Webroot, a Colorado-based security vendor, has launched a new certification program that covers key feature differentiators, deployment best practices, cybersecurity management, and basic troubleshooting techniques for SecureAnywhere Business Endpoint Protection.

Targeting MSPs, VARs, and similar partners, the program provides two free, self-paced certification tracks; one for sales people and one for technicians. The sales track provides an overview of key product features and differentiators. The technical track provides best practices for deployment and support.

Partners also gain access to additional tools and resources, such as the Webroot IP test tool, which is designed to help reduce troubleshooting time.

“With a significant shortage of security expertise in the marketplace, Webroot is committed to providing our partners with the knowledge and tools they need to implement the security solutions today’s IT environment demands,” said Charles Tomeo, Webroot’s vice president of worldwide business sales. “Partners will find they can become more self-sufficient with this certification, which will translate into better results and an increased bottom line.”

When at least one employee attains a sales certification and one attains a technical certification, partners can badge themselves as a Webroot Certified Partner.

Channel Impact®
Additional training and enablement can often go a long way towards solidifying channel relationships and promoting business development, especially when partners also receive a designation that validates their expertise.
