Viptela Launches Global Partner Program for SD-WAN

Viptela has launched the vForce Global Partner Program.

The program offers a suite of go-to-market support, financial incentive and training resources to enable solution and managed service providers to deliver the business benefits of SD-WAN to global enterprises.

To date, more than 40 partners from around the world have joined the program including: Dimension Data, World Wide Technology (WWT), Forsythe Solutions Group, Logicalis, Fishtech Labs, Teneo, Alphaserve Technologies, Vandis, Daymark Solutions, ProSys and Verizon.

The Viptela SD-WAN solution delivers secure end-to-end network virtualization in the WAN. The solution provides enterprise grade routing, security, centralized policy and orchestration capabilities. It enables a security foundation for the enterprise network too, and removes the major challenges associated with cloud migration to IaaS and SaaS.

The vForce Global Partner Program enables solution providers to capitalize on a rapidly emerging and compelling market opportunity. As cloud and mobile services proliferate, traditional networks have struggled to keep pace with the rising demands and expectations of the business. According to Gartner analyst Andrew Lerner, “by the end of 2019, 30% of enterprises will have deployed SD-WAN technology in their branches, up from less than 1% today.”

“As SD-WAN adoption crosses the chasm, we’re committed to helping our vForce partners capitalize on this disruptive opportunity and drive the next phase of our growth,” said James Winebrenner, vice president of worldwide sales, Viptela. “Our partners will play a vital role in enabling enterprise SD-WAN transformation, helping customers deploy, scale and ensure ongoing success with our solutions.”

“Unlike legacy vendors that make it hard for solution providers to engage and make money, we’ve designed the Viptela vForce Global Partner Program to eliminate common obstacles with easy onboarding, clearly differentiated deal registration and assured margins,” added Anthony D’Angelo, vice president of worldwide channel sales, Viptela. “We put our partners first by focusing on how to help them grow their business. Unlike outdated, vendor-centric approaches, vForce doesn’t require upfront investment or include complex partner-tiering.”
