Lenexa, KS, March 29, 2023 — FireMon, the leading network security policy management company that brings visibility, control, agility, and automation to enterprise cloud and hybrid network infrastructure, has been recognized by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, in its 2023 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide offers essential information to members of the IT channel ecosystem as they explore technology manufacturers’ partner programs to find the vendors that will best support their business needs.
For solution providers such as managed service providers (MSPs), value-added resellers (VARs), systems integrators, and strategic service providers, a critical factor when assessing which IT manufacturers, service providers, and distributors to team with in building world-class technology solutions is the breadth and depth of the partner programs those companies offer. Strong elements such as financial incentives, sales and marketing assistance, training and certification, technical support, and more can set a vendor apart and play a key role in boosting partners long-term growth.
In the 2023 Partner Program Guide, vendors were evaluated based on program requirements and offerings such as partner training and education, pre- and post-sales support, marketing programs and resources, technical support, and communication.
With tens of thousands of resources across multiple clouds, effective security starts by ensuring all those resources and services maintain a strong security posture in accordance with security best practices. Cloud exploits happen in seconds, not minutes. Organizations cannot wait hours or even days for security teams to sift through logs to find high-priority problems and get them to the right team for a quick resolution.
FireMon addresses this by delivering a range of features that include real-time event analysis and intelligent routing of high-priority events and solution recommendations, and one-click remediation options provided with alerts. Its unique automated guardrails ensure security and operational best practices are enforced consistently and continuously. Without these guardrails in place, the scale and complexity inherent in multiple teams managing multiple cloud environments quickly leads to spiraling costs, inconsistent configurations, and increased risk. Using FireMon, organizations benefit from 90% efficiency gains by automating firewall support operations and experience an improvement of more than 90% in response time to globally block malicious actors.
“The channel is the foundation on which our growth is built as the world enters a new era of technology innovation, driven by the rapid cloud adoption of organizations, as they seek to harness becoming more agile, data-driven businesses. But this is placing strain on internal resources to ensure policy and rule management for firewalls and cloud network security groups meet compliance standards while avoiding misconfigurations that can result in costly cybersecurity gaps emerging. The recognition of CRN highlights the work FireMon has done to automate these processes with hundreds of compliance and best practice tools to deliver the continuous risk assessment essential for the modern enterprise,” said Brian Keets, CRO at FireMon.
“In today’s world, the need for innovation is greater than ever,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “Solution providers seek vendors that can keep pace with their developing business and evolving client needs. CRN’s 2023 Partner Program Guide delivers deep insight into the strengths of each program, spotlighting the vendors dedicated to supporting their partner community and pushing positive change throughout the IT channel.”
The 2023 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April 2023 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/PPG.
