BROOMFIELD, Colo., April 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Webroot, the market leader in endpoint security, network security, and threat intelligence, received a 5-star rating in the 2017 Partner Program Guide of CRN, a brand of The Channel Company. This annual guide recognizes an elite group of companies that offer solution providers the best partner tools in their channel programs.
To determine the 2017 5-star ratings, The Channel Company's research team assessed each vendor's breadth of program offerings; focus on partner profitability; quality of partner training, education and support; strength of marketing programs and sales support; and depth of communication.
Webroot's partner program enables managed service providers (MSPs) to leverage Webroot's endpoint and network threat protection to grow scalable, profitable services offerings that secure customers against the most advanced cyber threats. Security providers also can integrate Webroot BrightCloud Threat Intelligence into their solutions to protect against malicious URLs, IPs, files and mobile applications. Through security partners and a network of more than 8,000 MSPs, Webroot protects over 160,000 businesses.
"At Webroot, we focus on providing our partners with a next-generation security service to combat today's evolving threats and a toolkit that is easy to implement and automate so our MSPs can grow a profitable business," said Charlie Tomeo, Webroot's vice president of worldwide business sales.
"For solution providers, finding the right technology vendors to partner with is crucial to the health of their business, and the vast array of choices can be overwhelming," The Channel Company CEO Robert Faletra said. "Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-star ratings help them narrow the field, identifying the most rewarding partner programs and outlining their strengths and benefits."
Also, Webroot was recognized recently on CRN's 2017 Security 100 List. This project recognizes the coolest security vendors in each of five categories: Endpoint Security; Identity Management and Data Protection; Network Security; SIEM and Security Analytics; and Web, Email and Application Security. Webroot was named to the Security 100 list for demonstrating creativity and innovation in product development, as well as a strong commitment to delivering those offerings through a vibrant channel of solution providers.
