Check Point said the program was developed in close consultation with hundreds of partners, and it encourages closer alignment with the company’s channel teams while implementing “best practices, speed, agility, time to market and customer value.” The program was announced on the eve of Check Point’s annual CPX360 conference.

“With the program’s new initiatives, we are doubling down on our commitment to helping our partners win new business and build even stronger relationships with existing customers,” he said.
