Anchors Award Winning Channel Program with Unique Offerings to Drive Partner Services Revenue and Competitive Advantage
SAN FRANCISCO and TEL AVIV—APRIL 9, 2018– GuardiCore, a leader in cloud and data center security, today unveiled significant enhancements to its award-winning GuardiCore Partner Program. Changes to the program align to the service-focused shift in the channel driven by new realities in cybersecurity, including the growth and sophistication of attacks, mounting consequences of a breach, increasing integration of business processes and security, professional skills shortage and the ongoing transition to the cloud. GuardiCore empowers partners focused on delivering professional and managed security services to deliver specialized and differentiated solutions to their customers to protect their most critical applications, while generating new revenue streams in a very competitive landscape.
“Today’s expanding attack surface and increasing complexities involved in protecting dynamic hybrid environments demand that partners be able to offer services and solutions that help ensure protection of their clients’ most critical assets,” said Todd Bice, Senior Director of Channels, and a 2018 CRN Channel Chief. “The GuardiCore Partner Program has been specifically designed to enable partners to deliver that value. We champion our partners’ growth strategies with offerings that support three primary models. We specifically enable a wide-range of partner-led professional services engagements, embed into partner operational services to deliver managed security services or provide a traditional reseller model to address various use cases.”
“GuardiCore enabled us to bring a unique and high-value managed security service to market,” said Andy Hicks, Senior Director at Blue Bastion. “The GuardiCore Centra Security Platform is the centerpiece of the technology stack we leverage in delivering our Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service. It allows us to deliver unparalleled visibility, unauthorized lateral movement detection, dynamic and static deception, and micro-segmentation services on an integrated platform. The value it delivers is remarkable.”
