Santa Clara -
Santa Clara, Calif. — March 29, 2021 — Today, CRN®, a The Channel Company brand, recognizes Infoblox Inc., the leader in Secure Cloud-Managed Network Services, with a 5-Star rating in the 2021 Partner Program Guide for the Infoblox BuildingBLOX Partner Program. This annual guide provides a conclusive list of the most distinguished partner programs from leading technology companies that provide products and services through the IT channel. The 5-Star rating is awarded to an exclusive group of companies that offer solution providers the best of the best, going above and beyond in their partner programs.
Over the past 12 months, Infoblox worked closely with its partners, the primary drivers of its go-to-market strategy, to develop channel sales, marketing and training programs that promote success and fuel business expansion. A top priority for Infoblox has been helping partners meet the needs of their customers in the post-pandemic world by providing them with the technology, training and talent they require to transform their customers’ infrastructure into more secure and scalable cloud-first environments.
“The last year has been nothing if not extraordinary for Infoblox and our partners,” said Sandy Janes, Senior Director of Global Partner Programs and Operations, Infoblox. “We are tremendously honored to be recognized by CRN as a 5-Star partner program. This designation validates that the investments we’ve made in our partner program, including the recent expansion of the BuildingBLOX program to include a new Cloud Specialization designation, are reinforcing their ability to grow their businesses and take customers to the leading edge of workplace transformation.”
Launched in February 2021, the Cloud Specialization designation connects top-performing channel partners with Infoblox Cloud Champions, with the goal of creating a highly-skilled, SaaS-savvy sales force. “We are very excited that this initiative gives up to 30 designated channel partners worldwide exclusive access to Infoblox’s Cloud Champions — a team of proven cloud experts in field sales, business development, customer training and other disciplines,” continued Janes.
Infoblox’s Cloud Champions help partners expand their cloud businesses and drive success by effectively marketing, selling and supporting SaaS-based solutions. Additional partner benefits include double-digit sales incentives, exclusive training and education offerings, as well as executive insights and peer-to-peer learnings.
“As innovation continues to fuel the speed and intricacy of technology, solution providers need partners that can keep up and support their developing business.” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s 2021 Partner Program Guide gives insight into the strengths of each organization’s program to recognize those that continually support and push positive change inside the IT channel.”
The 2021 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April 2021 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/PPG.
