St. Bernard Software, the security solutions specialist, is launching a Europe-wide partner recruitment initiative to increase the number of partners following a massive surge in demand.
As more businesses become increasingly aware of the security issues threatening their organisation, St. Bernard has experienced a massive surge in enquiries around some of its latest solutions, SecurityEXPERT and ePrism M500. The firm is recruiting partners specialising in local government, education and the SME sector to meet demand.
St. Bernards European channel partner network already includes companies such as CMS Peripherals, Software Spectrum, Enterprise International, IBV and D2B. As well as extending its network, St. Bernard also aims to increase the range of its existing partners offerings.
Resellers have been knocking on our door since the beginning of the year, hungry to find out more about our solutions, said John Tomlinson, EMEA MD at St. Bernard Software. If we thought last year was the year for spam, patching and spyware, we havent seen anything yet. Extending our channel partners is going to be the key way to meet customer demand to help protect themselves, he concluded.
Smaller organisations often have to opt for cheap, unsupported security solutions that can cause more problems than they are worth, said Geoff Worsley, business development director at Enterprise International, one of St. Bernards European distributors. To SMEs, having a full-time IT team is a luxury that they cant often afford and that doesnt even stop the plethora of spam and viruses threatening an organisation. Using out-of-the-box solutions such as St. Bernards ePrism M500 means big cost savings and peace of mind.
For a reseller, St. Bernard is an ideal partner to help any size and type of organisation increase market share and geographic reach. Combined with the robustness of solutions the company offers, it makes St. Bernard an ideal company to work with, Worsley concluded.
Newly-recruited resellers will automatically become members of SuccessNet, St. Bernards partner programme. Member benefits include preferred pricing options, ongoing product training and technical support, joint marketing initiatives and the opportunity to enter for partner awards.
