AttackIQ Awarded a 5-Star Rating in CRN’s 2019 Partner Program Guide

April 1, 2019

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 1, 2019--AttackIQ™, a leader in the emerging market of continuous security validation, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given AttackIQ’s Accelerate Channel Program a 5-Star rating in its 2019 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide 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 best-in-class partnering components in their channel programs.

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 AttackIQ Accelerate Channel Program is designed to provide service providers (MSPs, MSSPs and SIs), value-added resellers (VARs) and security consultants with a very profitable selling model. The program is backed by competitive discounts, opportunity registration and protection, co-marketing support and programs designed to create new opportunities and increase sales.

The key advantage of the AttackIQ platform is to enable security professionals to continuously evaluate their security controls to ensure they are working as intended. For channel partners, the platform offers something for all three areas of their business:

  • Sales: Allows them to upscale their trusted advisor status.
  • Sales Engineer: Validate security control configurations within customer accounts.
  • Professional Services: Leverage open architecture to write custom scripts to best support their existing and new customers.

“We are honored to receive a 5-Star rating in CRN’s Partner Program Guide following the launch of our Accelerate Channel Program,” said Dan Sibille, vice president of global channels at AttackIQ. “This achievement further motivates us to continue executing our partner-centric strategy while expanding our global partner community with the ‘best-in-class’ security partners from each partner segment. Our partners are in the best position to deliver our platform to enable their customers to validate their security controls and optimize ROI in those investments.”

Key benefits of AttackIQ’s Accelerate Channel Partner Program include:

  • Value-based program with consistent criteria and benefits globally
  • Discount structure and margins based upon partner segments
  • Compelling discount and margin for “registered” opportunities
  • Sales, technical and services curriculums and certifications
  • Market development funds (MDF) and marketing support

The 2019 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/ppg.
