Netsurion Expands Channel Programs to Include SIEM and SD-WAN
Netsurion, a provider of managed network connectivity, security, and compliance solutions, reports that the company is merging its Netsurion and EventTracker channel partner programs having achieved great success, with partner revenue doubling in the first quarter of 2018.
Since the EventTracker partner program’s inception just nine months ago, Netsurion has grown its partner community tenfold. The company designed the expansion of the Netsurion Partner Program to help VARs, sales agents, and MSPs expand their capabilities in such a way that they stand out among their competition. At the close of the first quarter, 2018, the company doubled its partner revenue and now has 100 MSPs successfully employing its software to do just that.
Accelerating the synergy of the two programs is the March release of Netsurion Connect. It integrates SIEM with a unique SD-WAN-based solution to create what is arguably the most tightly secured SD-WAN solution available to merchants and IoT environments.
A major driver of success has been the adoption of Co-Managed SIEM by MSPs. This is an essential component that enables MSPs to deliver effective solutions backed by managed services and support, rather than selling software products that clients cannot master.
The merger of the two programs also enables channel partners to offer customers more comprehensive connectivity, security, and compliance through a combined SD-WAN and SIEM solutions approach. The response has been extremely positive. Netsurion continues to offer managed firewall solutions as well, giving partners more flexibility in how they deliver secure network connectivity to their customers.
The company heads into the second quarter of 2018 with the enhanced channel partner program seeing a surge in momentum as more and more companies are buying into managed solutions rather than just technologies as was previously the case.
