WALTHAM, Mass. – September 19, 2018 – Digital Guardian today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized Digital Guardian in its 2018 Cloud Partner Program Guide, a list of leading technology vendors with cloud-related partner programs that enable and accelerate the growth of solution providers’ cloud initiatives. This distinction closely follows Digital Guardian earning the coveted 5-Star rating in CRN's 2018 Partner Program Guide.
The CRN 2018 Cloud Partner Program Guide serves as a valuable resource for solution providers navigating the growing cloud marketplace, assisting them in finding technology suppliers with ground-breaking cloud offerings and partner programs. To meet the requirements for inclusion in the Cloud Partner Program Guide, tech vendors must have unique partner program benefits that deliver cloud infrastructure or applications.
Digital Guardian has a long history of offering cloud-driven solutions and is committed to continually expanding its solution portfolio. In 2012, the company debuted its cloud-delivered Managed Security Program for Data Loss Prevention (DLP), based on the Digital Guardian Digital Protection Platform, and in 2017, launched its first SaaS solution. This year, Digital Guardian is migrating to a cloud-first approach to focus on selling managed services and SaaS solutions. Offering maximum deployment flexibility, the company’s award-winning Synergy Partner Program also empowers partners to implement an on-premises software solution for certain key customers if required.
“With so many options available in the cloud marketplace today, solution providers often have a difficult time deciding which vendors offer the best program to complement their business strategy,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of the Channel Company. “The CRN Cloud Partner Program Guide helps to simplify the process by researching and identifying the cloud partner programs with the most comprehensive combination of resources, support, training, and financial incentives. Our 2018 guide includes a strong combination of innovative companies who support their partners needs and help them to succeed.”
“Evolving from exclusively offering on-premises solutions to a cloud-first mentality has been one of our most significant company initiatives, and has increased channel engagement and enablement,” said Greg Cobb, Vice President, Global Channels. “Partners can now get up-to-speed with Digital Guardian technology much faster, and more easily demo and deliver solutions to customers. And, importantly, end-user security teams benefit by focusing more time, energy and resources on identifying and mitigating risks to their sensitive data and less time on acquiring, building and maintaining the infrastructure.”
The Cloud Partner Program Guide will be featured in the October issue of CRN and can be viewed online at www.crn.com/cloud-ppg.
