Woburn, MA, April 25, 2011 – For the fourth consecutive year, Kaspersky Lab has earned a 5-Star rating in CRN’s 2011 Partner Programs Guide. CRN’s Partner Programs Guide and 5-Star Partner ratings serve as the definitive list of vendors who have robust partner programs, or products that service solution providers offer directly to the IT channel. The annual list recognizes the vendors who offer solution providers the best possible partnering elements for channel success.
The Kaspersky Green Team Partner Program
was designed with partner profitability in mind. The dedicated support team and industry-leading benefits create a rich and effective program where partners are able to easily maximize their competitive edge and market reach. There are now three levels available in the program, each offering distinctive rewards and commitments to best suit the needs of our partners. Kaspersky Lab relies exclusively on their partners to service the IT channel, which is why the Company is wholly-invested in sustainable partnerships.
Steve Orenberg, President
Kaspersky Lab Americas
“Kaspersky Lab’s partner program has been the primary driver of our company’s incredible success over the past six years, and as we grow, so do the opportunities for our partners. As we continue to bring innovative security technology to market, we will remain 100 percent committed to our partners, because we wouldn’t be here without their hard work.”
Kelley Damore, VP and Editorial Director
Everything Channel’s CRN
“The companies listed on the 2011 Partner Programs Guide represent the best channel programs in the market today. Of those, only a few get our five-star award, based on their commitment to the channel, breadth of program offerings and services offered to their partners. Each of these organizations understands that technology alone does not make for a successful channel program. By focusing on delivering a comprehensive partner program, vendors and solution providers can work together to drive business opportunities and revenue”
The 2011 Partner Programs Guide and 5-Star Partners listing will be featured on CRN.com and in the March 28th issue of CRN.
