RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SecurityFirst, a provider of data-centric cyber solutions, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized the company 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 SecurityFirst Partner Program offers data-centric security solutions to the channel partner community. Central to the program is the company’s flagship software, DataKeep™, an innovative and affordable software-only solution to protect business sensitive and customer private data across any on-premises or cloud-based storage environment.
“A hallmark of our DataKeep program is that we’re just easy to do business with whether you’re a traditional reseller or a service provider,” said Jim Varner, CEO of SecurityFirst. “Recent high-profile data breaches and new, tougher regulations have set the agenda for explosive growth of data protection solutions in 2018, and we’re honored to have our program recognized as industry leading.”
SecurityFirst is 100 percent channel focused and provides sales, marketing and technical support to assist partners in expanding their security businesses, growing incremental revenue and profitability with the help of aggressive pricing discounts. The SecurityFirst Channel Partner Program has two lines of support, with many features common to both:
- Channel Partner Program: Organizations looking to protect on-premises data may benefit most from a perpetual technology licensing arrangement. Resellers participate at three levels – Platinum, Gold and Silver – corresponding to their technical capabilities and offering graduated discounts.
- MSSP (Managed Security Service Provider) Program: Organizations moving to public cloud or hybrid environments can take advantage of a subscription-based approach, with providers delivering and supporting DataKeep to their customer base and achieving deeper discounts based on the level of Monthly Recurring Revenue (MRR) attained.
“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 helps 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 compile the guide, 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 2018 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/ppg.
