's sales engineering team, Securematics created innovative and compelling enablement and training initiatives to develop new and existing channel partners. This included the Enhanced Try and Buy program, as well as a series of one-day, hands-on security seminars designed specifically for sales engineers and network administrators.
Capping off the end of the year was the completion of a highly successful partnership between Securematics, Juniper Networks and the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus, during which Juniper outfitted the bus with networking and security technologies and updated communication platforms. This partnership helped continue the work of providing youth in the United States with opportunities to participate in songwriting and multimedia workshops, while also positioning Juniper front and center with valuable educational end users.
