Code42, developers of award-winning, private and public cloud-based endpoint backup solutions for consumers, businesses and the enterprise, today announced its new, worldwide Summit Partner Program. The comprehensive new program arms technology solution providers and advisors with the tools needed to effectively sell Code42 solutions and services to any size organization.
Code42 Chief Operating Officer Brian Bell—who twice was named a “Channel Chief” by CRN due to his significant experience creating effective channel programs—leads the new initiative.
“Solution providers are a key component of Code42’s overall growth strategy and continued success as a leader in the enterprise endpoint backup arena,” said Bell. “The Summit Partner Program is designed to help partners enhance their client relationships while driving bottom-line growth through new revenue streams. We believe our new program really stands out from others due to its dedicated sales team, the ongoing support we provide to our partners and the benefits they receive from our subscription-based software licensing model.”
Several top North American solution providers already have joined the program, including Cambridge Computer, Capital Data, Datalink and Winslow Technology Group. The Summit Partner Program also is active in Europe and Asia, contributing to Code42’s strong international growth.
“We’ve partnered with Code42 for some time now,” said Scott Winslow, president of Winslow Technology Group, a Boston-based provider of “better IT solutions.” “I can vouch that the partner program is run by a true team of professionals who really understand the value of the channel. We’re confident the support Code42 provides to build a go-to-market plan and train our team will help Winslow quickly increase our client base and generate recurring revenue for our company.”
Code42’s Summit Partner Program features two participation levels differentiated by market size and the program’s commitment requirements: Enterprise Partners and Agents. Each level offers dedicated program elements and resources for delivering Code42 solutions and services.
“We fully expect to deliver even greater value to our clients through this new program from Code42,” said Tim LaMalfa, vice president of sales for Capital Data, a leading IT provider of customized, data-centric solutions. “We were very pleased to close our first large CrashPlan enterprise deal within 45 days of signing on as a Code42 partner. Not only is CrashPlan a world-class solution, Code42 is a world-class partner.”
“Our Summit Partner Program offers solution providers a unique combination of benefits,” said Ryan Gruening, director of channel sales for Code42. “More and more businesses today want flexible, cloud-based solutions to back up and protect data stored on laptops and desktops. CrashPlan enables our partners to quickly win enterprise deals and deliver added value to their current clients with what we believe is absolutely the best solution available on the market.”

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
