OGL Computer has been announced as the winner of the Most Certified Reseller of 2017 at Kaspersky’s Annual Summit at the British Library in London.
The prestigious award went to the Worcestershire-based business for their extensive knowledge within the industry and consistently offering their customers valued advice and support when it comes to their IT security. Having delivered a range of IT security solutions for many years, OGL launched CyberGuard Technologies in 2017, an independent trading Division focused on tackling cyber-crime. With cyber-attacks now a regular occurrence, OGL knew they needed to invest heavily in a dedicated resource to benefit their customers. They were recognised for their services and won the award at Kaspersky’s 2018 UK Partner Awards, which brought together its industry partners to discuss the latest in cyber security trends and market opportunities for channel partners.
OGL’s Marketing Manager, Cindy Phillips, said: “It’s a great honour to be awarded the Most Certified Reseller of the year. Working in an ever-changing industry, it’s important to ensure our engineers and sales consultants are always kept up-to-date with the latest knowledge and accreditations. We’ve invested heavily in training our staff to not only comply with industry regulations, but to ensure we offer the correct advice on the best security practises to help keep our customers cyber-secure. Our customers expect high standards from OGL and CyberGuard, and we pride ourselves on delivering the best IT solutions and cyber security, offering products and services that our customers can trust.”
Russ Madley, Head of Channel for Kaspersky Lab UK and Ireland, said: “It’s been a tough time for resellers as a slump in channel profits, blamed mainly on Brexit aftershocks and currency fluctuations, has affected the UK’s top 100 resellers – with average operating profit margins sinking from 4.4% to 3.4%. Despite this, there was 54% revenue growth in Q3 2017 in B2B sales, thanks to the dedication and hard work of our valued channel partners, so we’re delighted to be able to formally recognise our top performers.”
