Prestigious Annual Guide Recognizes the Channel's Top Partner Programs
CHICAGO - April 02, 2018 - Trustwave today announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has bestowed a 5-Star rating on its Partner Program in CRN's 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.
The Trustwave Channel Partner Program delivers one of the industry's most comprehensive portfolio of security products and services addressing business needs in the areas of threat, vulnerability and compliance management. In addition to security solutions, the program offers valuable resources to help partners launch sales and marketing campaigns and highly-accessible support to help ensure ongoing needs of customers are met. Trustwave offers multiple levels of engagement to give channel partners a wide range of collaboration options from simple referrals to joint planning for the development of mutually beneficial relationships.
"Our partners are invaluable to our growth and continued market penetration as we help businesses worldwide fight cybercrime, protect data and reduce risk," stated Jim Ritchings, senior vice president of worldwide channel sales at Trustwave. "CRN's 5-Star recognition denotes our committed efforts to deliver world-class security solutions, sales resources, and hands-on support that gives our partners marked advantages in the field."
"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."
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.
