TORONTO, Oct. 16, 2013 /CNW/ - Softchoice, a North American technology solutions and services company, is pleased to announce it has been named McAfee's North American Corporate Reseller of the Year. The award was given in recognition of Softchoice's assessment-led approach, and focus on working with clients to improve security and reduce overall costs by consolidating essential security applications.
