With the rapidly changing IT security threat landscape, cybersecurity is one of the fastest growing and fastest growing segments of the IT industry, whether measured by demand or technological change. It also means a big business for the providers of strategic solutions and services that meet this demand with systems, services and expertise. It also increases partner demands for more training, accreditation and other resources from their supplier partners.
The Partner Program Guide 2020 provides the information solution providers need to evaluate the channel programs operated by the IT vendors they work with or plan to partner with. The guide is based on detailed requests submitted by vendors – over 230 this year – describing all aspects of their partner programs.
For the purposes of the Partner Program Guide, CRN refers to certain programs as 5 Star Partner Programs because they offer the most comprehensive range of incentives, training, services and benefits.
Here we are providing snapshots of the 5 star designated people in the safe space. Details of each vendor’s partner program can be found here.
Other slideshows in the 5 Star Partner Program guide series taking place this week will include companies that provide products and services for Networking and Unified Communications, Cloud, Software and Applications, Systems and data center, devices and peripherals, as well as data storage and backup. While many companies offer products and services spanning multiple technologies, we have assigned each vendor the slideshow of the technology category in which it is most important.
