F-Secure Wins Synaxon’s Vendor of the Year Award

Special recognition award is a testament to F-Secure’s commitment to the channel.

Buckinghamshire, UK – 30th June 2017: F-Secure has won the Vendor of the Year award at the Synaxon UK National Conference 2017. The award is one of Synaxon’s special recognition awards and is presented to the vendor which has demonstrated the most commitment and been the most proactive over the last 12 months.


Synaxon is one of the UK’s premier channel services dealer group and the two companies have been partnering since 2016. The partnership enables Synaxon to offer F-Secure’s full system, endpoint and network protection suites, as well as management and control and cyber security solutions. The partnership also covers the highly-rated Freedome VPN solution, which is ideal for customers that want to make sure remote workers are always securely connected and that communications stay private. All F-Secure solutions are available to order via Synaxon’s EGIS procurement platform, either boxed or for electronic software download.


With its unique approach to protection, F-Secure offers resellers clear market differentiation. Mike Barron, channel director at Synaxon UK, said: “We have been working with F-Secure in the UK for around 18 months and, in that time, I have got to know all of the F-Secure team really well. Its commitment to Synaxon UK is second-to-none and the resource we have access to is vast.  Now that F-Secure’s products can be purchased directly from EGIS, it is even easier for our members to purchase and provision.”


Olli Bliss, head of partner sales at F-Secure, commented: “At F-Secure, our product offering is underpinned by a strong commitment to the channel. Our partnership with Synaxon is relatively new, but very important for F-Secure’s market development, so we are all the more pleased to receive this early endorsement. We look forward to making the relationship even stronger.”
