CyberArk Drives Channel Partner Programme Growth

 CyberArk is embarking on a series of Channel Partner Program initiatives.

CyberArk is making substantial Channel Partner Program investments in strategic areas such as expanding key routes to market, investing in new ways to enhance collaboration and programme efficiency, while continuing to improve the overall partner experience. CyberArk also continues to enhance training and offer new certifications to deepen partner knowledge.

“Over the past several years, there has been a rise of indiscriminate attacks – those that go after ‘everyone.’  MSPs like blueAPACHE are able to respond to growing demand for Identity-centric solutions with the talent and experience organisations need to proactively drive down risk,” said Michael Zuppa, general manager of technology, blueAPACHE. “We have built a successful business with the CyberArk Identity Security Platform at the core. CyberArk is easy to do business with and is critical to us being able to expand our market footprint and deliver best-in-class cybersecurity solutions, centred on Identity Security.”

CyberArk has taken strategic steps to maximise the economies of scale afforded by a growing number of marketplaces from major software vendors and other ecosystems. Marketplaces represent a large and efficient mechanism for customers to purchase and implement security software using a simple, streamlined user experience.

Additionally, global systems integrators and advisory partners represent the largest opportunity for incremental growth and are engaged in almost all of CyberArk’s key deals. CyberArk has added sales coverage and resources for enablement and marketing and is leveraging investments with alliances like Deloitte, PwC and others to deliver more to deliver more joint offerings and better services strategies.

Advancements planned for the CyberArk partner portal will improve deal transparency and provide access to deeper data and analytics. Expanded enablement content and tools will help partners consistently deliver best-in-class solutions and will be supported using new “centres of excellence” in areas such as marketing, opportunity management and partner relationship management.

Enhancements around enablement also include specific learning plans for sales, pre-sales and technical certifications, which are designed to engage and reward partners to better support mutual customers, be more influential in their decision making and more focused on delivering services. Additionally, a newly expanded Partner Advisory Council designed to reinforce a “global approach with a regional touch” now better aligns with partners specifically committed to CyberArk’s Identity Security vision.

“With over 350 attendees at Partner Day, which kicked off the recent CyberArk Impact 2022 event, we rolled out a number of exciting initiatives to help our partners worldwide build, sustain and grow successful Identity Security programmess,” said Chris Moore, senior vice president, global channels, CyberArk. “One of the keys to that growth is enabling partners to evolve from a ‘value capture’ to ‘value creation’ approach. For those partners with the commitment and capability to drive our approach to Identity Security, we help them create more value with programmatic building blocks including enablement, incentives and marketing.”
