Woburn, MA – March 28, 2022 – Today, Kaspersky is celebrated by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, with a prestigious 5-star rating in its 2022 Partner Program Guide, marking the company’s 13th year receiving this award.
CRN’s annual Partner Program Guide provides a definitive list of the most notable partner programs from industry-leading technology vendors that provide innovative products and flexible services through the IT channel. The 5-star rating is achieved only by select vendors that deliver the best of the best, going above and beyond in their partner programs to help push growth and positive change.
The Partner Program Guide provides the channel community with a deep dive into the partner programs offered by IT vendors, service providers and distributors. Companies are scored based on their investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication. A 5-star rating helps narrow the field to find the best fit, identifying the most rewarding partner programs and providing crucial insight into their strengths.
As a channel focused, committed and driven company, Kaspersky continues to prioritize partners by making consistent updates to the company’s partner program, Kaspersky United. Over the last year, Kaspersky’s biggest accomplishment was growing the company’s MSP partner base by 74%+ year over year. Kaspersky attributes this success to the introduction of a flexible pay-as-you-go monthly subscription payment plan, user-friendly License Management Portal for partners and a wide range of products and services that fill a variety of business needs.
“We are thrilled to once again be honored by CRN with their 5-Star Rating for 2022’s Partner Program Guide,” said Matthew Courchesne, head of channel at Kaspersky North America. “Last year we placed a strong focus around introducing new products such as Managed Detection and Response and expanding strategic partnerships with incident response providers to help fill a need for on premise service providers as challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic continue on. We look forward to working with our partners to leverage their feedback and continue improving our partner program.”
“CRN’s Partner Program Guide delves into the strengths of each organization’s partner program in order to honor those that consistently support and promote good change within the IT channel,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “As innovation fuels the speed and complexity of technology today, solution providers want partners that can keep up with and assist their growing business.”
The 2022 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April 2022 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/PPG.
