Calling all resellers, integrators, distributors, managed service providers — the new Ziften Activate Partner Program is here, it’s ready, and it’s going to be great for your bottom line (and for lowering your customers’ anxiety about cybersecurity).

Ziften is 100% focused on the channel, and as we grow and evolve in the market, we know that your success is our success – and that our success is your success. And it shows: 96% of our sales in 2017 were through the channel! That’s why we built the new Activate Partner Program to give you the resources you need to grow your business with Ziften security solutions.

We came out of the blocks with a powerful, cross-platform Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) platform, Ziften Zenith. Customers love it. Technology Partners love it. Resellers love it. The industry loves it. And analysts love it – read this detailed report from Broadband-Testing.

I have to share this from that Broadband-Testing report’s conclusion, which talks about SysSecOps, or Systems Security Operations – an emerging category where Ziften is a market leader:

Key to Ziften’s endpoint approach in this category is total visibility - after all, how can you secure what you can’t see or don’t know is there in the first place? With its Zenith platform, Ziften has a product that ticks all the SysSecOps boxes and more… Overall, Ziften has a very competitive offering in what is a very valid, emerging IT category in the form of SysSecOps and one that must be on the evaluation short-list

By the way: Microsoft recently partnered with Ziften to create an integration between Zenith and Microsoft Windows Defender ATP, to allow Microsoft customers to secure Linux and Mac systems with the same single pane of glass as they use to secure Windows systems.

Enough about us. Let’s talk about you. You and the Activate Partner Program.

We’ve put together a multi-tier partner program that has better discounts, more resources, and strong market development support. We know a one-size-fits-all program doesn’t work, not in today’s market.

With Activate, we take a hands-on approach to onboarding new partners; making it easy for those for whom security is a relatively small part of your business; and rewarding top-tier partners who have committed to Ziften.

Here’s what you get with the Activate Partner Program – and we’ll work with you to ensure that Activate fits your needs perfectly:

  • Security for more of your customer’s environment – endpoints, servers, and cloud
  • Visibility and security for your customer’s complex, multi-cloud deployments
  • Simple security tool integrations to deliver truly custom, differentiated solutions
  • Hands-on, personalized support and life-cycle expertise
  • Rich financial incentives that encourage your long-term investment and reward on-going success
  • Market development assistance to drive incremental demand and lead generation
  • World-class, hands-on support from our field sales, sales engineers, technical support, and marketing experts

The Activate program combines our successful security solutions, financial investments, and hands-on assistance to help you create more opportunity and close more deals.

Everyone wins.

Ziften is totally channel focused, and we will work toward our mutual success. Contact me, and let’s review the opportunities offered by Ziften’s new Activate channel program. We can do this!
