AlgoSec Awarded 5-Star Rating in CRN’s 2014 Partner Program Guide

Annual guide recognizes the very best channel partner programs in the market

March 09, 2014

Boston, MA – AlgoSec, the market leader for Security Policy Management, today announced it has been awarded a 5-Star rating in the CRN 2014 Partner Program Guide – the third time AlgoSec has received this distinction. The annual directory is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

Over 90 percent of AlgoSec’s business is conducted through a worldwide network of channel partners. AlgoSec’s channel partners include over 100 leading value-added resellers, distributors and system integrators capable of delivering and supporting each customer’s security and operations objectives.

To determine the 2014 5-Star recipients, The Channel Company’s Research team assessed each vendor’s application based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.

“Solution providers have a lot of choices when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor, with the right technologies, and the right approach can make all the difference,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star rating recognizes the very best channel programs available in the market today to help solution providers determine which vendor delivers the best partner elements for their individual business goals.”

“AlgoSec is honored to be recognized by CRN for this prestigious award,” said Neil McNamara, General Manager Americas at AlgoSec. “Our strategy continues to be successful as we grow and cultivate our channel program for continued success in 2014 and beyond. We are committed to deepening relationships with our existing partner base and enabling them to help customers address the challenges of managing complex security policies that map back to important business decisions.”

In addition to this recognition, AlgoSec’s Brad Canavan has been named one of CRN’s Channel Chiefs for a second consecutive year. The CRN Channel Chiefs is a prestigious list of the most influential and powerful leaders in the IT channel recognizing those executives directly responsible for driving channel sales and growth within their organization.

The 2014 Partner Program Guide will be featured on and the 5-Star Partners listing will be highlighted in the April issue of CRN.
