Keyfactor Earns 5-Star Rating in 2024 CRN® Partner Program Guide for Fourth Consecutive Year

CLEVELAND, Ohio – March 25, 2024Keyfactor, the identity-first security solution for modern enterprises, has been recognized by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, with a prestigious 5-Star Award in its 2024 Partner Program Guide. The Keyfactor Partner Program has been recognized in CRN’s Partner Program Guide for four consecutive years. 

The breadth and depth of support and resources technology vendors offer through their partner programs is a critical consideration for solution providers assessing which IT vendors, service providers, and distributors to team within building world-class technology solutions. The 5-Star rating is awarded to the companies that have built their partner programs to go above and beyond in their commitment to nurturing strong, profitable, and successful channel partnerships.

“To address the evolving needs of partners and customers, the Keyfactor Partner Program has transformed into a purpose-built ecosystem that delivers best-in-class machine identity and IoT security solutions,” said Joe Tong, Senior Vice President of Global Channels, Keyfactor. “It’s an honor to be recognized by CRN in its Partner Program Guide for the fourth consecutive year. This recognition is a testament to Keyfactor’s steadfast commitment to providing our partners with the tools, resources, and opportunities they need to support business growth, and our mission to build a connected world rooted in trust.” 

As new devices are rapidly introduced into enterprise networks, it’s imperative that businesses employ a trusted solution to manage and secure associated machine identities. Launched in February 2020, the Keyfactor Partner Program facilitates seamless enterprise adoption of Keyfactor’s leading PKI and machine identity management solutions. Keyfactor’s partner program is comprised of cloud partners, solution providers, and technology partners with specialization in federal, IoT, and services.  Today’s notable recognition comes on the heels of continued channel momentum, with Keyfactor’s Joe Tong, Senior Vice President of Global Channel, being named on the CRN 2024 Channel Chief List. 

For the 2024 Partner Program Guide, CRN evaluated vendors based on program requirements and offerings such as partner training and education, pre-and post-sales support, marketing programs and resources, technical support, and communication.

“Recognition on this list reflects the value of the spotlighted vendor partner programs and their commitment to evolving with solution providers and supporting IT channel success,” said Jennifer Follett, VP, U.S. Content and Executive Editor, CRN, at The Channel Company. “This recognition empowers solution providers to discover vendors that keep pace with the evolving requirements of their business and their clients. With CRN’s 2024 Partner Program Guide, solution providers can access deep insights into the unique strengths of each partner program and vendors who demonstrate dedication to their partner community.”

The 2024 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April 2024 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/PPG.
