COPENHAGEN, DEMARK, JUNE 17, — F5 Networks (NASDAQ: FFIV) announced today its 2014 Agility Partner Awards for the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region.  Presented at F5’s Agility customer and partner conference in Copenhagen, the awards recognise F5 partners from across the EMEA region that have excelled in delivering the benefits of F5’s Synthesis architectural framework to customers as they seek to redefine application delivery in the face of challenges around mobility, security, cloud and SDN.


  • Orange Business Services (France) — Outstanding performance in several areas, particularly in driving F5 security solutions to customers as well as demonstrating the benefits of the F5 platform integrated alongside key partner vendors such as Microsoft and Cisco
  • Exclusive Networks Middle East — Drove to new levels an already very profitable partnership with F5 over the course of 2014, embracing the full product suite and driving joint business to new countries across the Middle East
  • Additional winners — Aditinet, Arrow Electronic, Inc., Belgacom, Computacenter UK, IBS, SecureData and Westcon Germany also received Agility Partner Awards for standout performance in 2014


“F5’s success in the last 12 months – and indeed since the UNITY partner programme was introduced - was built on the back of a very strong partner community.  While F5 is constantly striving to satisfy customer needs around application delivery and to simplify and streamline how we interact with our partners, an essential element of success is the work we do in partnership with our incredibly talented and dedicated UNITY partners. We would like to thank and congratulate all of them, especially our Agility Partner Award winners.”
