Unified communications (UC) specialist SIPHON, has been named the 24th fastest growing technology company in the UK, as part of Deloitte’s prestigious UK Technology Fast 50 rankings. Security specialist Wick Hill has been awarded CRN’s prestigious Security Distributor of the Year 2016 title, for an unprecedented third time in a row. And advanced networking specialist Zycko has won two channel awards from Lifesize®, a global innovator of video conferencing technology. Zycko has been declared EMEA Distributor of the Year 2016 and EMEA Marketing Partner 2016.

Paul Eccleston, CEO of Nuvias, said: “These awards show a significant achievement for all companies in the Group in 2016 and illustrate their commitment and ability to deliver excellence to channel partners. Although two of these awards are UK-based, the industry leading solutions and services that all companies in the Group provide are available to channel partners across EMEA. In the last few months alone, for example, we have signed pan-EMEA contracts with Malwarebytes, Nokia and HID Global. The awards also justify the acquisition of all three companies into the Nuvias fold, as forward thinking organisations with a focus on innovation and technical excellence, as well as an ability to fulfil channel and vendor partner needs.”

SIPHON

SIPHON, a leading UC solutions and technology integrator for the channel, has been named by Deloitte as the 24th fastest growing technology company in the UK. This is the second consecutive year that SIPHON has been selected to be part of the prestigious Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50.

The Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50 is a ranking of the UK’s 50 fastest growing technology companies. The rankings are all about growth and are a celebration of innovation and entrepreneurship. Rankings are based on percentage revenue growth over the four year period to 31st May 2016, during which SIPHON grew by 723%.

David Cobb, Lead Partner, Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50 and Technology Fast 500 EMEA Programmes, commented: “Making the Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50 is a testament to a company’s commitment to technology. With its 723% growth rate over four years, SIPHON has proven that its leadership has the vision and determination to grow in competitive conditions.”

Steve Harris, Managing Director of SIPHON said: “It’s an honour and privilege to find ourselves ranked once again in the Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50. The high growth that this award acknowledges is indicative of the large and growing number of unified communications (UC) channel partners who look to us as their trusted technology partner across a wide range of cloud, Microsoft Skype for Business (SfB) and, more recently, video and collaboration offerings.”

Wick Hill

Wick Hill, a leading international value added distributor focussed on security, has won CRN’s Security Distributor of the Year title for an unprecedented third year in a row. The many achievements in 2016 which won Wick Hill the title include -

* 34% increase in UK sales, with improved services to reseller and vendor partners.

* Named one of London Stock Exchange’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain (for the second year in a row).

* Introduced a ground-breaking Partner Enablement Portal, bringing together various vendors’ content and providing a comprehensive blend of marketing automation, rich content and effective reporting for channel partners. One reseller commented: “With the help of PEP, sales have increased by an amazing 290% over the last year.”

* 40th anniversary in the IT business.

* New office in Vienna.

* Exhibited at Infosecurity Europe, with vendor and reseller partners on the stand, generating in excess of £2.5 million worth of potential business.

Ian Kilpatrick, EVP Cyber Security Nuvias Group and Chairman Wick Hill Group, said:

“This is a fiercely contested title and I’m very proud of the whole team which has achieved the staggering and unprecedented result of a three times in a row win for the CRN Security Distributor of the Year title. It’s a testament to what we have achieved for vendor and channel partners in the UK and DACH, and are already achieving across EMEA as part of Nuvias Group.”

Not intended for UK- and US-based media Pierre Fabre and its partner Array BioPharma Inc. today announced updated safety and efficacy results, including OS, from the safety lead-in of the Phase 3 BEACON CRC trial evaluating the triplet combination of encorafenib, a BRAF inhibitor, binimetinib, a MEK inhibitor and cetuximab, an anti-EGFR antibody, in patients with BRAF V600E -mutant metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC). The results showed that, at the time of analysis, the OS data were fully mature through 12.6 months and that the median OS had not yet been reached. The one-year overall survival rate for this cohort was 62%. These data were presented in an oral presentation on Saturday, June 23, at the ESMO 20th World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer in Barcelona, Spain. The median progression-free survival (mPFS) for patients treated with the triplet was 8 months [95% CI 5.6-9.3] and is similar between patients receiving one prior line of therapy and patients receiving two prior lines

Compelling Data for LONSURF® (trifluridine/tipiracil) in Metastatic Colorectal Cancer Presented at ESMO’s World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer by Servier and Taiho23.6.2018 08:10Pressemelding

Servier and Taiho Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. today announced that the TASCO-1 trial demonstrated promising results for LONSURF® (trifluridine/tipiracil) in combination with bevacizumab in patients with previously untreated metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) who are not suitable for intensive treatment, with a median progression-free survival (PFS) of 9.2 months (ranging from 7.6 to 11.5 months). A second non-comparative arm in the trial, evaluated the outcome of patients treated with the current standard of care of capecitabine in combination with bevacizumab. The median PFS of this arm was 7.8 months (ranging from 5.5 to 10.1 months). “Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in the world. While there has been some progress in treatment, there are still few options for patients with metastatic disease who are not suitable for intensive treatment,” said Professor Eric Van Cutsem, Head of Digestive Oncology at the University of Leuven, Belgium. “These compelling results suggest
