Chelmsford, Mass. – April 11, 2016 – Intronis MSP Solutions by Barracuda, provider of backup and data protection solutions for managed service providers, today announced it earned a 5-Star rating in the 2016 Partner Program Guide published by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company. The win marks the fourth consecutive year the channel favorite has earned its place among an elite sub-set of organizations included in the CRN Partner Program Guide.
Each year The Channel Company’s research team determines 5-Star ratings by assessing vendors’ applications to the Partner Program Guide. They evaluate vendors based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication. Details about the Intronis’ 5-Star 2016 Partner Program is available online and in the April issue of CRN.
“We are honored to once again be recognized by CRN for our partner program excellence,” said Rick Faulk, vice president and general manager, MSP Solutions, at Barracuda. “The continued investments we are making in our portfolio, programs, and people are making it easier for our partners to offer a total solution that businesses can rely on. The IT channel is our direct sales force, and we are committed to their success, which makes an award like this all the more valuable and inspiring.”
During 2015, Intronis’ partner enablement efforts included the addition of new features and functionality to the Intronis ECHOplatform, including a crisp new dashboard, a responsive and intuitive user interface, and an expanded set of business reporting tools. Intronis also enhanced the Intronis Partner Toolkit, an online resource hub designed to enable partners to effectively market, sell, and support Intronis solutions. With these enhancements and an established track record for product reliability and service excellence, the organization continues to transform the partner experience.
“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.”
The 2016 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/ppg2016.
