Malwarebytes Receives CRN 2017 Partner Program Guide 5-Star Rating

Annual guide recognizes the channel’s top partner programs

SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 10, 2017 Malwarebytes™, the leading advanced malware prevention and remediation solution, announced today that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, gave Malwarebytes a 5-Star rating in its 2017 Partner Program Guide. The annual guide is the definitive listing of partner programs from technology vendors that provide products and services through the IT channel. 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.

To determine the 2017 5-Star rating, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each vendor’s partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.

The Malwarebytes Partner Program is a three-tiered system with increasing benefits – Platinum, Gold and Silver. The program was built around three key pillars – innovative technology, profitable growth and a deep commitment to the channel – and designed to provide our channel partners with a full range of resources, tools and support in order to make doing business with Malwarebytes easier and more profitable than ever. Each tier has its own set of technical and sales requirements as well as access to program resources and benefits specifically designed for that membership level.

“For solution providers, finding the right technology vendors to partner with is crucial to the health of their business, and the vast array of choices can be overwhelming,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings help them narrow the field, identifying the most rewarding partner programs and outlining their strengths and benefits.”

“We are pleased to receive a CRN 5-Star partner program rating,” said Roger Cobb, Vice President of Worldwide Channel Sales, Malwarebytes. “This honor is a reflection of our commitment to success and dedication to provide innovative solutions to our valued partners.”

The 2017 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/ppg.
