InfoSec Institute Launches New Channel Partner Program

October 2, 2018

MADISON, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 2, 2018--InfoSec Institute, the leading provider of IT security education and workforce security awareness training, today launched the InfoSec Institute Partner Program for managed services providers (MSPs), value-added resellers (VARs) and OEMs. The new barrier-free program diversifies partners’ security portfolios with the most comprehensive security awareness and training solution, SecurityIQ. Along with generous margins, all partners receive dedicated channel sales support, marketing resources and training to be successful.

According to a recent Osterman Research study, 45% of organizations reported a year-over-year rise in phishing attacks reaching their end users. Yet, only 36% of these organizations are confident their employee security training is sufficient to address the increase. With SecurityIQ in their portfolios, channel partners can help clients build a cyber-alert workforce equipped to recognize, avoid and report suspicious activity like phishing.

SecurityIQ is an easy to deploy and maintain cloud service for employee security education, available in right-sized subscription plans to match clients’ security awareness goals and maturity. The platform offers an unmatched library of role-based security training, phishing simulations, the industry’s first Security Awareness Practitioner Certification and integration with clients’ existing endpoint protection systems to deliver just-in-time security training — all new revenue stream opportunities for partners.

Free to join, the InfoSec Partner Program offers all qualified partners:

Profitable margins and bonus deal registration discounts Marketing and lead generation resources to generate brand awareness, drive demand and leverage market development funds Sales support resources to qualify opportunities, provide quoting or contracting assistance and close deals SecurityIQ technical sales training to help clients build effective security awareness programs Ability to resell , the award-winning family of professional IT security training boot camps and certification prep courses

To manage the new InfoSec Partner Program, the company recently welcomed industry veteran Michael Nobers as Director of Global Channel Sales. He leads the charge with years of security education experience and two decades of channel, business development and sales leadership know-how. “With a 20 year history of delivering security education, InfoSec Institute is here to stay. I look forward to bringing the same business integrity and reputation of our end client relationships to the new partnerships we’ll form through our channel program,” said Nobers. “Foregoing restrictive tiers and commitments common to other channel programs, the new InfoSec Institute Partner Program is our commitment to providing the resources and team support all partners need to strategically grow their businesses with new revenue streams.”
