FORCEPOINT GIVEN 5-STAR RATING IN CRN’S 2016 PARTNER PROGRAM GUIDE
Annual guide recognizes the best channel partner programs in the market
Forcepoint, a global leader in empowering organizations to drive business forward through transformative security technologies, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given Forcepoint a 5-Star rating in its 2016 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program Guide rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
To determine the 2016 5-Star ratings, 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.
Forcepoint’s Global Partner Program was recognized for its tools and resources - including access to world-class security insight and expertise - included in the benefits that help valued partners create opportunities, drive revenue and deliver results for customers with Forcepoint web, email, data and mobile security solutions.
“Solution providers have more choices than ever before when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor with the right technologies and the right channel approach can mean the difference between successful adoption of a new technology or business model and an awkward, unnecessarily difficult integration,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings recognize the best channel programs available in the market today and serve as a valuable resource for solution providers looking for the right fit.”
“We’re pleased to have received a 5-star rating from CRN. We believe it reflects our commitment to the success of our global partner community, giving them the ability to differentiate themselves from the competition not only through our innovative security solutions, but also our comprehensive enablement and support," said Vice President of Global Channel Sales and Professional Services at Forcepoint, John Starr.
The 2016 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/ppg2016.
