Marlow, UK - 10th July 2012 - Trend Micro Incorporated, a global cloud security leader, today announced that it has won a Gold Award at the Global Technology Distribution Council (GTDC) Rising Star Awards in Europe, an accolade awarded to a select group of companies showing significant regional sales growth through the channel.
Trend Micro, the only security vendor awarded the Rising Star Award in Europe this year, received the Gold Award for the €50m - €100m category and was honored among hundreds of manufacturers and publishers who rely on GTDC members to support tech resellers and solution providers in the region.
Gold, Silver and Bronze Rising Star Award winners were selected in five revenue categories based on sales growth in Europe over the past year, as tracked by the CONTEXT SalesWatch Distribution Panel.
David Moss, EMEA Director of Channels at Trend Micro said: “We are very proud to have won this award as it is from a community which is well known for its understanding of markets and Reseller demand.”
“Trend Micro’s commitment to distribution and the channel is very apparent based on the company’s strong overall performance,” commented GTDC CEO Tim Curran. “Their results are particularly impressive given the more challenging economic conditions in Europe.”
“Trend Micro was selected as having the highest percentage growth in revenue through distribution over the last year”, said Jeremy Davies, CEO & co-founder at CONTEXT. "This strong commitment to its channel partners is vital for growth and demonstrates the advantages companies that leverage the power of relationships with the channel can enjoy."
To be eligible for a Rising Star award, vendors must have sold corresponding products through GTDC members in Europe for at least one year. Selections for Gold, Silver and Bronze winners in each revenue category are based on CONTEXT SalesWatch data from April 2011 – March 2012.
