Sophos launches revised partner programme

Sophos has made changes to its partner programme to integrate Astaro resellers and to deliver more training and support to its channel

Sophos has revised its partner programme unveiling a more integrated offering to include Astaro partners and provide resellers with greater support.

With the acquisition of Astaro coming up for its first anniversary Sophos has taken the best elements of its partner programme and included it in a revised scheme for all partners.

Under the new partner programme resellers can get access to certifications, training, incentives and have the chance to sell the entire product range.

There are three fresh certification courses that will encourage more in-depth training and the partner portal has been given a fresh makeover to support the changes.

Mike McGuisnness, senior vice president of worldwide sales and field operations at Sophos, said that resellers were its life blood so it needed to continue to invest in the support it gave partners.

"It is crucial for us to continue making significant investments in our channel," he added that it expected the revised programme would encourage more resellers to sell more of its products.
