In addition to the Network Computing Awards, and on the heals of Alex Thurber, WatchGuard’s vice president of sales, recently being named one of CRN’s 50 Most Influential Channel Chiefs, WatchGuard was also awarded a 5-Star Rating in CRN‘s 2014 Partner Program Guide.
The rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partner elements in the channel programs. To determine the 5-Star recipients, CRN’s research team assessed each vendor’s application based on investment in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.
