Symantec Corp is rolling out an enhanced channel partner program designed to help security-focused partners grow their businesses. Symantec Secure One offers partners the ability to unlock higher earning potential through simplified competency and certification requirements, while including a more predictable, profitable Growth Accelerator Rebate. A new distributor program, designed to support and accelerate partner growth, will also be included under the Secure One umbrella.
“With an increased focus on cybersecurity and a strengthened portfolio aimed squarely at solutions that address today’s most sophisticated attackers, we’re rolling out Symantec Secure One to enable our partners to leverage our products and services to grow their businesses,” said John Thompson, Global Senior Vice President of Partner and Channel Sales, Symantec. “At its core, the enhanced program provides our partners with a clear path to take advantage of the innovation and growth we expect to drive as the world’s largest cyber security company.”
Secure One Highlights:
- Higher earning potential – Our Growth Accelerator Rebate (GAR) sets one goal on net new business and pays out from the first transaction. Once a partner reaches the Platinum tier in any of the Integrate competencies (Threat Protection, Information Protection or Cyber Security Services), partners participate in a predictable, profitable GAR across the entire security portfolio, including Core Security
- Get paid faster – Partners don’t have to wait until the end of the year, which translates into quicker cash flow. Plus, the earning opportunity in quarter is 50% higher than before
- Easier achievements – It’s easier than ever for partners to achieve Platinum status. We’ve streamlined specific requirements (technical validation, customer references, sales certification requirements), so that our partners can earn revenue faster and with fewer hurdles
Reiterating the company’s commitment to security-focused partners in India through the newly enhanced partner program, Shrikant Shitole, Managing Director, India, Symantec said “Partners continue to be critical to our business in India, and we want to bring them along with us as we make serious investments designed to accelerate growth. The new program will make it easier for our partners to earn more with fewer hurdles.”
