Today, we’re proud to announce an expansion of our award-winning WatchGuardONE partner program, which introduces product-specific specializations IT solution providers can earn in order to reach WatchGuardONE status. The new structure offers multiple paths of entry into partnership via specializations in Network Security, Secure Wi-Fi and Multi-factor Authentication (MFA). We believe this program expansion showcases our unique, partner-first mentality and value-based approach to partnership by removing barriers to entry and ensuring maximum return on investment to make it easier than ever to do business with WatchGuard.
Now, partners can more easily tap into the financial incentives and sales, marketing and technical support that come with WatchGuardONE status – all without bending over backward to achieve the type of revenue thresholds or product portfolio adoption requirements many vendors demand. Any IT solution provider can achieve WatchGuardONE status by simply earning a specialization in just one of the available product categories, and access increasing status and benefits by completing specializations in multiple product lines.
Each specialization has its own unique set of simple, knowledge-based requirements that consist primarily of free sales and technical trainings. For complete details about the expanded program and specialization requirements, visit here.
WatchGuard’s partners are excited about the new specializations too! In an exclusive story on CRN about the WatchGuardONE program expansion, Don Gulling, president of Verteks Consulting shared his perspective: “Adding secure Wi-Fi and multifactor authentication competencies will help Verteks Consulting differentiate itself from other solution providers that also sell network security.”
