Pax8 wins Microsoft Global Partner of the Year!


At Pax8, we want our global community of over 35,000 MSP partners to succeed with Microsoft, and thanks to the work with our partners and Microsoft, we’re excited to announce that for the first time, we’ve won the Microsoft Global Partner of the Year award! Additionally, we’re thrilled to share that we have also been recognized as the U.S. Partner of the Year. Here are some of the key ways we empowered our partners that earned us this recognition.

“Thanks to the great work that Pax8 does every day on behalf of MSPs and their customers. I’m excited about what’s to come – especially with the innovation happening with Copilot and AI. I also know that we have just begun our journey ahead, and we’re going to do great things together.”

David Smith, VP WW, Channel Sales

Innovating the Pax8 Marketplace

The Pax8 Marketplace is a central component in our drive to innovate the channel ecosystem. Part of that has always been our strong partnership with Microsoft and the Microsoft Marketplace. By continuing to make it easier to buy, sell, and manage Microsoft licenses and discover growth opportunities, Pax8 partners have seen their Microsoft business accelerate.

In fact, SMB customers who work with Pax8 partners consume 2.5X more Microsoft services than those using competitor’s platforms.*

Ensuring partner and client success with Copilot

AI is here, and we’re enabling MSPs to bring it to market and make it accessible to SMBs. With a powerhouse combination of Pax8 Professional Services and the Pax8 Academy teams, our Microsoft Copilot Enablement Program equips our partners with the right education, testing, and migrations so they have secure environments to implement and sell Copilot successfully. In the first 30 days, we became the number one distributor of Copilot sales, with more than 1,700 partners selling more than 5,500 Copilot seats.

We helped our partners sell more than 1,000 Copilot seats within 24 hours of launching.

By merging Copilot’s innovation with tailored security solutions and an affordable package, Pax8 is addressing the challenges of AI adoption in the SMB sector and setting a new standard for secure, scalable AI integration.

“Helping MSPs demonstrate the practical approach to implementing it to make sure it lands well with customers is so important to the overall offering to partners.”

Dan Mitchell, CEO

Strengthening security with Pax8 Professional Services

Pax8 Professional Services drives security foundations with our Microsoft 365 Business Premium adoption path that guides MSPs through four transformative steps: adopting the CIS Controls framework, packaging security offerings, creating response playbooks, and developing security policies. We can enhance security for SMBs by providing managed detection and eradication of advanced threats through our Professional Services team.

“Some of our customers are… extremely security conscious about confidentiality and customer data. When it comes to the initiatives Pax8 is bringing to market around Copilot security, we can absolutely see the value this will bring to us.”

Tech for Social Impact initiative

Nonprofit SMBs around the world are often in need of IT and Microsoft help, and we’ve found that many of our MSP partners want to assist them. They just needed to find each other. Through our Tech for Social Impact initiative, we connected thousands of partners and nonprofits globally.

Over 4,000 Pax8 partners from around the globe support 12,000 nonprofit customers.

While we are beyond excited to have won this global award from Microsoft for the first time, and the U.S. Partner of the Year award for the third time, what we’re really excited about is how we will continue to drive innovation in the channel, be a megaphone for the voices of the MSP and SMB industry, and give our partners the tools to thrive.

“Pax8 is THE cloud marketplace that was born to disrupt and displace legacy distribution around the world. So being recognized with this award validates our unique approach and proves there is a better way to partner in the small-and-medium business space. We are honored, along with the Pax8 partner community, to play a leading role in the growth of the Microsoft SMB ecosystem and are very pleased to receive this award in recognition of our collective efforts. We’ll continue to provide SMB partners access to the latest Microsoft cloud software and remain focused on helping them grow their business, gain efficiencies, and reduce risk. Most importantly, we’ll continue to be the champion of the partners who serve the small and medium businesses of the world.”
