WALTHAM, Mass. – April 02, 2018 – Digital Guardian today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has awarded Digital Guardian a 5-Star rating in its 2018 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of partner programs from technology vendors that provide products and services through the IT channel. The 5-Star rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
To determine the ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each vendor’s partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.
Digital Guardian introduced its Synergy Partner Program in 2015 and quickly established a strong reputation as a channel-led vendor partner. To keep pace with the increase in demand for data protection solutions, Digital Guardian strengthened its commitment to channel partners in 2017 by introducing a new set of programs and incentives automated through a state-of-the-art partner portal, and expanding the partner footprint globally.
“Finding the right technology vendor to partner with can be a daunting task, given the vast array of choices now available to solution providers,” said Robert Faletra, Executive Chairman of The Channel Company. “CRN’s Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings help them narrow the field and find the best fit, identifying the most rewarding partner programs and providing crucial insight into their strengths and benefits. We are pleased to present our 2018 PPG list, recognizing the strongest and most successful partner programs in the channel today.”
“Digital Guardian is committed to providing best-in-class channel programs, so we’re honored to be recognized as a leader by The Channel Company and CRN,” said Marcus Brown, VP of Global Channels. “The number and severity of data breaches continues to grow, and new regulations such as GDPR are creating budget for new data protection projects. That’s driving increased demand for data protection solutions around the globe. Digital Guardian’s Synergy Partner Program is designed to enable our channel partners to meet their clients’ needs immediately, efficiently and with the highest quality.”
The 2018 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/ppg.
