SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 2, 2013) - Fortinet® (
"This isn't the first time Fortinet has been awarded Best Channel vendor by Business Solutions magazine and judging by this year's results, we're predicting that it won't be their last," said Sue Bresee, publisher of Business Solutions magazine. "In the security category, Fortinet rated exceptionally well in channel friendliness, breadth of channel program and product features, suggesting that Fortinet continues to satisfy their resellers."
"We are honored to be recognized once again as a Best Channel Vendor by the readers of Business Solutions magazine," said Michael Valentine, vice president, Americas Sales and Support for Fortinet. "This endorsement helps to validate the investment we continue to make in our FortiPartner program. In addition to providing our partners with world-class products, services and support, this year we added well-received new programs that include an enhanced registration program, which provides extra protection and added services for better margin protection and an incentive program to pay partners that find and close new opportunities."
The Best Channel Vendor award is based on a survey conducted from mid-September through early October and given to the publication's VAR subscribers. The survey asks VARs to rate their partners in seven categories, including support and service offering, channel friendliness, channel program, product features, product reliability, product innovation and adequate VAR margin. The award recognizes the strengths and commitment of a vendor's partner programs for its channel resellers and IT integrators.
