Annual guide recognizes the channel’s top partner programs

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA, April 2, 2018 - Cylance Inc., the company that revolutionized the antivirus and endpoint protection industry with true AI powered prevention that blocks advanced cyberattacks, including fileless attacks, malware, advanced persistent threats, and zero-day attacks, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given Cylance a 5-Star rating in its 2018 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 2018 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company's research team assessed each vendor's partner program based on investments in program offerings, as well as parter profitability, training, education, and support. Each partner's marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication were also assessed.

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 Cylance Partner Portal provides easy access to the tools and content partners need to generate leads and close deals.

"Finding the right technology vendor to partner with can be a daunting task, given the vast 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."

"Receiving a 5-Star rating in CRN’s Partner Guide is a testament to the company’s 100% channel focus, and the role of partners as our force multiplier," said Didi Dayton, Vice President of Worldwide Channels and Alliances at Cylance. "Our partners continue to be essential to driving Cylance’s successful global expansion and the rapid adoption of our prevention-first security solutions."

The 2018 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/ppg.
