Trend Micro Promotes Innov8 to Gold Partner Status For Renewed Healthcare Drive

Expanded partnership will help both companies add even more value for healthcare customers 


London, 16th March 2015 - Trend Micro is thrilled to announce the elevation of rising star Innov8 to Gold Partner status, offering great opportunities for both companies to cement and grow their respective healthcare businesses whilst adding value in this burgeoning IT sector.
Innov8 is a multiple award winning reseller providing enterprise-grade VDI and dedicated cloud platforms alongside managed and professional services and consulting for the fast-growing healthcare sector.

As a key partner, Trend Micro provides a comprehensive range of virtual and cloud aware security products and services designed to protect healthcare organisations from all major known and zero-day threats without impeding the performance of key systems or staff productivity.

“Gold Partner level is reserved for a select number of resellers who are committed to working with us to deliver significant revenue and technical value add ”, said James Munroe, Channel Sales Manager, UK & Ireland at Trend Micro. “Innov8 have demonstrated fantastic growth both commercially and technically in the last 12 months, securing a number of flagship NHS customers and this is one of the key reasons they were awarded gold status.”

Innov8 will benefit from quarterly marketing activities, support for partner events, exposure to key customer executives, and invitation to Trend Micro’s global partner summit and partner advisor council – all of which will help to boost sales and marketing efforts.

‘We are proud to be one of the fastest growing Trend Micro Gold Partners and to be the only partner exclusively focused on assisting public sector organisations to deploy the breadth of Trend Micro’s solutions across end user computing; server, network and desktop virtualisation; management tools and public/hybrid/private cloud”, said Mike Fitzgerald, Innov8’s CTO. “Our partnership is testament to our commitment to leveraging truly ‘best of breed technologies’ to transform enterprise and public sector delivery.”

As a Gold Partner, the firm will also get deal protection; bigger deal registration, upfront and renewal discounts; more incentive programs; and eligibility for a marketing development fund.
Trend Micro officially launched a Global Partner Program in June 2014 with a mission to share the best elements from regional programmes with our 50,000+ partners around the world.
