Digital Guardian Recognized with a 5-Star Rating in the 2020 CRN® Partner Program Guide


Company honored for having one of the IT channel’s top partner programs for the third consecutive year


WALTHAM, Mass. – April 7, 2020 – Digital Guardian today announced it has received a 5-Star rating from CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, in its 2020 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of the most rewarding partner programs from technology companies that provide products and services through the IT channel. The coveted 5-Star rating is awarded to an elite group of companies that offer solution providers the best of the best in their partner programs.

The Channel Company’s research team analyzed each vendor’s partner program to determine the 2020 5-Star ratings. Each was scored based on several factors, including investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication. Based on that assessment, Digital Guardian’s Synergy Partner Program stands among the elite technology suppliers in the IT channel, providing maximum value and support for solution providers.

“With the speed and complexity of technology today, solution providers need partners that can keep pace and support their growing business,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s Partner Program Guide features insight into the strengths and benefits of each company’s program to identify those that truly support and drive positive change within the IT channel.”

Since its introduction five years ago, the Synergy Partner Program has enabled Digital Guardian to become one of the most highly regarded, channel-focused organizations. Synergy’s e-platform allows current partners to enroll in certification programs and receive training anywhere in the world, helping them to sell to customers with confidence. In addition, Synergy provides simplified price lists and business model discounting, offering assurance to new partners of Digital Guardian’s go-to market strategy. As a result of these initiatives, more than 70% of Digital Guardian’s new business is driven through the channel – up from 50% in the 12 months prior.

“Now, more than ever, data protection is paramount to increasingly virtual workforces around the world,” said Troy Gabel, VP of North America Sales and Channel at Digital Guardian. “The channel has been an integral part of our mission to bring our cloud-delivered data protection platform to the market, and we work closely with our channel partners to ensure seamless implementation and deployment. We’re honored to earn CRN’s 5-Star rating for a third year in a row in recognition of our efforts.”
