NEW YORK, Jan. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SecurityScorecard, the leader in security ratings, today announced the launch of its Partner Program designed to drive new business opportunities and increased profits for value-added resellers (VARs) delivering next-generation security solutions. Program partners are helping customers address a major pain point faced when securing their enterprise data and networks - visibility into and control of unmanaged third-party risks.
The SecurityScorecard Partner Program is by-invitation-only, empowering a select group of VARs to uncover new opportunities, enhance customer solutions, and develop the expertise necessary to capitalize on the rapidly expanding security ratings market. The program already includes an exceptional group of partners that complement SecurityScorecard's go-to-market strategy, such as Gotham Technology Group, Optiv Security, GuidePoint Security, Bayside Solutions, and Sycomp.
"SecurityScorecard is a trusted brand with a proven technology that we believe in," said Ken Phelan, Chief Technology Officer at Gotham Technology Group. "With the introduction of the SecurityScorecard Partner Program, Gotham will be able to generate new business, increase margins, and accelerate time-to-revenue, while also providing customers with reliable solutions that offer unique and critical security insights into third-party risks."
SecurityScorecard works with partners to help strengthen their security expertise as trusted advisors and end-to-end solution providers for the SecurityScorecard platform. Program partners have access to deal registration, a collaborative sales model, qualified sales leads through teaming, enhanced sales and technical training, co-marketing funds, and joint business planning. Partners can also interface with some of the leading white hat hackers in the world, who can provide expert advice and guidance around product solutions to ensure customer success.
"Enterprise security is a problem that is top of mind all the way up to the board and, as a result, the need for cutting-edge risk management solutions is growing quickly," said Michael Rogers, Vice President of Strategic Alliances and Channels. "The SecurityScorecard Partner Program is an important step toward evolving our business model and harnessing the power of the channel to deliver on this demand. Our goal is to provide our powerful and unique security insights to every major company."
