(LAS VEGAS, NV/ REGINA, SK)
Information Technology Security Firm rSolutions was honoured last night with the Americas Rookie Partner of the Year award at Splunk’s Global Partner Summit at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. This award puts rSolutions among the elite Splunk Partners in North America and around the world.
rSolutions was founded in 2010 with a vision to do business differently, with a greater focus on customer care. As business grew, they soon came to realize that all organizational data was relevant to IT security and operational intelligence. In 2011, rSolutions became one of a few vendors world-wide to carry Splunk (NASDAQ: SPLK) which is now the world’s leading Big Data Analytics and Machine Learning platform, utilized by over 80% of the Fortune 100.
Since 2011, rSolutions has building their strategic partnership with Splunk and is now the leading Splunk Elite Partner in Canada providing Splunk licensing, Professional Services, and Splunk Managed Services. rSolutions commitment and involvement with Splunk includes a seat on Splunk’s Technical Advisory Council, as well as the Splunk North America Partner Advisory Council. With staff in three provinces, rSolutions services clients from across North America.
Richard Baker is an MBA graduate of the Levene School of Business from the University of Regina and holds numerous security and vendor designations as the CEO of rSolutions. “Being honoured with an award from the leadership of Splunk is really special for us personally at rSolutions, but also for Information Security community, which is growing and prosperous.” Richard said. rSolutions’ international recognition illustrates that Saskatchewan’s technology sector is of international calibre and that companies from here can do business around the world.
“The award is nice, anytime you get acknowledged by your peers and partners it’s a good feeling, but it’s also personally validating – when we partnered with Splunk, I knew it was game-changing technology, but the way they innovate and change is really what keeps them, and by extension us at rSolutions, ahead of the competition.” Richard said.
Although rSolutions has been working with Splunk for many years, posting one of the world’s largest Splunk sales and continued excellence in implementation made rSolutions the clear choice for the award for what Splunk leadership called a ‘truly breakout year’.
