Around RSA

Don't Settle for Less than 5 Stars

May 18, 2016 | by Holly Rollo, CMO |

Booking a vacation to the Caribbean? You would want to stay at a 5-star resort, right? Planning a celebratory dinner? A 5-star restaurant would be a great choice. So when it comes to aligning your business with a partner that can best suit your needs, why settle for anything less?

CRN, part of The Channel Company, recently announced that it has awarded RSA SecurWorld a 5-Star rating in its 2016 Partner Program Guide. Just like that 5-star resort or restaurant, RSA strives to meet our entire customers'- and in this case, partners' - needs. This Partner Program Guide is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers and/or provide products through the IT channel. This 5-Star rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

RSA SecurWorld is designed to benefit both RSA and partners by offering greater incentives for partners committed to selling RSA solutions and those that are willing to invest in the relationship with RSA.

Ratings for this elite award were determined based on a number of criteria including: investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication. RSA's Global Partner team has worked tirelessly to maximize our impact in these areas.

This hard work and dedication has also been widely recognized. RSA's Christine Bufalini has recently been named once again to CRN's Women of the Channel list in addition to being named to the Power 100 which recognizes women who have earned a special distinction based on their exemplary record of success and their level of influence in the channel. Her extensive knowledge and experience in the channel has shaped the partner program to its award-winning status. (Take a look at our announcement!)

Since the SecurWorld partner program began back in 2004, when RSA was only selling our RSA SecurID two factor authentication tokens through the channel, RSA has consistently expanded its portfolio of solutions and partners' capabilities to include award-winning products that allow organizations to effectively detect, investigate, and respond to advanced attacks; confirm and manage identities; and ultimately, reduce IP theft, fraud, and cybercrime.

RSA is dedicated to its partners. In fact, RSA is the preferred security partner for more than 90 percent of Fortune 500 companies!

One thing is clear, our partners are vital to our business and our global partner teams will continue to strive for excellence when it comes to serving our partners.
