The number of security-focused channel partners that now carry Bit9’s solutions as part of their portfolio has grown over 200 percent in the past 12 months, with more partners joining every month.

Bit9 is teaming with select, security-focused channel partners to meet partner and customer demand. The SRP program enables solution providers to modernize and enhance their security solution portfolios and services with Bit9’s Advanced Threat Protection platform. Bit9 combats today’s most serious enterprise IT cyber security threats to the protection of intellectual property (IP) with a highly effective trust-based approach.

Bit9 has welcomed almost 20 new members from North America into its partner program including:

  • Contego
  • DigiVera
  • Exultium
  • The Experts
  • Fishnet
  • immixGroup
  • InfoPath

“Reflective of the strong demand for Bit9’s Advanced Threat Protection platform, we are seeing a dramatic increase in reciprocal deal flow,” said Doug Cahill, vice president of business development at Bit9. “As true trusted advisors to enterprise accounts, our solution provider partners play a central role in the customer engagement cycle with both Bit9 and our partners driving incremental business for each other, the basis for strong mutually beneficial partnerships.”

For decades, the security industry has been chasing an infinite list of malicious software and creating a denylist to prevent them from running. This reactive approach is not enough, as evidenced by the volume of high-profile data breaches still taking place. Today, enterprises are faced with exponential growth in IP theft, advanced persistent threats (APTs) and other sophisticated malware. Solution providers are seeking to add new technologies to their portfolios that overcome the limitations of legacy denylisting solutions. The new SRP program fills this void and brings the latest in Advanced Threat Protection to value added resellers (VARs).

Bit9’s channel partners are focused on being security solution experts and are committed to providing the solutions and the support necessary to help its partners satisfy their clients’ needs.

New benefits of Bit9’s SRP program include:

  • New technical certification track to enable partners to capture high margin services revenue
  • Improved partner portal
  • Deal registration to protect partner generated opportunities
  • Joint marketing program and access to funds for advanced threat landscape education and admission to events like Data Connectors.
  • Outstanding U.S.-based technical support and free training

Bit9’s top-rated, award winning products complement existing offerings and customers’ existing infrastructure, enabling rapid adoption into the sales pipeline.
