ESET, a renowned global leader in digital security, recently acknowledged outstanding achievements and innovations of its partners during its annual Partner Awards event in Johannesburg. 
The awards aim to recognise and reward excellent performance, resilience, and meaningful contribution towards ESET’s vision of protecting digital progress in Southern Africa.

Our robust cloud value proposition is something that our partners can confidently offer their clients, secure in the knowledge that the strong technical abilities of ESET products continue to endure.”
In addition to being recognised for their outstanding contributions, the awards event served as a celebration of the close-knit relationships between ESET and its South African and Namibian partners. In a gesture of appreciation for this year’s national award winners, they were treated to an exclusive overnight VIP experience at Avianto in Muldersdrift.
