Silver Peak wins 5-start rating in CRN’s directory

DUBAI, April 28, 2015

Silver Peak, a leader in building software-defined WANs (SD-WAN), has won a five-star rating in The Channel Company’s (CRN) 2017 Partner Program Guide.

This annual directory is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products through the IT channel, said a statement.

The five-Star Partner Program rating recognises an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programmes.

As new and innovative technology are created to help bring flexibility and savings to the wide area network (WAN), partners have new opportunities to help their customers build new, cutting-edge solutions, it said.

The programme ensures that global partners are fully equipped with the tools necessary to be valuable resources to customers, including sales, marketing, and training material to capitalise on new WAN market opportunities.

As part of the programme, Silver Peak offers technical training and Silver Peak Certified Technical Partner Certification at no additional cost.

These programmes provide comprehensive courses and online curriculums to educate partner engineers on Silver Peak’s technology and products, key WAN fundamentals, best practices for identifying new opportunities, and running a successful proof-of-concept for WAN optimisation.

Bob Bruce, senior vice president of worldwide channel sales for Silver Peak, said: “Receiving the 5-Star Rating from CRN is an exceptional milestone in the growth and evolution of Silver Peak’s global partner programme.

“As the demands for the WAN evolve, Silver Peak has been focused on addressing the dynamic and varied needs for our channel partners. This five-star rating from CRN affirms our commitment to innovation and providing our partners with new opportunities to grow their business.”

To determine the 2015 five-star recipients, The Channel Company’s Research team assessed each vendor’s application based on investments in programme offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.

Robert Faletra, chief executive officer, The Channel Company, said: “Solution providers have a lot of choices when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor, with the right technologies, and the right approach can make all the difference.

“Our annual Partner Program Guide and five-star rating recognises the best channel programs available in the market today to help solution providers determine which vendors deliver the best partner elements for their individual business goals.” - TradeArabia News Service
