The annual 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.

“Partners are a critical part of the Zero Trust ecosystem to help our joint customers build in the right processes and technology to solve the ever-increasing need for cyber resilience," said Jennifer Johnson, Chief Marketing Officer at Illumio. "We are thankful to our partners and to CRN for their continued support and for recognizing the rising importance of Zero Trust Segmentation as a foundational cybersecurity strategy to help organizations not only become secure, but stay secure in the face of increasing threats."

“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.”

This recognition comes on the heels of the launch of Illumio’s Managed Service Provider (MSP) program, designed to help make small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) resilient to ransomware attacks and other breaches, while enabling partners to protect and segment their customers’ endpoints with Zero Trust Segmentation solutions.
