FireMon, the leading network security policy management company that brings visibility, control, agility, and automation to enterprise cloud and hybrid network infrastructure, is being acknowledged by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, in its 2021 Partner Program Guide. The 5-star rating is afforded to vendors that CRN deems to have the most comprehensive lineups of incentives, training, services, and benefits, all of which are areas that FireMon continues to focus on to drive channel loyalty and growth.
2020 was a watershed year for FireMon’s partner strategy, and it has laid the groundwork to bring more structure through 2021 and beyond to its partner programs to enable it to better scale its channel. The company’s programs now offer a host of new tools and business opportunities to support joint business development, allow partners to become self-sufficient, and provide an improved partner and customer experience.
“Network security is in the midst of a massive transformation, which was only accelerated in 2020,” said Andrew Warren, VP Global Channel Sales at FireMon. “With customers accelerating to the cloud, adopting zero trust and SASE architectures, and increasing investments in security automation, the partner community is a critical lynchpin in helping them select and implement the right solutions to support their businesses. Our recognition as a 5-Star vendor in the CRN program guide underscores FireMon’s commitment to being a 100% channel organization and to maintaining strong, mutually beneficial relationships with our partners.”
The annual 2021 Partner Program Guide is a definitive list of the most distinguished partner programs from leading technology companies that provide products and services through the IT Channel. Given the importance of IT vendor channel programs, each year, CRN develops this guide to offer the channel community a detailed look at the partner programs offered by IT manufacturers, software developers, service companies, and distributors. Vendors are scored based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication.
“As innovation continues to fuel the speed and intricacy of technology, solution providers need partners that can keep up and support their developing business.” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s 2021 Partner Program Guide gives insight into the strengths of each organization’s program to recognize those that continually support and push positive change inside the IT channel.”
The 5-Star rating is awarded to an exclusive group of companies that offer solution providers the best of the best, going above and beyond in their partner programs.
The 2021 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April 2021 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/PPG.
