Envoy Data Systems, T-Systems, S21SEC, and Bring IT receive awards
Zug/Switzerland, 17 December 2021 – Swiss company Lucy Security, one of the largest providers of cybersecurity awareness trainings with over 11,000 installations worldwide and over 25 million trained users, has honored several partners in different categories with the 2021 LUCY Partner Awards.
Envoy Data Systems: Partner of the Year North America
For the second year in a row, LUCY Security honored Envoy Data Systems with the “Partner of the Year North America” award. The company proved once again that they simply fit to Lucy. The active support to enter the US market, in the fields of engineering, marketing, and sales support, impressed the jury and made the selection easy. Jeff Ciraulo from Envoy Data Systems comments: “Envoy Data Systems is proud to be recognized as LUCY Security’s North American Channel Partner of the Year for 2021. As North America’s leading, full-service Value Added Distributor specializing in the IT security market, we take great pride in the strength of our vendor relationships. LUCY Security has worked closely with Envoy’s sales, marketing, and technical teams to bring their innovative Security Awareness solution to Envoy’s extensive North American network of System Integrators, VARs, and MSSPs. With its highly-customizable, modular design and exceptional value for money, LUCY Security’s product has been a major success in the Envoy Data portfolio, and a stand-out growth product during the last, challenging, year. We look forward to continuing this successful partnership in 2022.”
T-Systems: Global Innovation LUCY Partner of the Year
The 2021 award for the “Global and Innovation LUCY Partner of the Year” goes to T-Systems. “We are very pleased that a fruitful and successful partnership has emerged with T-Systems. The “T-Systems Alpine” division made a notable contribution to the development, placing the issue of employee awareness on the market with the necessary care and enthusiasm and showing us that even large system houses can be very innovative,” says Palo Stacho, LUCY Co-Founder.
Bring IT: Europe Partner of the Year
For the second time in a row, Bring IT from Istanbul won the “Partner of the Year Europe” award. LUCY is impressed by the consistency and the ability that Bring IT continues to act as a very successful figurehead for LUCY products despite the difficult economic environment, “Especially in these economically difficult times in Turkey, our success is also due to the product LUCY Awareness, which in our eyes is simply the best solution on the market”, comments Nebi Gurbanli from Bring IT.
Rookie Partner: S21SEC
Above all, it was the vigor that impressed us at S21SEC. The Spanish 360 ° MSSP provider with its own SOCs and with various branches in Europe and Mexico set up a very impressive sales pipeline shortly after the partner contract was signed. In this way, a partnership is fun and that’s why we are happy that the LUCY Security Rookie Award goes to Orcoyen near Pamplona!
LUCY’s partner base almost doubles within one year
“The importance of utilizing cybersecurity awareness trainings for companies continues to grow. We have clearly felt this in the last year. At the end of 2021, we have more than 100 active partners worldwide, while we counted around 60 partners at the end of 2020,” says Palo Stacho, Co-founder and Head of Operations at Lucy Security. “More and more companies are providing targeted training to their employees to make them aware of best IT security practices. In most cyber attacks, the criminals focus on exploiting people, because many successful attacks start with a social engineering trick known as phishing. Only a trained employee can react adequately to such attacks. Therefore, it is our goal to further expand our partner program in order to be able to train even more employees on security awareness.”
