Sectigo, a commercial Certificate Authority and a provider in web security solutions, unveiled comprehensive improvements to its Channel Partner Program, enabling partners to expand into new segments within the cybersecurity market and leverage additional support, tools, and discounts. Sectigo partners are authorized to resell Sectigo’s complete portfolio of solutions including TLS/SSL Certificates, SMIME/Email Certificates, Signing Certificates, Certificate Manager, IoT Manager, and PCI Compliance and Website Vulnerability Scanning.
In November 2018, Comodo CA changed its brand name to Sectigo along with a new logo, and also new product names for Enterprise, Instant, and Positive SSL, supported by a new management team
In July last year, the company announced significant revenue growth, fueled in part by a 27 percent year-over-year increase in global partner revenue. By further equipping its already-thriving channel of partners worldwide with additional tools and incentives, Sectigo is poised to continue this record growth in 2019.
“Sectigo is providing our partners with the necessary resources to increase visibility and profitability, and ensure their future success,” said Heather Bell, Vice President of Enterprise Partners, Sectigo. “The initial input we have received about the new Channel Partner Program has been very positive – and we will continue to explore ways to make it mutually beneficial.”
From marketing assets to account support, the new Sectigo Channel Partner Program offers a wide range of benefits and incentives for every member. Partners can work toward four tiered levels, each providing incremental benefits, support, and pricing discounts, such as:
New revenue streams to capitalize on sales of Sectigo S/MIME, Certificate Manager, or IoT Manager, as well as CodeGuard backup and recovery solutions
- Increased benefits per tier, including quarter planning and partner support
- Partner Marketing Development Funds (MDF)
- New partner tools that ease and boost sales and marketing initiatives
- Deal registration
“It’s evident that Sectigo is committed to making our partnership successful,” said James McGuire of The SSL Store, a Platinum Partner of Sectigo. “With the program tiers, it’s reassuring to know that as our business needs scale, so do the levels of support and benefits. Sectigo has also built in rewards, which are obtainable regardless of the level of partnership, partners will appreciate this flexibility as they grow their business.”
