WhiteHat Security Featured in CRN’s 2019 Partner Program Guide

Annual guide recognizes the IT channel’s top partner programs

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 1, 2019 – WhiteHat Security, the leading application security provider committed to securing digital business, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given WhiteHat a 5-Star rating in its 2019 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide identifies the strongest and most successful partner programs in the channel today, offered by the top technology suppliers for IT products and services. The 5-Star rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

To determine the 2019 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each supplier’s partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication.

The WhiteHat Security Partnership Program is designed from the partner perspective to provide DevSecOps training that is relevant to their business and profitability models. Because the program enables partners to build out a strong application security practice quickly, they are able to realize strong gross profits in a short time period. The program includes support across the entire sales cycle, from education and training to marketing and post-sales support.

“With new technologies emerging every year, evaluating which IT vendors to partner with grows increasingly more complex for solution providers,” said Bob Skelley, CEO, The Channel Company. “We are proud the CRN Partner Program Guide has become the trusted resource to identify the most rewarding partner programs and provides crucial insight into their strengths and benefits for the channel.”

“It’s our honor to be recognized by CRN as a 5-Star Partner Program,” said John Atkinson, vice president of Partnerships at WhiteHat Security. “We empower our partners with information and competitive solutions that enable them to help their customers build and run secure applications. This 5-Star rating recognizes how we work alongside our partners to help them increase their value and grow their business. It acknowledges our commitment to our partners and the channel.”

The 2019 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at
