Annual guide recognizes the channel’s top partner programs.
AUSTIN, Texas, April 13, 2017 – GFI Software, the leading provider of network security and communications solutions, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given GFI Software 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 Partner Program Guide rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
To determine the 2018 5-Star 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.
The GFI Partner Program supports IT resellers that are looking to provide small and medium-sized businesses with award-winning network security and communications solutions. GFI offers competitive products, pricing and a comprehensive support package of marketing, training and technical support to help partners build a successful business of their own.
“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.”
“We are honoured to be awarded 5-stars for our partner program, and this recognition is testament of our continued commitment to our channel partners.”, said Johannes Kamleitner, Senior Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer at GFI Software. “We revamped our partner program earlier this year and recently launched GFI Unlimited, so that our partners can provide customers with access to all the right-sized business software they need, when they need it, for one predictable, low cost.”
