Infoblox Inc., a cloud-first networking and security company, has launched a new partner program to maximize the opportunities that partners can secure and deliver. The Skilled to Secure trusted partner program reflects the shifting security landscape and customer requirements, as well as the need for security solutions and service providers to adapt in response.
“The rules of cybersecurity have changed. Customers want more than just another security solution or tool – they have dozens, if not hundreds, already. What they want is to drive more value from their current environment by making it more effective. That’s where Infoblox comes in,” explains Chris Millerick, Vice President, Worldwide Partner Sales at Infoblox.
Infoblox BloxOne® is the first cloud-native platform that provides DDI (DNS, DHCP, and IPAM) and DNS data-enabled threat detections, and it provides partners with predictable, dependable renewal margins year after year. According to a Forrester Economic Impact Report, BloxOne® Threat Defense can provide a staggering 243% return on investment.
BloxOne®, when integrated into the security ecosystem, enables the use of DNS data to address blind spots in enterprise threat defense and security systems. Internal and external threats can be identified, prioritized, and remedied in a fraction of the time and with minimal investment in new solutions.
Partners will be assigned levels in the new program based on their acquisition of the competencies required to deliver BloxOne® and maximize its value for customers.
Chris Millerick continued: “We recognize that an exceptional customer experience requires a level of trust, one that only highly skilled and competent technology partners can provide. Infoblox is privileged to offer partners a program that helps them acquire the competencies required to stand out and grow in the cybersecurity market.”
Partner-hunted sales incentives and deal registration, “Guardians of the Network” rewards and incentives, marketing campaigns, marketing development funds, and demonstration software are among the benefits partners can obtain through the new program.
The Skilled to Secure program is structured around three tracks designed to provide channel support: Value-added Reseller and Systems Integrator, Service Provider, and Value-added Distributor. Partners’ awarded level will be announced in May 2023 based on their track record and meeting the defined competency requirements.
“We’re excited about the evolution of our partnership with Infoblox and the opportunity provided by their new professional service certifications,” says Denis Ferrand-Ajchenbaum, SVP Global Business Development & Ecosystems at Exclusive Networks.
