Enhancements and entry to the programme:
All Network Intelligence channel partners have been invited to join the RSA SecurWorld programme, and are able to purchase through existing RSA authorised distributors. In all countries except the UK, Network Intelligence had operated a one-tier channel model, with all partners holding direct contracts with the vendor. Network Intelligence partner categories have been converted into the corresponding RSA SecurWorld category, with entry levels dependent upon prior levels of training and accreditations received. Channel partners who had achieved Platinum status with Network Intelligence will not have to re-certify as part of the integration, but will need to fulfil the requirements of the RSA SecurWorld program in order to maintain their status going forward.
By joining the RSA SecurWorld Program, Network Intelligence partners will benefit from deal registration, access to the RSA SecurWorld Partner Portal, instant rebates and other rewards and incentives offered to RSA channel partners.
Network Intelligence partners will also have the opportunity to attain the accreditations required to sell RSAs portfolio of other security offerings. In addition, existing RSA SecurWorld partners will be able to earn sales and technical authorizations for Network Intelligence solutions.

Were confident that this will help enable all of our channel partners to address new areas of their customers businesses and profit from cross and up-sell opportunities.
