Pine Cove Earns Sophos Partner of the Year Award

For the second time in the last five years, Pine Cove Consulting has earned the award of National Partner of the Year from its cybersecurity partner Sophos. This award is given annually to a single Sophos Partner in the Americas who exhibits outstanding performance and commitment to securing organizations with Sophos' next-generation cybersecurity products and services. Pine Cove Consulting is only the second Sophos partner to have earned this award twice, after earning in for the first time in 2016.

"I am extremely proud of the effort our team puts in every day to secure our clients' assets while accelerating their organizational growth," said Brandon Vancleeve, Pine Cove Consulting president. "This award affirms our commitment to our clients and dedication to implementing industry-leading cybersecurity products and services, at scale, in a region that is typically underserved when it comes to information technology. When you think of IT companies leading the way, you might not think of an organization based in the rural Rocky Mountain Region. We are proud to have proven that narrative wrong and shown again that Pine Cove offers cutting-edge cybersecurity products and services at an elite level."

2020 was certainly a unique year for IT companies and IT professionals. Navigating the sudden transition to a remote workforce proved difficult for many organizations. Pine Cove Consulting assisted many organizations navigating these difficulties and helped them develop confidence in their cybersecurity posture. In 2020, Pine Cove Consulting was a top five Sophos partner in selling cybersecurity products and services to new clients and educational organizations. 

“The shift to remote working has expanded organizations’ attack surfaces, and
cybercriminals are stopping at nothing to penetrate these increasingly virtual
networks. Armed with Sophos’ industry-best cybersecurity solutions and services,
Pine Cove Consulting is securing organizations against these advanced threats,”
said Kendra Krause, Sophos senior vice president of global channels and sales
operations. “Sophos is proud to support and recognize Pine Cove Consulting which is
leading the industry in delivering critical cybersecurity solutions, and we
look forward to their continued success.”
