WatchGuard launches global technology partner program

Network security firm WatchGuard has launched a Technology Partner Program to support tech companies that integrate their products with WatchGuard’s security solutions, and will be branded under the WatchGuardONE Partner Ecosystem.

“Together with our Technology Partners, WatchGuard is delivering powerful network security solutions that enable businesses around the world to better protect their most important assets,” says Ryan Orsi, WatchGuard director of strategic alliances.

“Our program provides tremendous value for companies that integrate with our products, and most importantly, our customers reap the benefits with more robust and easier-to-deploy solutions.”

The program will have three tiers to provide flexibility based on partner commitment, and will offer partners technical, marketing and sales support.

Charlie Sander, CEO of ManagedMethods, says their partnership with Watchguard opens new avenues for the company.

“[The partnership] provides our customers with a clear choice in Unified Threat Management,” Sander says. “We look forward to promoting our solutions alongside an industry leader in network security and building a trusted partnership for years to come.” WatchGuard says it will share more information about its Technology Partner Program and reveal new partnerships at upcoming industry events.
