This summer, Entrust Datacard hosted the first-ever Global Partner Conference in London to honor our FY18 Partners of the Year, who are trained and authorized to sell and support Entrust Datacard solutions across the world. With more than 200 owners, principals and top sales leaders from our global partner organizations in attendance, the conference also provided up-to-date information on market trends, new technologies and our solutions.

The FY18 Partner of the Year Awards presented at the conference weren’t just for attendees ‒ we evaluated more than 730 partners from 150 countries across all segments of our business. The winners were determined based on their FY18 performance in a number of categories, including innovation, disruption, forecasting, and growth. We’re very proud of all of our partners and would like to thank each of them for being a vital part of Entrust Datacard’s growth and success.
