Forcepoint Rolls Out New Global Partner Program
Forcepoint has unveiled a new global partner program designed so partners can offer integrated solutions and help customers capitalize on the benefits of digital transformation.
The partner program was announced at Forcepoint’s latest partner event in Dubai.
Earlier this year, Forcepoint rolled out its new Converged Security Platform, which enables secure migration of data, applications and business operations to the cloud. The first offering available on the new platform, Dynamic Edge Protection, will allow enterprises to transform their network and security architectures with connectivity to take full advantage of the cloud across distributed application and network environments.
Oni Chakravartti, Forcepoint’s global vice president of channel sales, tells us the new program will benefit North American partners. The program was formulated to drive “tighter engagement with partners and foster frictionless channel engagement,” he said.
“Digital transformation offers huge opportunities but also presents great challenges, and by enabling our partners to assist CISOs to manage network security centrally, in a dynamic and multicloud manner, we know we are setting them up for great success,” he said.
The new program includes three partner tiers instead of four, as well as new deal registration for all three tiers, a new certification program, and a platinum growth goal rebate.
“The program was developed in collaboration and feedback from the partners,” Chakravartti said.
Simplification is a major theme of Forcepoint‘s new program with fewer tiers and an “easy certification process,” he said.
“Partners can move to [a] higher tier within a quarter if they drive revenue and certification,” Chakravartti said. “No need to wait 12 months to move up the tiers for benefits.”
Last month, Forcepoint announced the opening of its new Cyber Experience Center in Boston, which will serve as a cyber innovation and development center for the company as it responds to demand for human-centric security globally.
