Appgate, the secure access company, today announced the launch of the Appgate Sentinel Program, an innovative new incentive program designed for its worldwide channel partners. The Sentinel Program is a tiered, rewards-based educational program that was built for individual Solution Architects and Sales Engineers who are seeking to advance their technical skillset and collaborate with a community of like-minded practitioners. Participants in this new program will be eligible for a range of rewards including gifts, certifications, and professional recognition as they design and deploy the next generation of Zero Trust and SDP-based solutions.
“At its core, our new Sentinel Program is about educating and engaging our partners who, once equipped with the right tools and incentives, will be well positioned to evangelize Appgate’s Software Defined Perimeter approach in the channel,” said Tina Gravel, Senior Vice President Channels & Alliances for Appgate. “This program goes beyond conventional sales performance incentives by prioritizing the technical educational and community aspects which individual practitioners have told us they value most.”
Appgate’s Sentinel Program features three distinct certification tiers that are tailored to meet the distinct requirements of technology practitioners and solution evangelists who are selling, building, and deploying the next generation of Zero Trust Access solutions.
“At AVANT, we pride ourselves on enabling partners to operate as trusted advisors who help customers navigate the ever-changing world of communications and IT infrastructure,” said Drew Lydecker, co-founder & President of AVANT. “Appgate’s new Sentinel Program will benefit partners who are prioritizing Zero Trust Access, while, at the same time, providing needed support to the engineering teams tasked with deploying it.”
As a Sentinel member attains a new certification level, they will be eligible to receive and share recognition on the community leaderboard. Appgate partners whose employees achieve Commander or Guardian status will accrue additional benefits including co-marketing and promotional support, invitations to the CEO Council at the Appgate Partner Summit, access to future beta programs, and many other benefits.
“Our goal at Clarify360 is to compress the IT sourcing cycle by providing smarter and faster ways for customers to procure and deploy solutions that help them increase performance and efficiencies across cloud, hybrid and on-premises environments,” said Jo Peterson, Vice President Cloud & Security Services for Clarify360. “We are excited to be part of Appgate’s groundbreaking Sentinel Program and know that it will provide us with the necessary tools and methodology we need to deliver secure access across any footprint.”
“As a leading provider of network and security solutions, INSA is always looking to stay current with the latest trends that are reshaping the technology landscape and there are few trends that have proven to be as transformative as Zero Trust,” said Mario Bruketa, President of INSA Corp. “We are honored to be the first partner with a Commander in our ranks. With Appgate’s new Sentinel Program, we are proud to be certified to build and deliver the full complement of Appgate’s Zero Trust solutions to our customers and are confident this will help us differentiate ourselves in this highly competitive market.”
