About the AT&T Cybersecurity PARTNER OF THE YEAR 2018 Awards


There are eight AT&T Cybersecurity awards annually, only two of which are international. The Growth Partner of the Year went to IT Lab for the highest growth in 2018 compared to 2017 sales. 

“IT Lab delivered more than 800% growth year-over-year leading all others in 2018 by a comfortable margin,” said Mike LaPeters, AT&T Cybersecurity’s VP of Global Channels. “With an eye firmly on value, it’s no surprise their existing customers renew and new customers flock to their services.”

Michael Bateman, IT Lab’s Director of Cyber and Managed Services and company CISO added: “AlienVault – now AT&T Cybersecurity, is a long-standing and respected partner. Their technology supports our Security Operations Centre (SOC) which runs around the clock, safeguarding our clients from cyber-crime.

“We’re thrilled to receive this award. In the last 12 months, our SOC team has on-boarded some excellent clients spanning FTSE 250 companies to financial, professional services and healthcare; all sectors that really worry about their data and security. We have also brought on a number of smaller, mid-market customers in the UK - our flexible approach is helping these businesses to have a more robust posture. The award is a testament to a fantastic team, not only in SOC but across our cyber and managed services.”
