CA and CA Veracode channel programs shine
Both programs receive “5-Star” status amidst other accolades from CRN.
CRN®, one of the industry’s top sources for news and analysis for the IT channel, recently granted CA Technologies and CA Veracode a 5-Star rating in its 2018 Partner Program Guide. The annual Partner Program Guide is the definitive listing of partner programs from technology vendors that provide products and services through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program Guide rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs. CA’s partner programs have been recognized consistently by CRN with a “5-Star Rating” since 2003.
“We are proud to be recognized by the Channel Company for our commitment to our Partners,” said John Eldh, senior vice president, Global Partners at CA Technologies. “This CRN 5-star rating demonstrates that we are developing programs that help our Partners deliver exceptional value and business results to our joint customers through the CA Advantage Partner Program. Our Partners are a vital part of CA’s go- to-market strategy and we are continually enhancing our program to make it easy and profitable for our Partners to do business with us.”
In addition, CA Technologies was also included in CRN’s 2018 Security 100 ranking in the Identity Management and Data Protection category. The Security 100 List project recognizes the coolest security vendors in the market today that have demonstrated creativity and innovation in product development, as well as a strong commitment to delivering those offerings through a vibrant channel of solution providers.
Finding the right technology vendor to partner with can be a daunting task, given the vast array of choices available to solution providers. CRN’s ratings help companies narrow the field and find the best fit for their needs.
“As companies transition into modern software factories that speed new applications and services to market, security must evolve to be so simple that every developer will want to incorporate it,” said Mordecai Rosen, general manager, Security at CA Technologies. “With CA Veracode, we have a comprehensive security portfolio that’s designed to insert security at every point in the process to ensure digital trust across the enterprise and beyond. We’re proud that our partner programs have received the 5-star rating and that we’ve once again been recognized by CRN in the 2018 Security 100 for the second year in a row. We look forward to continuing the positive momentum with our partners in 2018 and for many years to come.
Adds Leslie Bois, vice president of Global Channels and Alliances for CA Veracode, “Web application attacks are one of the most frequent incident patterns in confirmed breaches so there is an opportunity for partners to grow their businesses around CA Veracode’s Application Security Platform. We’ve developed a program that makes it easier for partners to become their customer’s trusted advisor in application security and we are proud to be recognized by CRN for our efforts in delivering a program our partners demand.”
Earlier this year, CRN named Leslie Bois to its prestigious list of 2018 Channel Chiefs, which recognizes top leaders in the IT channel. CA’s John Eldh and Tony Jennings were also recognized on this list.
