NEW YORK — March 29, 2022 — NS1, the leader in application traffic intelligence and automation, today announced it received a 5-Star rating by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, in its 2022 Partner Program Guide. This marks the third consecutive year NS1 has received this distinction, which is achieved only by select vendors that deliver the best of the best, going above and beyond in their partner programs to help push growth and positive change.
NS1 has built a premier channel program supporting more than 70 partners worldwide. During 2021, the company reinforced the channel as a primary source of revenue, adding new reseller partners across all geographies, including new corporate domain registrars, such as Com Laude and Safenames. NS1’s Global INS1DER Partner Program helps its partners make NS1 products as compelling as possible for customers, with both pre-and post-sales support to maximize customer satisfaction and revenue opportunities. This includes virtual and hands-on training for sales, marketing, and technical operations; an extensive online portal with training, pricing, and technical resources; and incentives and special pricing based on partner performance.
“The 5-Star rating validates our efforts to infuse value into our partner program to ensure mutual success,” said Stacy Desrosiers, vice president of worldwide channels at NS1. “Across industries, customers are realizing the need for solutions that deliver flexibility, security, and resilience for modern networks and applications — and our partners are ready to help fulfill that need.”
CRN’s annual Partner Program Guide provides a definitive list of the most notable partner programs from industry-leading technology vendors that provide innovative products and flexible services through the IT channel. It provides the channel community with a deep dive into the partner programs offered by IT vendors, service providers, and distributors. Companies are scored based on their investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication. A 5-star rating helps narrow the field to find the best fit, identifying the most rewarding partner programs and providing crucial insight into their strengths.
“CRN’s Partner Program Guide delves into the strengths of each organization’s partner program in order to honor those that consistently support and promote good change within the IT channel,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “As innovation fuels the speed and complexity of technology today, solution providers want partners that can keep up with and assist their growing business.”
The 2022 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April 2022 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/PPG.
