Guide Highlights Best-in-Class Channel Partner Programs

Bitdefender, a global cybersecurity leader protecting over 500 million systems across 150 countries, is pleased to announce that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized Bitdefender in its 2019 Cloud Partner Program Guide — the definitive handbook for solution providers looking to partner with today’s top cloud technology vendors.

With the recent launch of the revamped Bitdefender Partner Advantage Network MSP Program, Bitdefender has doubled down on its commitment to constant innovation and a sharp focus on benefits for partners. The program offers partners well-structured incentives, opportunities for increased profitability, and accelerated return on investment. The MSP program was added to the existing Partner Advantage Network (PAN) Reselling Channel Program and then the Integrated Channel Program, which form part of the company’s consolidated global growth strategy.

“This award offers yet more proof that the decision to bolster our Partner Advantage Network with the new MSP Program was the right one. We are honored,” said Cristian Corabu, Senior Director, Worldwide Enterprise Marketing. “Our MSP partners can now benefit from dedicated benefits enabling them to excel, contributing to a strong, mutually beneficial partnership.”

Roy Miehe, INTERNAL owner and chief executive officer/president at MspPortal Partners Inc, said Bitdefender Cloud Security for Managed Service Providers is the first product he’s seen that can manage all his clients’ endpoints through a single pane of glass.

"Bitdefender Cloud Security for Managed Service Providers has revolutionized how we support our customers – providing them the best security while saving our organization time and money,” Miehe said. “With Bitdefender I can support 274 clients on the fly which has tremendously impacted the growth of our business."

CRN’s 2019 Cloud Partner Program Guide is a valuable resource for solution providers navigating a growing cloud vendor marketplace. Solution providers use the guide to identify technology suppliers with groundbreaking cloud offerings and unique partner program benefits across cloud infrastructure and applications. In doing so, they can partner with industry-leading technology vendors to address cloud challenges and drive digital transformation for their customers.

“Finding the right technology vendor to partner with is a major challenge, particularly for solution providers with limited time and resources at their disposal,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “The Cloud Partner Program Guide simplifies the process of researching and identifying the top cloud partner programs. It features comprehensive resources, support, training, and financial incentives, along with an unprecedented list of innovative technology vendors that consistently meet or exceed partners’ expectations.”
