When it comes to cybersecurity software, finding the right solution can be a very difficult task, which is especially true for MSPs, resellers, and affiliates who need to cater their offerings to a large variety of customers. Beyond the quality of the software, the partnership with the vendor plays a big role in the solutions being offered, and rightfully so.
With that in mind, PC Matic is honored to be awarded with a 5-star rating in the 2023 CRN Partner Program Guide, reaffirming not just the quality of our Application Allowlisting software, but also the relationship we form with each of our partners.
What is the CRN Partner Program Guide?
In a nutshell, the CRN Partner Program Guide is a collection of the best IT vendors for each year. Organizations need a lot of IT vendors that provide services, software, and digital solutions, and it can be tough to know which IT vendors each business should work with given the complexity of modern digital environments.
The CRN Partner Program Guide cuts through all of that and provides business owners with the best solution providers and strategic service operators in the industry. By reading the Partner Program Guide, businesses can determine which organizations and software they should use to reach their business goals and/or help their customers reach their business goals as well.
More specifically, the CRN Partner Program Guide provides a comprehensive look at:
- What a vendor has to offer to help partners be more successful in their chosen endeavors. This includes margins, financial incentives, training and certifications, and more
- The reputation of each IT vendor, and why they have received a high rating from the CRN organization overall
In essence, the CRN Partner Program Guide is intended to assist with evaluating which IT vendors a business should align with, not just for the best product, but also for a mutually beneficial partnership. Each year, the guide comes out with a fresh batch of ratings and information. Every new guide is based on detailed applications that are submitted by over 300 vendors and solutions providers.
PC Matic has appeared on the CRN Partner Program Guide previously across several years, and our 5-star rating in 2023 is an indication of the dedication we provide to helping each of our partners.
What Are 5-Star Ratings?
Five-star ratings, also called profiles, are the highest-rated vendor channel programs that CRN was able to find. These are programs that offer comprehensive, high-quality collections of training, services, incentives, and benefits. In other words, they are the best of the best and businesses would do well to pay attention to, and consider partnering with, five-star-rated providers.
Reasons PC Matic Received a 5-Star Rating
