WatchGuard Expands its Partner Program

WatchGuard Technologies has expanded its WatchGuardONE partner program, featuring multiple paths of entry into partnership via individual specializations in network security, secure Wi-Fi and MFA.

Each specialization has its own unique set of knowledge-based requirements, including sales and technical training. According to the company, partners that attain specialization in just one product family can achieve full WatchGuardONE status, including financial incentives and sales, marketing and technical support, without revenue thresholds or product portfolio adoption requirements.

WatchGuardONE specializations build on the success of the company’s existing value-based program, minimizing barriers to entry and ensuring maximum return on investment to make it easier than ever for partners to do business with WatchGuard.

The program expansion comes on the heels of the launch of the WatchGuard Cloud platform, which reduces infrastructure costs, accelerates customer acquisition and minimizes time spent on administrative tasks by centralizing partners’ security management and reporting within a single cloud-based interface.

Additionally, WatchGuard offers extensive integrations with industry-leading remote monitoring and management (RMM) and professional services automation solutions like ConnectWise, Autotask, Tigerpaw and SolarWinds.

These integrations enable partners to better manage their businesses with streamlined access to automated reporting, inventory management, help desk tasks, invoicing, ticket management and more.
