Infoblox Inc., a leader in cloud-first networking and security services, unveiled its new partner program today, designed to maximize opportunities partners can secure and deliver. The Skilled to Secure trusted partner program reflects the changing security landscape and shifting customer requirements – and the need for providers of security solutions and services to adapt in response.
“The rules of cybersecurity have changed. Customers want more than just another security solution or tool – they have dozens, if not hundreds, already. What they want is to drive more value from their current environment by making it more effective. That’s where Infoblox comes in,” explains Chris Millerick, Vice President, Worldwide Partner Sales at Infoblox.
Infoblox BloxOne is the first cloud-native platform delivering DDI (DNS, DHCP, and IPAM) and DNS data-enabled threat detections, and offers partners predictable, reliable renewal margins year after year. A Forrester Economic Impact Report found that BloxOne Threat Defense can deliver a staggering 243% return on investment.
Integrated into the security ecosystem, BloxOne enables DNS data to be used to address blind spots in enterprise threat defense and security systems. Internal and external threats can be identified, prioritized, and remediated in a fraction of the time without significant additional investment in new solutions.
In the new program, partners will be assigned levels based on their acquisition of the competencies required to deliver BloxOne and maximize its value for customers.
Chris Millerick continued: “We recognize that an exceptional customer experience requires a level of trust, one that only highly skilled and competent technology partners can provide. Infoblox is privileged to offer partners a program that helps them acquire the competencies required to stand out and grow in the cybersecurity market.”
Benefits partners can gain through the new program include partner-hunted sales incentives and deal registration, “Guardians of the Network” rewards and incentives, marketing campaigns, marketing development funds, and demonstration software.
The Skilled to Secure program is built around three tracks designed to deliver support across the channel: Value-added Reseller and Systems Integrator, Service Provider, and Value-added distributor. Based on their track record and meeting the defined competency requirements, partners’ awarded level will be announced in May 2023.
“We’re excited about the evolution of our partnership with Infoblox and the opportunity provided by their new professional service certifications,” says Denis Ferrand-Ajchenbaum, SVP Global Business Development & Ecosystems at Exclusive Networks.
