SonicWALL Launches Managed Service Provider Specialization
As part of a so-called Channel 2.0 partner program, SonicWALL has launched a managed service provider specialization for its solutions providers. I’m hardly surprised: More than 40 percent of managed service providers sell, service or support SonicWALL security solutions, according to MSPmentor’s research.
According to the SonicWALL Channel 2.0 press release:
“The new SonicWALL MSP Specialization is designed to meet the needs of partners selling full managed security services. Today, a “security-as-a-service” model provides higher levels of protection for the client, while generating predictable, ongoing revenue streams for the SonicWALL partner.
The new MSP Specialization meets the unique needs of these partners, offers the opportunity to realize enhanced profit margins on select security service and software SKUs, and provides priority access to SonicWALL’s most elite, Level 3 technical support engineers.”
I’m not out to “endorse” SonicWALL, but the company has definitely carved out a niche with managed service providers. According to our latest MSPmentor 100 survey results, 41.8 percent of survey participants sell, service or support SonicWALL as part of their MSP portfolio. (Complete MSPmentor 100 survey results will debut in February.)
If anyone gives the SonicWALL MSP specialization a try, let us know. We’d love to hear more about your experiences.
