Washington, D.C. – April 10, 2017 – Thycotic, provider of privileged access management (PAM) solution for more than 7,500 organization worldwide, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given Thycotic a 5-Star rating in its 2017 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of partner programs from technology vendors that provide products and services through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program Guide rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
To determine the 2017 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each vendor’s partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.
Thycotic’s Certified Partners program is shaped by 180,000 high qualified IT administrator users, whom manage and support its computer system and networks for customers and partners worldwide. The program offers deal registration, rewards incentive and a margin protection program as well. Thycotic’s Deal Registration Program gives Thycotic Channel Partners a way to protect their opportunities, and maximize available discounts. Thycotic Rewards is a flexible program that allows the company to help its partners get started with introducing Thycotic, get trained and close business, and Thycotic’s Deal Registration Program also includes margin protection. Many of the benefits associated with Thycotic Rewards have been extended to partner marketing programs, thus helping to create a groundswell of new opportunity creation for participating partners.
“Our goal is to offer our partners as many benefits as possible to make their lives easier,” said Bob Gagnon, Vice President of Channel Sales for the Americas. “Earning the 5-Star rating in the 2017 Partner Program Guide recognizes the effort that we as a company have put forth to support and maintain our partnerships each day.”
“For solution providers, finding the right technology vendors to partner with is crucial to the health of their business, and the vast array of choices can be overwhelming,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings help them narrow the field, identifying the most rewarding partner programs and outlining their strengths and benefits.”
The 2017 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/ppg.
