Trend Micro is committed to delivering the highest level of service to our partners and we have been consistently recognized for our work. Now, we have another honor for which we are grateful. We’ve been awarded the prestigious 5-Star rating in The Channel Company’s CRN 2015 Partner Program Guide, and we are truly humbled.
The CRN Partner Program Guide is a resource that solution providers rely on to discover, research and evaluate various vendor partner programs. The information is important as providers weigh and compare the benefits and incentives offered by manufacturers when choosing a partner. Along with the value of a brand, products and market position, the partner program is an integral part of the overall value a solution provider looks for.
Each year, The Channel Company’s Research team assesses vendor applications based on investments in-program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication. Upon this evaluation, 5-Star recipients are recognized as an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the most beneficial channel programs.
At Trend Micro, we’re privileged to enable our more than 35,000 channel partners to more quickly and fully capitalize on the growing market for solutions that address today’s key security trends, including the consumerization of IT, cloud and virtualization, and cyber threats. We’re particularly pleased with the interest expressed by cloud services providers — including many AWS, Microsoft Azure, and VMware vCloud Air public cloud consulting partners — that are eager to embed our security solutions into their cloud services offerings.
Our entire team is 100 percent focused on the success of channel partners, and, this recognition validates our committment.
To reinforce our mission, we announced last summer our new Global Partner Program to make our award-winning program even better, and we are excited to continue rolling out more improvements on a this year.
As our program continues to grow, I personally look forward to ongoing collaboration with you, our partners, to provide the best solutions possible, and make 2015 the best year yet.
Cheers to our bright future—together!
