SAN FRANCISCO, April 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Kenna Security, a leader in predictive cyber risk, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given Kenna Security a 5-Star rating in its 2018 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of partner programs from technology vendors that provide products and services through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program Guide rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
To determine the 2018 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company's research team assessed each vendor's partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.
Kenna Security's channel partner program enables resellers and MSSPs to grow their businesses with a solution that solves a true pain point for their customers by giving them the ability to proactively manage risk, as opposed to reactive risk management solutions common in the market today. Led by Rick Kramer, Vice President of Worldwide Channel Sales and Alliances, Kenna is building a channel program that is globally consistent and supports many different routes to market while offering attractive benefits and training that encourage strong relationships and long-term commitments between Kenna and its partners.
Kenna is also focused on designing new certifications and developing guidance that enable its partners to easily go to market with alternative delivery methods, like managed security services, to bring the benefits of the Kenna Security Platform to their customers.
"Finding the right technology vendor to partner with can be a daunting task, given the vast array of choices now available to solution providers," said Robert Faletra, Executive Chairman of The Channel Company. "CRN's Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings help them narrow the field and find the best fit, identifying the most rewarding partner programs and providing crucial insight into their strengths and benefits. We are pleased to present our 2018 PPG list, recognizing the strongest and most successful partner programs in the channel today."
"A 5-star rating from CRN's Partner Program Guide is a testament to how seriously we are committed to fostering and growing our partner relationships and reinforces the value that Kenna delivers to help our partners grow their businesses," said Rick Kramer, Vice President of Worldwide Channel Sales and Alliances, Kenna Security. "Channel partnerships are an important area of focus and future growth for Kenna. We look forward to introducing more reward and support initiatives for partners as we continue to develop and improve our partner program."
The 2018 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/ppg.
