We’re reaching the end of 2018 which has been a fantastic year filled with incentives, awards and contests for ESET and Ingram Micro. ESET has worked hard to become one of the leading cybersecurity solutions for businesses, not only throughout Canada but also on a global scale. Here is a recap of all of our exciting collaborations and a sneak peek of what is to come in the New Year.
First off, within the SMB Alliance program, was the ESET Cup incentive, which ran from April 2nd to August 31st of 2018. Resellers earned points by placing first orders with ESET through Ingram Micro, completing ESET’s sales certifications, placing $1,000 ESET purchases through Ingram Micro, attending ESET/Ingram Micro Webinars and signing up for ESET’s partner communications. There were five bonus monthly winners during the incentive period and each won $500 Ingram Micro credit and received a pair of tickets to the prestigious Rogers Cup professional tennis tournament in Toronto & Montreal. The monthly winners were as follows:
- April: NCFRE Technologies Inc.
- May: MIT Consulting
- June: Microtek Computer Services
- July: NE Networks Engineers Inc.
- August: Microtek Computer Services
The overall winners at the ESET Cup were Microtek Computer Services who came in first place with an incredible 71 total points and won $1,500 in Ingram Micro credit. iSupport Inc came in second place and won $1,000 in Ingram Micro credit and Calligo (Canada) Inc came in third place and won a $500 in Ingram Micro credit. Each winning partner received a trip to Montreal for an executive briefing conference at the ESET R & D Centre. Congratulations to all the winners and participants!

Following the ESET Cup is the NAPC (North American Partner Conference) incentive that kicked off October 1st of 2018. ESET’s NAPC will be held in San Diego from February 11th to 13th of 2019. It is a great opportunity to interact with peers, learn about ESET’s innovations and developments, hone your sales and marketing skills and of course, have fun! To win a trip, new resellers have an opportunity to earn a ballot for completing their very first purchase of ESET thru Ingram Micro and can earn additional ballots for every $1000 sold. The incentive is still ongoing and the winners are still yet to be announced.
Lastly, we’re thrilled to announce that ESET has been nominated in the 12th annual eCN Reseller Choice awards. Nominated in a whopping seven categories including Best Overall Vendor, Best Security Vendor and Best Firewall, ESET is looking to build off of last year’s success and is aiming to take home each award. You can vote for ESET at the Reseller Choice awards here. The winners will be announced at the live awards gala on February 7th, 2019.
Thank you to all of our supporters in 2018. We greatly appreciate your participation in all of our activities and incentives. ESET and Ingram Micro look forward to more exciting collaborations in 2019. From all of us, we wish you an awesome holiday season and a happy new year!
