Earlier this week, GFI Software announced the premiere of a new channel partner program focused on helping current and prospective partners better understand the company’s cloud-based solutions. This program will be running from now until November 2013, and will feature a new aspect of the GFI Cloud solution each month.
Current topics for review include antivirus, mobile worker management, content/Web filtering, patch management and server management.
“Cloud solutions are an important opportunity for the channel that generates both healthy up-front revenues and recurring business. The success our existing partners are having with GFI Cloud is a clear indicator that the channel community is key to the success of cloud solutions for the wider industry and that cloud doesn’t mean direct sales only,” explained Scott Hagenus, Director of Channel for GFI Software, in a press release sent to SMB Nation. “Our new cloud partner program will deliver a three-figure increase in cloud resellers and will provide both current and new reseller partners with tools, incentives and support to help them drive cloud sales and integrate GFI’s cloud solutions alongside their existing physical product lines.”
