|Security Mentor, which provides security awareness training, has launched a Global Partner Program designed to accelerate its growth globally.
The new program is for resellers, distributors and integrators. The inaugural members of the Security Mentor Global Partner Program are in markets throughout the Americas, Southeast Asia, Australia, and the Middle East.
“High visibility data breaches and surging cyber-attacks have demonstrated the importance of securing employees,” said Marie White, CEO and president at Security Mentor. “This is a very exciting time for Security Mentor as we are seeing incredible demand globally for our award-winning security awareness training program. There is a clear need for training that is more than just check the box, it must drives real behavior change. Our new Global Partner Program creates a partner network that will make our cutting-edge training available to customers worldwide who previously we would not be able to reach.”
The Global State of Information Security Survey 2015 by PwC reported that an employee security awareness training program was the top spending priority for organizations over the next 12 months.
“In a breach-ridden and compliance-driven world, end user training has become an essential line of defense,” said Norm Hartshorne, president of channel partner Secure Links. “Adding Security Mentor filled a critical gap in our product portfolio.”
The Security Mentor Partner Program provides partners with the sales tools, marketing and educational support services as well.
“Security Mentor is committed to cultivating and supporting a strong relationship with each partner,” said Craig Kunitani, COO, Security Mentor. “Our goal is to arm Security Mentor partners with the tools they need, and provide a unique competitive edge, in addressing their markets.”
