Cloud security provider Netskope has bolstered its worldwide partner programme with a host of new benefits, incentives, and opportunities.

As an increasing number of businesses embrace Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) and Secure Service Edge (SSE) architecture, the revamped Evolve Partner Program will provide partners with more opportunities to profit and grow alongside Netskope, the firm said.

“Security has become more dynamic than ever, stretching to accommodate cloud-based traffic and thousands of applications across a distributed workforce, and creating increased demand for solution providers that can strategically advise on the right steps toward SASE,” explained Dave Rogers, Netskope’s vice president of global alliances, channel sales.

“The evolution of our channel programme underscores our commitment to meeting this need, empowering our partners to achieve accelerated growth with us behind the massive SSE and SASE opportunity. We’re providing our partners with all of the resources, incentives and discounts they need for high-growth, long-term success.”

The new programme comprises three tiers in a bid to further support the partner ecosystem. A new ‘Authorized’ level offers an entry point, while the ‘Gold’ and ‘Platinum’ levels deliver bigger discount advantages for top partners.

Partners can also now benefit from a new global discounting structure by programme level and opportunity type, the firm said. This comes alongside incentives for those that bring opportunities to Netskope through its Deal Registration scheme.

The programme has also its expanded technical certifications, with the addition of two new pathways for partners to become Certified Cloud Security Administrators or Certified Cloud Security Integrators. Additionally, Netskope has introduced a new Service Delivery Specialisation, designed to aid partners building out implementation and activation offerings.

“The enhancements to our Evolve Partner Program further builds on our partner-centric go-to-market strategy,” said Michael Herman, Netskope’s vice president, channel sales, EMEA/LATAM.

“Partnering with Netskope means our channel can be confident of a strong and predictable ROI, essential for investment in the brand and the technology.

“Together with our committed and enabled partners, we will bring more value to our customers and change the way enterprise security has always been done.”
