Revamped Sectigo Channel Partner Program offers increased profitability and visibility to partners

Global leader in digital web security solutions—Sectigo (formerly Comodo CA), is revamping its Channel Partner Program to provide a new level of support and benefits to the partners.

Sectigo Channel Partner Program is dedicated to build partnerships with web hosts, managed service providers, direct market resellers and domain registrars to develop and deliver website security solutions. The program provides required training, certifications, rewards, support and benefits to the partners, so that they can deliver valuable services to customers.

With the revamped program, partners will get additional support, tools and discounts, which will allow them to expand into new segments within the cybersecurity market.

Partners can now resell the complete suite of services offered by Sectigo. These services include TLS/SSL Certificates, SMIME/Email Certificates, Signing Certificates, Certificate Manager, IoT Manager, and PCI Compliance and Website Vulnerability Scanning.

Sectigo Channel Partner Program will also bring new revenue streams for partners, increased benefits per tier, partner Marketing Development Funds (MDF), and deal registration.

“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.”

The certificate authority experienced significant growth in revenue last year, which was partly driven by progress in its global partner revenue. According to the company, the partner revenue increased by 27% year-over-year. By expanding the partner program, Sectigo is planning to boost its growth in 2019.

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.”

The program enables the customer to apply their credits as needed based on business requirements and provides a very effective mechanism to control cloud spend and manage their providers. In addition, VMware Cloud Credits are managed inside MyVMware providing customers with a single pane of glass to view their perpetual licenses along with all public and hybrid cloud spend.
