SAN MATEO, Calif. – April 2, 2018 – AlienVault®, a leading provider of Unified Security Management® and crowd-sourced threat intelligence, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given the company a 5-Star rating in its 2018 Partner Program Guide for the third straight year. CRN’s annual guide is a definitive listing of partner programs from technology vendors that provide products and services through the IT channel. The 5-Star rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
To determine the 2018 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each vendor’s partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.
The AlienVault Partner Program enables leading VARs, system integrators, managed security service providers (MSSPs), managed detection and response providers (MDRs) and corporate resellers to represent AlienVault solutions and deliver compelling services powered by AlienVault USM in the global marketplace. With a strong focus on partner enablement, the program is designed to help partners create new opportunities for business growth, expansion and profitability.
“We are honored to have our Partner Program awarded a 5-Star rating by CRN for the third consecutive year,” said Mike LaPeters, vice president of global channels. “Our channel ecosystem is an integral part of AlienVault’s success, and USM Anywhere provides a value-added solution around which partners can build their security services. Our program focuses on enabling each partner to achieve their unique goals, and our commitment to our partner community is reflected in the stellar channel business growth we achieved in 2017.”
“Finding the right technology vendor to partner with can be a daunting task, given the array of choices now available to solution providers,” said Robert Faletra, executive chairman of The Channel Company. “CRN’s Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings help them narrow the field and find the best fit, identifying the most rewarding partner programs and providing crucial insight into their strengths and benefits. We are pleased to present our 2018 PPG list, recognizing the strongest and most successful partner programs in the channel today.”
The AlienVault Partner Program’s 5-Star rating is the latest in a series of channel-focused honors received over the past few months. In February, LaPeters was named a CRN Channel Chief; in March, AlienVault was named to CRN’s Security 100 list and highlighted as a top vendor for SIEM and Threat Detection solutions.
The 2018 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and is available online at www.CRN.com/ppg.
