Amazon Web Services (AWS) has recognised its top performing partners in the ASEAN region, with Horangi, Deloitte, NCS, Cloud Comrade and ICS Compute among those lauded with regional awards.
The latest round of AWS Partner Awards winners named as part of the cloud vendor’s rolling awards program, which runs throughout the year, includes more than 10 partners in the ASEAN region, along with partners in Canada, Mexico, Brazil and a handful of other markets across the Americas.
Locally, four partners were named as ASEAN award winners, with Singapore cyber security provider Horangi being named AWS ISV [independent software vendor] Partner of the Year in the region.
According to AWS, Horangi’s Warden cloud security platform protects organisations in the public cloud, and is complemented by an elite team of cyber security experts providing CREST-accredited offensive and strategic cybersecurity services to customers across the world.
Cyber security vendor Trend Micro, meanwhile, was named AWS Global ISV Partner of the Year for the region, with consulting giant Deloitte taking home the AWS Global SI Partner of the Year award.
“We are delighted to be the recipient of this esteemed award," said Angeline Leong, Deloitte Consulting enterprise technology and performance leader for Southeast Asia and Asia Pacific. “Receiving this award reaffirms the confidence clients have in working with Deloitte and it is a clear testament to Deloitte’s commitment to scale our cloud offering to deliver innovative solutions and value outcomes for our clients.”
At the same time, National Telecom, the state-owned company that runs Thailand’s international telecommunications infrastructure, won AWS New Market Public Sector Partner of the Year for ASEAN.
National Telecom oversees Thailand’s international telco gateways, satellite, and submarine cable network connections. It also provides data communications and applications services, such as leased line, fiber-to-the-premises, gigabit ethernet and more.
In 2021, CAT Telecom became National Telecom Public Company Limited after a merger with TOT Public Company Limited, according to AWS.
Technology services firm NCS won the AWS Public Sector Partner of the Year award for the Singapore market, with Singapore-based cloud computing consultancy firm Cloud Comrade being named AWS Consulting Partner of the Year in the country.
"We are honored and grateful for the recognition by AWS once again,” said Andy Waroma, Cloud Comrade co-founder and co-managing director. “We are optimistic that our success in Singapore and the growth across key ASEAN markets during the universally challenging time last year will be a good springboard for impacting more clients."
