Boston, MA (PRWEB) March 25, 2013
AlgoSec, the market leader for Network Security Policy Management, today announced it 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.
In addition to this recognition, AlgoSec’s Director of Channels, Brad Canavan, has also been named one of CRN’s Channel Chiefs, a prestigious list of the most influential and powerful leaders in the IT channel recognizing those executives directly responsible for driving channel sales and growth within their organization. Canavan leads the expansion and development of AlgoSec’s North American channel effort, which has resulted in a 30 percent YoY increase in channel-driven revenue.
“AlgoSec is honored to be recognized by CRN for these awards," said Brad Canavan, Director of Channels at AlgoSec. "We have taken significant strides to expand and enable our channel and our strategy is proving successful with strong growth from both new and existing partners in 2012. In 2013, we will continue to deepen relationships with our partners and enable them to help customers address the challenges of managing complex security policies.”
"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.”
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.
