March 4, 2021 — Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. announced its IT Services Division, All Covered has been named as one of nine partner businesses receiving honors in 11 categories of the Channel Partners Excellence in Digital Services Awards. All Covered received the White Hat Award for protecting customers from cyberthreats, which also includes physical security, such as video-surveillance projects.
Introduced in 2019, the Excellence in Digital Service Awards recognize partners who deliver stellar business outcomes for their clients. Recognition is provided in ten categories, with an additional award presented for special achievement among all applicants. Candidates submitted case studies of projects they had completed in the previous year. Submissions were judged by the Channel Partners editorial staff, members of the Channel Partners Advisory Board and outside advisers.
All Covered’s submission showcased its efforts to help JM Associates Federal Credit Union (JMAFCU) take a big step forward with its cybersecurity position, which included a full security assessment, deployed its security information and event management solution (SIEM), and provided 24/7 monitoring of its network. JMAFCU is a full-service, federally chartered credit union that serves associates of its SEG and family members in all 50 states and abroad.
“We are extremely honored to be recognized by Channel Partners for our efforts in cybersecurity,” said Patrick H. Whelan, National Practice Director – Finance, All Covered. “Our IT engineers are well versed in the nuances and regulations of many market segments, including finance, allowing us to provide customized solutions that meet our clients’ business and application needs. We are proud of our work helping customers like JMAFCU successfully maintain regulatory compliance and implement security measures to mitigate cyber threats.”
The Excellence in Digital Service Awards are open only to channel partners — agents, VARs, dealers, SIs, MSPs, consultants and other partner firms. Other categories include Brand Builder, Cloud Builder, Consultant of the Year, Digital Docent, Master of Disaster, Next-Gen Telecom Award, Purveyor of Productivity, Visionary Award and Walk the Talk. A special award, Digi Master, recognizes the partner entry that exhibited maximum digital transformation brilliance. Full details on each category are available on the Channel Partners website.
“There is no higher honor in the industry than to be recognized as an innovator,” said Bobby DeMarzo, vice president of content, Informa Tech Channels Group. “Innovation is the lifeblood of the technology marketplace, so for an organization’s work in piecing together complex solutions to be called out puts them head and shoulder above the competition and in high regard by their customers. This honor recognizes the hard work it takes to apply technology to make business better. That’s why the Channel Partners Excellence in Digital Services Awards are so coveted in this industry: They represent actual, documented projects that our audience, with the help of their strategic partners, brings to customers.”
"2020 was an extremely difficult year, and these nine winners not only rose to the challenge, they went above and beyond,” said Craig Galbraith, editorial director of Channel Partners and Channel Futures. “We are pleased to honor them. The entire Channel Partners and Channel Futures team, as well as our guest judges, congratulate our 2021 Excellence in Digital Service award winners.”
