Ping Identity names Versent APAC partner of the year

09 May 18

Ping has named Versent, a Melbourne-headquartered technology, managed services and PaaS provider, “Partner of the Year” for the Asia Pacific market.

Versent received the award based on its commitment to driving new license revenue through customer acquisition, in addition to delivering digital identity innovation among customer organisations.  

“We’re pleased to celebrate Versent’s outstanding achievements with this Partner of the Year award,” says Ping Identity global channel sales director Tommy Butler.

“They set a great example of how partners are leveraging Ping Identity solutions in innovative and progressive ways to drive their own growth, while also supporting Australian business requirements for robust digital identity solutions.

“This award recognises our local partner capability for delivering solutions that enable customers to realise exceptional returns on their Ping Identity investment. We look forward to working closely with our partners in the year ahead, as we continue our focus on establishing high customer satisfaction as a global business standard.”

Last year, Ping Identity also recognised Versent with the “Customer Experience Champion” award based on the company’s work with Service New South Wales and Telstra.

“We’re both humbled and honoured to receive this accolade from Ping Identity,” says Versent CEO and founder Thor Essman.

“From day one, Ping has always shared our core values of customer obsession and integrity, and is committed to supporting our efforts to spread awareness around identity and security best practices that work.”

The Ping Identity Partner Program provides the software, training, support and services that partners need to achieve results in their markets and areas of specialisation.

As part of the ongoing strategy to collaborate with partners and celebrate their accomplishments, it continues to make investments in its programme and partner community.

This year’s Identity Excellence Awards programme features a “Better Together” category, where customers and partners that are working together can submit a nomination as a team - these winners will be announced at Identiverse in June 2018.
