Channel has stars in their eyes as Check Point launches new partner program

“The Stars Program has a single goal: to make Check Point partners more successful, knowledgeable and profitable."

Check Point Software Technologies has revealed its new global partner program, the Stars Program, designed to create improved sales opportunities for channel partners.

The security vendor says the move will give partners "all the resources they need" to dramatically accelerate their Check Point sales revenue and develop closer business relationships.

Developed in consultation with its channel partners, Check Point says the Stars Program help cut through the complexity often associated with selling and supporting security solutions.

“The Stars Program has a single goal: to make Check Point partners more successful, knowledgeable and profitable,” says Amnon Bar-Lev, President, Check Point Software Technologies.

“We want our partners to be a fully-integrated part of the Check Point team, so we are delivering the best growth opportunities and rewards in the industry.”

Bar-Lev says the Stars Program also offers an extensive range of training and support tools with the company inviting partners to its annual Sales Kick-Off, to deepen their knowledge of the company’s roadmap and solutions first-hand.

The Stars Program's tiered levels reward channel partners with competitive product discounts and guaranteed margins, a move Bar-Lev hopes will enable partners to take "full advantage" of new opportunities available in the growing network and data security market.

It includes four levels of accreditation, ranging from 2 Stars (Certified) to the invite-only 4 Stars Elite while providing account teams, enhanced sales tools and market development funding, alongside increased product margins and incentives for partners.
