Value added resellers in the US have chosen GFI Software as one of the Best Channel Vendors in the latest survey conducted by Business Solutions Magazine. Over 4,300 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, Channel-friendliness, channel program and VAR margins given.
GFI was rated among the top vendors with VARs giving the company high scores across the board in the Managed Services and Security categories, underscoring the growing awareness and reputation of GFI in these highly competitive areas.
“This is a great accolade for GFI, particularly because it is based on direct feedback from our channel partners. It is a testament to our hard work and close engagement with the Channel, in particular our efforts to deliver a tightly-integrated cloud-based solution set to our rapidly-growing MSP business. It is very encouraging to note that our most recent integration of our VIPRE security technology into the GFI MAX platform is so well-regarded by the Channel. The levels of uptake of the technology components within the GFI MAX RemoteManagement demonstrate the value of a single delivery platform to support the business of our partners and our strategy is focussed on continuing to broaden this capability.” said Alistair Forbes, general manager, GFI MAX business unit.
“GFI certainly earned its spot on this year's Business Solutions Magazine Best Channel Vendors list,” said Sue Bresee, publisher of Business Solutions magazine. “GFI rated exceptionally well overall in both the Network Security and Managed Services category, but particularly high in Channel Friendly and Product Reliability. Our survey results clearly show that GFI has many satisfied resellers.”
