The program offers Link11 partners targeted sales support for the Link11 Cloud Security Platform. The product portfolio and partner program are precisely tailored to the requirements of managed security providers.
Link11, one of the leading IT security providers in cyber resilience, is introducing its partner program, aimed at supporting existing and future sales partners in the growing IT security market. Link11 creates ideal conditions on the partner side for the lucrative positioning of its Link11 Cloud Security Platform. The company also offers supplementary, targeted support in marketing, technology, and training to a very diverse range of IT service providers, including resellers and channel partners, to enable them to support their corporate customers.
Digital, cloud-based change is revolutionizing the business world and affecting all companies and authorities. Demand for new products, manufacturing processes and networking is changing at an unprecedentedly fast pace. Competitive pressure and newly emerging global market demand are showing that in terms of digital availability, “always on” is essential. An increase in the quantity and sophistication of cyber attacks thus poses an enormous risk. Cyber attacks targeting infrastructures are among the top ten global risks for 2020, according to the World Economic Forum. Companies that want to counter this risk using their own team of IT security specialists are faced with an ongoing shortage of skilled workers.
Link11 has developed its partner program as a result of this discrepancy between increasing IT security risks and the limited access to a skilled workforce. The program is aimed at managed security service providers, hosts, system integrators and security consulting partners, who support their corporate customers through digital transformation as “trusted advisors”. In Link 11’s “Channel First” strategy, the partners form a centralized, strategic building block to help ensure growth.
The partner program is an extension of the Link11 Cloud Security Platform. The patented protection solutions offer comprehensive, long-term security against an extremely fast-moving threat situation by means of automation, machine learning and AI. The solutions are based on automated volume data analysis and permanent monitoring from a range of hybrid cloud and multi-cloud environments, which are made up of local and outsourced IT solutions. They offer comprehensive security through a 360-degree approach to DDoS protection, web application firewalls, bot mitigation, API protection, secure DNS and secure CDN.
“The combination of a modular security platform, AI based architecture, and ‘Made in Germany’ security allows the partner to serve a greater number of customers with additional solutions, while maintaining the same size team. The customers benefit from the future-proof protection offered by the Link11 platform for their business processes and infrastructures,” says Hagen Renner, Head of DACH Channels at Link11.
“The technological leadership, in combination with the extensive channel program, will help our partners to position themselves successfully against the competition and build on their position as trusted advisors.”
