Cleveland, OH, March 27, 2023 Binary Defense, the leading Managed Detection and Response (“MDR”) and enterprise defense provider, has been recognized by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, in its 2023 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide offers essential information to members of the IT channel ecosystem as they explore technology manufacturers’ partner programs to find the vendors that will best support their business needs. 

For solution providers such as managed service providers (MSPs), value-added resellers (VARs), systems integrators, and strategic service providers, a critical factor when assessing which IT manufacturers, service providers, and distributors to team with in building world-class technology solutions is the breadth and depth of the partner programs those companies offer. Strong elements such as financial incentives, sales and marketing assistance, training and certification, technical support and more can set a vendor apart and play a key role in boosting partners long-term growth.  

In the 2023 Partner Program Guide, vendors were evaluated based on program requirements and offerings such as partner training and education, pre- and post-sales support, marketing programs and resources, technical support, and communication. 

Binary Defense is on a mission to make the world a safer place and offers comprehensive, industry-recognized managed detection and response that leverages an open XDR strategy to monitor endpoint, network, cloud, and other log sources to supply high-fidelity threat detections. When paired with its advanced Threat Hunting, Digital Risk Protection, and Incident Response services, the company offers a comprehensive enterprise defense portfolio.  

In early 2023, Binary Defense relaunched its Shield Partner Program which is designed to help increase growth and engagement across the partner ecosystem by offering the tools and training needed to provide best-in-class cybersecurity solutions to their clients. The Shield Partner Program provides partners with pricing incentives, marketing resources, sales support, and post-sales support to increase their revenue and margins. 

The Shield Partner Program focuses on the enablement available for partners, including training and supporting documents to assist partners through the entire lifecycle of client sales. Demand generation is another key focus that is provided through a variety of sales plays that accelerate customer engagement, increase deal registration incentives, and help build the sales pipeline. This partner support is available in addition to premium 24/7 post-sales support and resources, enabling trusted advisor relationships for Binary Defense customers. 

“At Binary Defense, we believe that the right partner is the best defense, and we understand the critical role that our resellers play in our success. We are committed to providing the support and resources needed to excel through our Shield Partner Program,” says Bob Meindl, Binary Defense CEO. “The CRN recognition reflects our dedication to our partners, and we are honored to be part of the 2023 Partner Program Guide. We will continue to work tirelessly to deliver exceptional service and innovative solutions to our partners, helping them to achieve their goals and protect their clients from cyberattacks.”

CRN’s 2023 Partner Program Guide delivers deep insight into the strengths of each program, spotlighting the vendors dedicated to supporting their partner community and pushing positive change throughout the IT channel.”
