The star nearest Earth is of course the Sun, although you probably know it as our G2 yellow dwarf. The Sun, actually isn’t the most common type of star in our galaxy, but what is becoming a common occurrence around Barracuda however, is receiving five stars at a time for our Partner Program. In fact, 2016 marks the fourth consecutive year that Barracuda has been recognized by CRN® with a 5-Star rating for its partner program.
Each year, the CRN Partner Program Guide offers detailed information to help solution providers evaluate IT vendor’s partner programs.
“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.”
Here’s a quick video message from Barracuda’s Channel Chief and SVP of Worldwide Sales, Michael Hughes on our five-star partner program recognition, and a few of his thoughts about what’s in store for Barracuda channel partners in the near future.
