San Mateo, Calif—April 10, 2017 – AlienVault®, the leading provider of Unified Security Management™ (USM™) and crowdsourced threat intelligence, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given AlienVault a 5-Star rating in its 2017 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of partner programs from technology vendors that provide products and services 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 2017 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.
“For solution providers, finding the right technology vendors to partner with is crucial to the health of their business, and the vast array of choices can be overwhelming,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings help them narrow the field, identifying the most rewarding partner programs and outlining their strengths and benefits.”
“Our channel ecosystem is an indispensible part of AlienVault’s sales model, and CRN’s 5-Star rating recognizes our unwavering commitment to our partners,” said Mike LaPeters, AlienVault Vice President of Global Channel Sales. “Our all-in-one security platforms, USM Appliance and USM Anywhere, provide value-added, end-to-end solutions for our partners, and we offer customized training and support to help them strategically develop their service offerings around USM. With a strong focus on enablement, our partner program is specifically designed to promote the success of each and every one of our partners.”
In recent months, AlienVault’s Partner Program has received a number of prestigious honors. AlienVault was recently named to CRN’s Security 100 list as one of the top vendors in the SIEM & threat detection space. In February, LaPeters was named a 2017 Channel Chief by CRN, which recognizes leaders that excel at driving growth and revenue in their organizations through the IT channel.
