CAMPBELL, Calif., March 4, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ForeScout Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of continuous monitoring and mitigation solutions for Global 2000 enterprises and government organizations, today announced that Accuvant, the leading provider of information security services and solutions serving enterprise-class organizations across North America, is the recipient of the ForeScout 2014 U.S. Channel Partner of the Year award. The award recognizes exceptional channel partner sales and service performance in each region.
ForeScout chose Accuvant for being the highest revenue-producing partner in the commercial space in North America in 2014. Over the past year, the company's sales grew dramatically, resulting in an almost 300 percent increase over the previous year due to a number of significant sales into large enterprises.
"By combining Accuvant's information security consulting and technology expertise and services with products from leading manufacturers such as ForeScout, we are able to provide clients with holistic solutions that help address the increasingly complex threat landscape," said Andy Welsh, Accuvant's vice president of Partner Management. "We are honored to be named ForeScout Channel Partner of the Year – it serves as a testament to our success and leadership in helping enterprise organizations with their toughest security challenges."
"ForeScout has enjoyed a very successful 2014, but we could not have achieved this level of success without the commitment and tenacity of our channel partners in the U.S. and worldwide," said Brant Kennedy, executive vice president of Worldwide Sales at ForeScout. "Because of this, we are pleased to confer the U.S. Channel Partner of the Year award on Accuvant, as they were able to help us establish a stronger foothold within the large enterprise and have epitomized the word 'partner' by becoming a natural extension of our business."
