Malwarebytes Receives 5-Star Rating in CRN 2018 Partner Program Guide

Annual guide recognizes the channel’s top partner programs

 SANTA CLARA, Calif. – April 2, 2018 Malwarebytes™, the leading advanced malware prevention and remediation solution, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given Malwarebytes a 5-Star rating in its 2018 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of partner programs, from technology vendors, that provide products and services through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program Guide rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

To determine the 2018 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each vendor’s partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.

The Malwarebytes Partner Program has seen tremendous success over the past few years. From 2017 to 2018 the company experienced double-digit growth in channel sales and 59 percent year-over-year growth in number of partners on-boarded. Malwarebytes continues to prioritize the creation of cutting-edge protection and remediation technology for businesses and consumers. In 2017 alone, Malwarebytes developed and released a single integrated endpoint agent, a new easy to deploy and use cloud-based management console and a new Anomaly Detection Engine integrated into Malwarebytes’ layered approach to security. Additionally, Malwarebytes released and integrated Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware into its core stable of solutions. Organizations across the globe are deploying the full portfolio of Malwarebytes endpoint protection and remediation security solutions widely across the entirety of their operations.

“Finding the right technology vendor to partner with can be a daunting task, given the vast array of choices now available to solution providers,” said Robert Faletra, Executive Chairman of The Channel Company. “CRN’s Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings help them narrow the field and find the best fit, identifying the most rewarding partner programs and providing crucial insight into their strengths and benefits. We are pleased to present our 2018 PPG list, recognizing the strongest and most successful partner programs in the channel today.”

“We are honored to receive a CRN 5-Star partner program rating for the third year in a row,” said CJ Patella, Regional Vice President, North American Channel, Malwarebytes. “We always strive to provide our valued partners with modern, innovative solutions to protect against the latest cyberthreats. In an effort to continue improving our program, over the course of the year we will be making changes to our Partner Program that will increase the value that MSPs and resellers deliver to joint customers and enable them to grow their revenue and lower costs.”
