The Netsurion Partner Program is geared toward point-of-sale (POS) resellers and retail technology providers. The updated program aims to help resellers grow sales and offer new services to increase their clients’ business value, the company said.

Guy Cunningham, Netsurion’s vice president of alliances, tells Channel Partners that whether it’s a change in technology, such as moving from dial-up landline modems to 4G for backup communications, a change in compliance requirements or a change in the cybersecurity landscape, his company is “committed to making improvements to our product offerings to keep ahead of customer demands.”

“We also wanted to streamline the partner experience, which prompted the additional functionality in our partner portal,” he said. “Now it’s even easier to register deals and submit orders.”

Cunningham also is vice president of alliances at EventTracker, a SIEM vendor acquired by Netsurion last fall. EventTracker launched its partner program last month.

SIEM-at-the-Edge, a managed threat detection and response offering, and automatic cellular failover, to detect network disruptions and switch traffic to 4G cellular, now are available for Netsurion partners to resell to their customers.

“The new product offerings provide our partners with the ability to offer a broader set of services that deepen their ‘trusted adviser’ relationship with their customers,” Cunningham said.

Netsurion’s partner account management team continues to grow. In addition to reseller partnerships, the partner program now provides referral opportunities for payment processors, merchant service providers, and ISOs that do not directly deal in IT services, but have interest in ensuring merchants’ payment networks are secured.

“Netsurion’s channel partners are a strategic path to our continued growth as a company,” Cunningham said. “We rely upon our partners to not only represent our products to their customers, but to also provide us feedback on what the overall market is looking for from a solutions perspective. Netsurion will continue to invest in new products and enhancements to our partner program that make it easier for partners to offer much needed solutions to their customers from a single trusted vendor.”
