Leading Channel Authority Recognizes Actifio's Channel Partner Program as Exceptional

WALTHAM, Mass. - March 28, 2011 - Actifioâ„¢, the leader in Data Management Virtualization (DMV), today announced that Everything Channel's CRN Magazine has awarded Actifio's Partner Program a 'Five-Star' partner designation. With this honor, Actifio was named one of North America's 'elite' subset of vendors who give solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs. The Actifio Partner Program is also featured in the March 2011 issue of CRN Magazines' annual Partner Programs Guide.

The Five Star Partner Program rating is bestowed on programs whose overall rating is among the elite based on company size. The Everything Channel CRN Partner Programs Guide recognizes vendors either developing channel programs or offering products and services through the channel. To qualify for the Partner Programs Guide vendors must derive a portion of sales through the indirect IT channel.

'Building a world-class partner program is a core mission for Actifio as we deliver the industry's first, virtualized platform for data management, resulting in a single, efficient solution for data protection, disaster recovery, business continuity, or any data copy operation, delivering radical simplicity at up to 90 percent lower TCO,' said Ash Ashutosh, CEO, Actifio. 'The Five-Star Partner Program distinction from CRN magazine is an honor to receive as we have worked hard to build a program that offers among the most extensive go-to-market resources and training tools in the industry. When these program elements are paired with Actifio's, simple, differentiated channel-ready product for data management virtualization, it creates an impressive foundation for long-term success for partners and their customers.'

Actifio's Partner Program provides access to its extensive data management virtualization technology training, marketing and customer support programs. It also provides a comprehensive platform for a range of programs designed to drive long term partner success through innovative marketing and financial incentives.

Program benefits include:

  • Training to become a certified partner

  • Innovative demand generation programs
  • Deal registration
