GFI selected as one of the best Channel vendors in the US

January 12, 2009 - 12:00

Value added resellers in the US have chosen GFI as one of the Best Channel Vendors in the security category. GFI, a leading provider of email and security software, was rated among the top vendors, with VARs giving high scores for GFI’s product features, product reliability and product innovation.

Over 1,600 VARs who subscribe to Business Solutions Magazine, a leading channel publication, were asked to choose the best channel vendors on the basis of the vendor’s level of service/support, product offerings, friendliness towards the Channel, its channel program and VAR margins given. VARs were asked to rate their vendor partners on a scale of 0 (worst) to 5 (best). The top 15% of vendors in 15 categories are featured in a special January 2009 issue of the magazine which looks at the best (and worst) Channel vendors.

“This is fantastic news for GFI and is testament to our hard work within the Channel. GFI prides itself on providing the SMB sphere with market-leading products and our success is also fruit of the hard work that our Channel partners do throughout the year,” Ed Harnish, vice-president of marketing at GFI, commented.

“We are very pleased that VARs in the US have rated us among the top 15% of vendors in the security sphere and this award encourages us to continue providing quality and innovative products at unbeatable prices to our customers via the Channel,” he added.

In a comment about GFI to Business Solutions Magazine, one VAR said: “The reseller business is cutthroat, and the thing that makes the difference is the relationship you have with that channel partner you work with – a partner like GFI.”
