Sirius, a CDW company, is proud to announce its selection by F5 as Transformation Partner of the Year, North America for 2021. F5 presents this annual award to the partner that best exemplifies alignment with F5’s strategies and success in driving new business through collaboration.

Sirius received this prestigious recognition based on performance throughout the year as a catalyst to growth. Sirius’ early adoption of F5 strategies and solutions, investment in early access to resources and role as change agent were instrumental in this selection.

“Sirius has transformed their business with F5 in many unique ways. In addition to building a cloud workload migration campaign with AWS, they also collaborated with Red Hat to drive joint automation with F5— proactively driving exploratory discussions with targeted customers who might be open to enterprise licensing consumption models. Through the uncertainty of the last two years, Sirius’ commitment was unwavering as they executed these transformational activities with F5,” said Jeff Hilliard, RVP of North America Channel Sales.

Deborah Bannworth, Sirius SVP, Partner Alliances, Inside Sales, Maintenance Sales & Service, echoes these sentiments, expressing her appreciation for F5’s support and collaboration. “This award serves as a tribute to the dedicated efforts of the F5 and Sirius teams to proactively engage with clients and to deliver cloud services that improve security, scalability, automation, and availability of containerized applications in an enterprise environment. We are honored to receive this recognition and look forward to seeing the success that 2022 will bring both organizations.”
