BUI Wins Top Security Award 6 Years Running! David Maskell and Ryan Roseveare had the honour to represent BUI at the annual Microsoft Partner Summit. The premier event for Microsoft partners was, as usual, a spectacular event. Microsoft goes all out to ensure that the partners, after a year's hard work, get rewarded with a great event which this year was held at the Durban International Conference Centre. This event also included opening and closing keynotes featuring esteemed speakers such as Tony Leon(Ex. DP Leader) and Steven Attenborough (Virgin Galactic).
A good time was had by all, but the main part of the event is the Partner Awards Dinner which was scheduled for the evening of the 7th of August. This year's spectacle was no let down, with acts such as Freshly Ground entertaining the attendees.
However, the awards ceremony was the highlight of the event.
Through stringent judging criteria, BUI were named as finalists in the following categories:
- Advanced Infrastructure Solutions
- Networking Solutions
- Security Solutions
BUI was then awarded with the Microsoft Security Competency Partner of the Year 2008 for the third year running! David Maskell went to receive the award which was handed over by Fernando da Souza, Acting Managing Director of Microsoft SA and Dr Cheick Diarra, Chairman of Microsoft Africa.
"Our customers are the real winners; to be among the select list of finalists in these three major categories is a tribute to our staff and attests to BUI's impact in the Microsoft space." says Ryan Roseveare, Managing Director, BUI.
"Winning the Microsoft Security Competency Award for three years running, shows BUI's dedication, focus and strength in the Microsoft Security arena. We look forward to growing this area of our business through the continued strength of our Microsoft security portfolio with close alignment to Microsoft's Security Business Strategy." says David Maskell, Director of Security, BUI.
BUI is proud to have won this award in 2006, 2007 and now again in 2008. Without the help of its loyal customers and Microsoft themselves, this award would not have been possible.
