Tufin® (NYSE: TUFN), a company pioneering a policy-centric approach to security and IT operations, today announced a new, streamlined approach to its worldwide partner program. The new structure helps both Tufin and its partners better support sophisticated enterprise infrastructures and cloud deployments, facilitate partner profitability through enhanced incentives, and expand new business opportunities.
Tufin’s updated program consists of two reseller tiers – Gold and Authorized – offering a variety of benefits designed to promote and encourage increased engagement activity, such as the development of technical pre- and post-sales expertise, new deliverables, and new incentives for incremental business opportunities.
“Tufin’s new program delivers simplification and more resources to partners than ever before,” said Mike Menegay, vice president of global channels at Tufin. “Through improved incentives, programs and increased field resources, our partners have an even greater opportunity to become the beneficiaries of Tufin’s continued growth, while Tufin benefits from the partners’ extended reach and technical expertise to support our customers’ increasingly complex and highly dynamic environments.”
Additional elements of the new Tufin Partner Program include:
- Service Delivery: Expansion of the Tufin Service Delivery Partner (SDP) Program provides high-level certifications, virtual bench capacity, and expanded instructor-led trainings throughout the world.
- MSSP Expansion: Tufin’s consumption based MSSP offering for managed service providers is available worldwide.
- New Deal Registrations: Improved partner incentives for opening incremental opportunities with new Tufin customers.
- New US Federal Partner Program: Expansion of Tufin’s market leadership with the formalized entry of Tufin into the U.S. Federal and SLED markets, supported by Tufin’s new U.S. Federal organization and authorized U.S. Government Partner Program.
- Technical Alliance Expansion: Extending technology integrations and services opportunities through the Tufin Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) Program with key industry vendors.
- Cloud Business Unit: Creation of a new business unit focusing on the cloud-native application market with increased opportunities for partner participation and expansion.
“Tufin’s approach to a Unified Security Policy framework across network and cloud-native environments separates it from all others in respect to policy-centric security and IT management,” said Sam Goodman, president, G2 Deployment Advisors, a key Tufin Gold Services Delivery Partner (SDP). “By combining its industry-leading technology with a straightforward Partner Program that incents, protects, trains and provides business opportunities, Tufin makes it clear they are the best vendor in its market to be associated with.”
