Annual guide recognizes the channel’s top partner programs
IRVINE, CALIFORNIA, April 10, 2017 - Cylance® Inc., the company that revolutionized the antivirus industry with AI powered prevention that blocks everyday malware along with today’s most advanced cyberthreats, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given Cylance 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 information technology (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.
The Cylance Partner Program offers award-winning solutions built on advanced technology and a broad array of services. Cylance supports various partner types and provides a wide range of benefits and resources for partners to grow their business. The newly launched Cylance Partner Portal provides easy access to the tools and content partners need to generate leads and close deals.
“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.”
“Receiving a 5-Star rating in CRN’s Partner Guide honors the hard work our channel team has put in to the Cylance Partner Program,” said Didi Dayton, vice president of worldwide channels at Cylance. “The enthusiasm from our partners has been a driving force behind Cylance’s successful global expansion and the rapid adoption of CylancePROTECT® by the market.”
The 2017 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/ppg.
