Sourced Group, a global IT consulting firm, walked home with some impressive hardware in Toronto recently after winning Palo Alto Networks’ Asia Pacific Cloud Partner of the Year award for 2018.

The Global Partner of the Year Awards, according to Palo Alto Networks, recognize partners who have demonstrated their commitment to helping customers “meet their most challenging security needs with the Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform.”

Sourced, which has offices in Toronto, Sydney and Singapore, specializes in organization-wide cloud transformation and DevOps in the financial services, aviation, healthcare and telecommunication sectors. But it’s also the company’s proven managed services and trusted design patterns, which have helped many organizations adopt cloud at scale, that ultimately put Sourced on top, according to Karl Soderlund, senior vice-president of worldwide channels for Palo Alto Networks.

“We are proud to recognize them for delivering valuable business outcomes, and guiding customers in their digital transformation,” said Soderlund.

Salma Datenis, managing director of Sourced Group Australia, said their company’s “robust” approach to securing cloud at scale for enterprise customers has been key to their success.

“It’s great to have found a strong alignment with Palo Alto Networks in how we seek to deliver solutions to our shared client base,” she said.
