ProtectWise established an all-channel model in mid 2016. Since then, we’ve seen strong market traction with all of our strategic partnerships. To honor some of our standouts, ProtectWise has newly established a Partner Of The Year Award. I am pleased to name GuidePoint Security as our inaugural honoree for excellence in 2016.

As an early adopter of The ProtectWise GridTM and an anchor in the ProtectWise Partner Community, GuidePoint follows a philosophy of embracing new technologies. The company delivers both security technologies and professional services designed help clients recognize the threats, understand the solutions, and mitigate the risks present in their evolving IT environments.

Founded in 2011, GuidePoint has quickly built momentum as a cybersecurity solution provider of choice for government and commercial entities across the United States. The the company was named among the region’s 50 fastest growing businesses by The Washington Business Journal, and it received a GovStar award from Washington SmartCEO for demonstrating excellence in government contracting. GuidePoint continues to gain national prominence, earning spot number 308 on the Inc. 5000 list.

GuidePoint led the way in 2016 closing significant new business and entered 2017 with the largest pipeline in the ProtectWise Enlightened Partner program. GuidePoint has also driven the most partner-initiated deals of any partner in the program. We applaud GuidePoint as our 2016 Partner Of The Year and look forward to seeing this early success continue across all our partners.
