F5 goes global with channel partner offering
F5 Networks has revealed a new, security-specific accreditation program designed for F5’s channel partners around the world.
The Application Delivery Networking (ADN) provider says the program provides partners with an "in-depth understanding of the entire F5 security solution portfolio, including F5’s data centre firewall solution."
The company made the announcement following the launch of their application delivery-focused accreditation program earlier this year.
Offered through the UNITY channel partner program, the program comes at no cost to the F5 channel, helping resellers and distribution partners navigate the evolving security threat landscape, identify additional security-related sales opportunities, and increase revenue.
“F5 has a comprehensive security solution portfolio that offers channel partners an open field to identify new opportunities, enhance their profitability and increase market penetration,” says Dean Darwin, SVP, Worldwide Partner Organisation at F5.
“Through this accreditation, partners will drive new business and increase their understanding of the ever-changing security environment.”
Launched worldwide, the program features separate curricula for both sales and technical channel professionals, each with an exam required to achieve accreditation.
F5 says the training illustrates how solutions can protect data centre and application services, enhance user access, reduce management complexity, and improve performance.
