Annual guide recognizes the very best channel partner programs in the market
Boston, MA, March 26, 2014 – Core Security®, a leading provider of attack intelligence solutions,today announced it has been awarded a 5-Star rating in the CRN 2014 Partner Program Guide. The annual directory is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
The CORE Secured® partner program enables partners to enhance their enterprise solutions by leveraging the industry’s most comprehensive and extensible attack intelligence platform. Core’s Attack Intelligence Platform allows information security professionals to Think Like An Attacker™ by proactively addressing security threats based on real attacks that hackers use. Backed by more than 15 years of applied expertise and focus on attacker behavior, the platform combines the capabilities of Core Security Consulting Services (SCS), Core Impact Pro and Core Insight. Using Core’s patented attack path planner and engine to simulate attacks and conduct live tests, security professionals can associate known threats, vulnerabilities and attack patterns with security and network data to identify potential attack paths to critical business assets. By narrowing the scope of imminent threats from what is possible to what is most likely, the Core Attack Intelligence Platform significantly improves an organization’s security posture.
Core’s comprehensive partner program covers a wide range of benefits and entitlements, including extensive sales and technical training, co-marketing investments, jointly-developed marketing and go-to-market plans and field support. Through the Core Secured program, Core Security and its partners conducted more than two dozen joint live events and webinars during the course of last year.
To determine the 2014 5-Star recipients, The Channel Company’s Research team assessed each vendor’s application based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.
“Solution providers have a lot of choices when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor, with the right technologies, and the right approach can make all the difference,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star rating recognizes the very best channel programs available in the market today to help solution providers determine which vendor delivers the best partner elements for their individual business goals.”
“We have always derived a significant component of our business from our indirect sales channels; as we move into 2014, our partner program and the business that it drives is even more critical to our growth,” said Scott Devens, Senior Vice President of Field Operations, Core Security. “This 5-star recognition from CRN highlights our success in building out our indirect go-to-market strategy and communicates to other potential partners the quality of our program.”
The 2014 Partner Program Guide will be featured on CRN.com and the 5-Star Partners listing will be highlighted in the April issue of CRN.
