Infoblox, a US-based secure Cloud-Managed Network Services provider, with a strong presence in India, is demonstrating its commitment to the channel through new offerings in core network services and cybersecurity and rolling out enhanced partner learning management systems.
As cyberattacks continue to become more sophisticated and complex, a strong cybersecurity and channel strategy is critical. As a result, channel partners are more important than ever before. Over the past year, Infoblox has expanded its partner alliance ecosystem by growing partner bookings 12 percent and through the addition of 100 new partners. Infoblox plans to continue that momentum in 2019 by simplifying the process for partners to sell products and bring them to market with enablement toolkits.
Approximately 95 percent of all Infoblox business flows through the channel and thanks to its BuildingBLOX partner program, it is able to continue this partner sales strategy. The BuildingBLOX partner program has been expanded to include additional investment in accreditation, deal registration enhancements, new partner tools and rebate rewards. The program rewards partners for their investment in accreditation competencies such as network, security, and automation; partners who invest in certifications and training receive increased benefits. The program also includes online sales and technical pre-sales training on all Infoblox products for accreditation.

Additional value to existing offerings
Increased opportunity to deliver professional and managed services
