The 2019 recognition marks the sixth time FireMon has been awarded a 5-Star rating in CRN’s prestigious annual guide, which identifies the strongest and most successful partner programs in the channel today, offered by the top technology suppliers for IT products and services. The 5-Star rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

The FireMon Ignite Partner Program is strategically designed to drive sales opportunities, increase partner profitability and deliver high customer satisfaction. Partners enrolled in the program have access to the innovative tools and resources, such as a mobile-friendly partner portal and an on-demand learning management system, as well as the expertise required to successfully sell FireMon’s network security and policy management solutions to customers worldwide. FireMon is also committed to increasing various channel routes-to-market to support the company’s evolving product portfolio, including its new cloud security offerings.

“Being recognized by CRN, once again, as one of the IT channel’s top partner programs validates our strategy and the benefits we bring to our partners,” said Kurt Mills, FireMon’s vice president of worldwide channel sales and operations. “With today’s complex, hybrid environments, companies are struggling with network visibility, cloud migration, policy orchestration and automation. This presents a tremendous opportunity for channel companies, and we’re committed to providing them with the industry-leading products, world-class support, and on-demand training and resources they need to turn this opportunity into profitability.”

To determine the 2019 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each supplier’s partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication.

“With new technologies emerging every year, evaluating which IT vendors to partner with grows increasingly more complex for solution providers,” said Bob Skelley, CEO, The Channel Company. “We are proud the CRN Partner Program Guide has become the trusted resource to identify the most rewarding partner programs and provides crucial insight into their strengths and benefits for the channel.”

The 2019 Partner Program Guide is featured in the April issue of CRN and online at: www.CRN.com/ppg. For more information about FireMon’s Ignite Partner Program, please visit: https://ignite.firemon.com/English/.
