FireMon Ignite Program Awarded CRN 5-Star Rating for Second Straight Year

Proactive Security Intelligence Leader Earns Prestigious Designation for Channel Program Excellence

OVERLAND PARK, KS -- (Marketwired) -- 03/19/14 -- FireMon, the leading provider of proactive security intelligence solutions, today announced that for the second consecutive year, the company has been awarded a 5-Star rating in the CRN 2014 Partner Program Guide. This latest honor closely follows the naming of Vice President of Channels Todd DeBell as a CRN Channel Chief for the third straight year.

An annual directory, the CRN Partner Program Guide is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

FireMon's multitiered Ignite Partner Program is designed to drive business opportunities, increase profitability and deliver high customer satisfaction. In engaging with FireMon, Ignite partners benefit from structured, regional-focused lead generation programs, a resource-rich Partner Portal, market development funds, and training and advanced certification. To further promote channel engagement and ensure greater partner success, FireMon introduced several programmatic enhancements including: more aggressive deal registration with strong upfront margins and deal protection; greater frequency of regional partner events; and expansion of field, inside sales and marketing resources dedicated to channel partners.

"We are honored to be recognized once again as world-class by CRN for fueling the success of our channel community," said DeBell. "FireMon empowers partners with a proactive security intelligence platform that helps detect and close gaps in network defenses before they can be exploited. Security Manager enables partners to automatically visualize and analyze network complexity to help customers identify and eliminate network vulnerabilities, more effectively manage their existing security infrastructure, derive a greater return on their security investments and reduce operational costs."

Delivering best practice-driven continuous assessments, FireMon's flagship Security Manager allows enterprises, federal agencies and MSPs to automate security device management and vulnerability risk analysis by quickly identifying, understanding and managing changes in -- and tracking the historical performance of -- overall security posture. Unlike reactive approaches that log past events, Security Manager enables users to understand configuration, policy and risk exposures in real-time. And integrated, patented risk analysis functionality generates actionable security intelligence to help security professionals focus proactively on closing vulnerabilities that make assets reachable.

To determine the 2014 5-Star recipients, The Channel Company's Research team assessed each vendor's application based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.

"Solution providers have a lot of choices when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor, with the right technologies, and the right approach can make all the difference," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star rating recognizes the very best channel programs available in the market today to help solution providers determine which vendor delivers the best partner elements for their individual business goals."
