InfoSec Institute, a Chicago-based security education company, has launched a new partner program, enabling MSPs, VARs and OEMs to sell SecurityIQ, the vendor’s cloud-based platform for employee security education. The platform offers a library of role-based security training, phishing simulations, and, upon successful completion, a “Security Awareness Practitioner” certification.
The program offers qualified partners deal registration discounts, marketing and lead generation resources, market development funds, sales support resources, technical training, and technical sales training to help clients build effective security awareness programs. Partners can also resell InfoSec Flex Pro, the company’s family of professional IT security training boot camps and certification prep courses.
To manage the new InfoSec Partner Program, the company recently appointed Michael Nobers as its director of global channel sales.
“With a 20-year history of delivering security education, InfoSec Institute is here to stay,” said Nobers. “Foregoing restrictive tiers and commitments common to other channel programs, the new InfoSec Institute Partner Program is our commitment to providing the resources and team support all partners need to strategically grow their businesses with new revenue streams.”
The new program provides partners a new means of differentiation in the IT security space and potentially delivers on the value of a more security-aware workforce for end customers.
