Boston, MA., March 25, 2013 – – CORE Security®, a leading provider of predictive security intelligence solutions, today announced its CORE Secured® partner program has been named to CRN’s 2013 Partner Program Guide, and awarded a 5-Star Partner rating. The CRN Partner Program Guide is the definitive listing of manufacturers and software publishers that service solution providers or provide products to the IT Channel. The guide recognizes those vendors who have channel programs and derive a portion of their sales through the indirect IT Channel. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of Partner Program Guide vendors who give solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
The list methodology is based on objective criteria that takes into account each vendor’s investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication. Vendors are assessed using information provided in their completed applications.
CORE Security developed and launched its CORE Secured program in 2012, and in its initial year, the company signed a total of 23 partners and resellers globally. The program includes 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 and its partners conducted more than two dozen joint live events and webinars during the course of the year.
“The companies listed in CRN’s 2013 Partner Program Guide represent a comprehensive list of the best channel programs in the market today,” said Kelley Damore, Senior Vice President and Editorial Director, for UBM Tech Channel’s CRN. “The 5-star award is reserved for vendors that understand that a successful partnership does not rely solely on the technology. By offering their partners tools, education and regular updates, vendors on this list go above and beyond traditional support to ensure a mutually beneficial partnership.”
“We are very pleased to have earned a 5-star designation from the CRN Partner Program Guide, the leading channel publication” said Joseph Schramm, director, strategic alliances & partner enablement, CORE Security. “Our partner program is a critical element of Core’s growth plans. Our partners are delivering predictive security solutions to a range of customers to help them with their critical security issues: identifying where attacks will occur and proactively acting to mitigate them. Our CORE Secured partners help us to create leverage and drive growth for the company, and we plan to continue to build on the program’s success this year.”
The 2013 Partner Program Guide will be featured on CRN.com and the 5-Star Partners listing will be highlighted in the March 2013 issue of CRN.
