Designation Spotlights an Elite Subset of
Partner Programs in the IT Channel

ESET®, a global pioneer in proactive protection for more than two decades, announced today that Computer Reseller News (CRN), awarded ESET’s Partner Program with a 5-Star rating in its 2016 Partner Program Guide for the second consecutive year.

The 5-Star Partner Program Guide rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs. The ESET Partner Program boasts U.S.-based technical and marketing support, generous Marketing Development Funds (MDF) available to all partners regardless of size. In addition, ESET’s program offers Volume Incentive Rebates, a Stackable Margins Program as well as free sales and technical certifications.

“We are thrilled to be recognized by CRN two years in a row for our exceptional channel program,” said ESET North America Vice President of Sales Gerald Choung. “It validates our commitment to our channel partners and the resources we allocate to help them succeed. Partners find that we offer not only a superb set of cybersecurity solutions, but also the resources that allow them to be more effective.”

To determine partner program ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each vendor’s application based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.

“Solution providers have more choices than ever before when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor with the right technologies and the right channel approach can mean the difference between successful adoption of a new technology or business model and an awkward, unnecessarily difficult integration,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings recognize the best channel programs available in the market today and serve as a valuable resource for solution providers looking for the right fit.”

For 30 years, CRN has provided editorial coverage that has helped solution providers make informed decisions on products and programs that they rely on. The 2016 Partner Program Guide is featured in the February issue of CRN and online at
