Oxford Computer Group (OCG) has been named as a Microsoft Partner of the Year for the second year in succession.
Selected from more than 2,800 entrants from 117 different countries, the company prevailed in the Identity and Security (Access) category.
Founded in 1983, Oxford Computer Group specialises in helping organisations stay in control of their technology and protect their digital identity.
The company’s managing director Neil Coughlan (pictured) praised his award-winning team in light of the announcement.
“The OCG team has worked very hard for this and I’m delighted that their efforts have been recognised,” he said. “This is the sixth time we have won. The expertise of our IT technicians means we can help untangle organisations’ IT systems and either rebuild or reimagine them for this new world of cloud computing and mobile devices.”
The proliferation of mobile devices, smartphones and tablets creates a flexible and responsive workforce, but also poses security challenges and presents new difficulties for company IT departments.
“They need to be vigilant about network security especially when people are allowed to use their own devices and tablets in the workplace,” explained Coughlan. “OCG has come a long, long way in the past 31 years, always at the forefront of IT developments. This award acknowledges that.”
“This year’s award winners were among some of the best and brightest our partner ecosystem has to offer, so it came as no surprise that Oxford Computer Group was included in that group as this year’s Oxford Computer Group of the 2014 Microsoft Identity and Security (Access) award,” said Phil Sorgen, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group, Microsoft. “We congratulate Oxford Computer Group on this amazing achievement and its continued dedication to providing innovative solutions that drive results for our mutual customers.”
