After a challenging year across the world, it has been an incredible experience to see how our partners were able to work, supporting their customers, critical infrastructure projects and much more. As focus shifted to ensuring customers were able to continue their security journey, Barracuda partners led from the front and it has been inspiring to see the outcomes they were able to drive, helping customers rapidly shift to remote work, ensuring application and network security was robust during rapid shifts in working practices and much more.
Celebrating the success of our partners is always an honour for me personally, and this year, despite not being able to celebrate together in person, we made sure that we did celebrate the success of our top performing partners across the EMEA region.
The Barracuda EMEA Partner Awards this year really demonstrate some incredible success that was achieved in a difficult year. Recognising Barracuda partners that surpassed business expectations and demonstrated meticulous dedication to securing their customers journey throughout the last year was inspiring, as we reviewed the incredibly high calibre of nominations that we received.
As with every year, it was exceptionally difficult to pick the winner in each category, this year the categories ranged from Email protection Partner of the Year, Data Protection Partner of the Year through to Regional Awards and of course our Rising Star Awards for newer partners in the Barracuda family that have demonstrated incredible commitment and investment to grow their business together with us.
I am delighted to share the list of winners, all who deserve this recognition and thanks for the amazing work achieved over the last year.
