North East Managed IT Services provider TruStack has been named Arctic Wolf’s EMEA Partner of the Year for 2022, only a year after partnering with the technology giant.

TruStack began working with Arctic Wolf in July 2021, and was named the organisation’s partner of the quarter for August to October 2021.

News of its being named EMEA (Europe, Middle East & Africa) Partner of the Year was greeted with delight by one of TruStack’s directors, Phil Cambers.

Mr Cambers, Commercial Director at the Cramlington-based business, said: “This is an absolutely huge moment for us at TruStack – to say we are proud to be named partner of the year is an understatement.

“Arctic Wolf has a thriving  partner community across Europe, the Middle East and Africa so to be named partner of the year for the entire region is a huge achievement for the business.

“The recipe for success when it comes to partnerships is for both sets of people to get on and understand one another, and for there to be a market for the product or service you are offering. In this case, all these ingredients have been present and have led to a successful partnership between TruStack and Arctic Wolf.”

Managed IT Services provider TruStack, based in Cramlington, Northumberland, was formed following the merger of three companies in 2019, and has grown rapidly despite the Covid-19 pandemic – its workforce has increased 30% percent from 43 to 55, and has around 450 active clients.

It specialises in cloud management, infrastructure, security, unified communications and agile working solutions – it has helped hundreds of businesses implement an agile working model since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The EMEA Partner of the Year award recognises TruStack’s commitment to improving its customers’ cybersecurity posture through a strategic partnership with Arctic Wolf that focuses on joint business growth and planning, engagement and training, demand generation, and executive and security practice alignment.
