Security provider Webroot Software Inc. has unveiled the global expansion of its Channel Edge Partner Program.
The expansion includes the integration of its Webroot AntiSpyware Corporate Edition with AntiVirus software and its new software as a service (SaaS) security solution, Webroot E-Mail Security SaaS. It also provides new services including Web filtering, e-mail archiving, business continuity and personal encryption for partners.
The expansion of the Webroot Channel Edge Partner Program to include the SaaS security offerings follows the recent launch of Webroot E-mail Security SaaS and Webroot’s successful merger with Email Systems, the company said.
“The tools we offer as part of our partner program are a great motivator for our resellers. No other security provider offers these unique advantages, specifically our System X tool, which allows resellers to identify competitive opportunities in a powerful way,” said Mike Irwin, Webroot COO.
The new Webroot Channel Edge Partner Program offers cost savings and convenience while also delivering an attractive package of benefits and value to resellers wishing to build a strong SaaS security revenue and annuity stream. The program was modeled after the United Kingdom program introduced by Email Systems prior to its merger with Webroot.
Under the new program, resellers will be able to achieve one of three accreditation levels aligned closely with the previous programs to ensure easy and seamless transition of partners. The partnership levels (Associate, Authorized and Premium) are based on individual business needs as well as the number of trained sales and technical staff. Existing Webroot and Email Systems partners will be re-accredited under the new program.
