Bitdefender included in annual guide recognizing industry-leading cloud technology vendors with innovative partner programs.

Bitdefender, a leading global cybersecurity company protecting over 500 million systems worldwide, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Bitdefender in its 2020 Cloud Partner Program Guide for the sixth consecutive year. This annual guide identifies industry-leading cloud technology vendors with innovative partner programs that empower and accelerate the growth of solution providers’ cloud initiatives.

The Bitdefender global Partner Advantage Network (PAN) is tailored to support each partner type in the most effective way. The company introduced new components to its PAN within the last year, helping resellers and service providers to develop their business, extend services, and simplify operational aspects focusing on selling Bitdefender solutions that match their own specializations. Its revamped MSP program offers well-structured incentives, opportunities for increased profitability, and accelerated return on investment (ROI) to all cloud selling partners. Partners are also entitled to many benefits including sales and marketing tools, aggregated tiered base pricing, leads program, competitive certifications, and hands-on training.

“Bitdefender is truly a channel-first company, and we’re honored that our commitment to the channel has once again been recognized by CRN. Together we are stronger!” said Raluca Avram, Sr. Manager of Worldwide Partner Program at Bitdefender. “Constant innovation with a sharp focus on benefits for partners is our number one priority, and we’re dedicated to ensuring the ease of doing business with us.”

The Cloud Partner Program Guide is a practical map for solution providers navigating the ever-changing cloud landscape, helping them to locate technology suppliers with ground-breaking cloud offerings and partner programs. To meet the requirements for inclusion, vendors must have unique partner program benefits that address critical challenges in cloud infrastructure or applications.

“With so many cloud options available today, solution providers may find it tough to find the vendor that best complements their unique business strategy,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The Cloud Partner Program Guide identifies the vendor partners with a strong combination of technology, training, support, and financial incentives to help cloud initiatives succeed.”

The 2020 Cloud Partner Program Guide can be viewed online at Additional coverage will be featured in the October issue of CRN Magazine.
