'Key to our success as an enabler of the channel is that we are a pure software supplier with a 100% channel-focused business model,' said Eran Farajun, Executive Vice President, Asigra. 'We do not run, host, or operate backup service vaults of any kind which is a common practice with many backup and recovery vendors. Instead, we are committed to delivering solutions solely to and through our channel partners and believe that long-term business relationships based on shared ideals for sustainable growth are critical for success.'
In building the list, UBM Channel Research developed a methodology in which vendors are assessed on information provided through submitted applications and reviewed by the CRN editorial team. The objective criteria takes into account each vendor's investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.
Asigra's Hybrid Partner Program enables partners to streamline backup service delivery while speeding time-to-revenue with improved margins. The company's zero-conflict channel program is designed to level the playing field, allowing its diverse group of VAR, MSP and cloud service provider partners of any size to achieve top benefits based on contributions related to revenue growth, prospective sales opportunities, technical expertise, and Asigra 'brand ambassadorship' to promote awareness in the partner's own community.
'The companies listed in CRN's 2012 Partner Programs Guide represent a comprehensive list of the best channel programs in the market today,' said Kelley Damore, VP and Editorial Director, for UBM Channel's CRN. 'The 5-star award is reserved for vendors that understand that a successful partnership does not rely solely on the technology. By offering their partners tools, education and regular updates, vendors on this list go above and beyond traditional support to ensure a mutually beneficial partnership.'
