Earlier this year, CRN awarded WatchGuard a five-star rating in its 2017 Partner Program Guide. This week, WatchGuard was again recognized with two additional honors:
- WatchGuard’s CEO, Prakash Panjwani, was recognized as one of CRN’s Top Midmarket IT Vendor Executives For 2017 for his experience and commitment to strengthening the company’s channel program and building powerful partnerships.
- The WatchGuardONE Partner Program earned “Best-in-Cloud” status in CRN’s 2017 Cloud Partner Programs Guide, the definitive handbook for solution providers looking to enable and accelerate the growth of their cloud initiatives by partnering with cutting-edge technology suppliers.
For its annual Cloud Partner Program Guide, CRN evaluates a pool of leading technology vendors to shine a spotlight on companies that possess both a highly compelling combination of cloud-related benefits for solution providers, and a demonstrated commitment to helping partners exceed their customers’ needs and expectations. WatchGuard was recognized for its upgraded partner portal and the cloud services provided through its award-winning WatchGuardONE channel program.
“In a saturated cloud market, it can be difficult for solution providers to differentiate among cloud vendors and find the right ones to partner with,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s Cloud Partner Program Guide simplifies this painstaking process, identifying the cloud partner programs with a compelling combination of resources, support, training and financial incentives. Our 2017 guide features a strong lineup of cutting-edge companies with proven track records of helping partners meet and exceed their customers’ needs.”
