CLEVELAND, Ohio – March 27, 2023 — Keyfactor, the identity-first security solution for modern enterprises, today announced it achieved a 5-star rating on CRN®’s, a brand of The Channel Company, 2023 Partner Program Guide.

The 5-star rating is awarded to the companies that go above and beyond in their commitment to nurturing strong, profitable, successful channel partnerships.
“The Keyfactor Partner Program is continuously recognized for its delivery of best-in-class machine identity and IoT security solutions, and was purpose-built to address common enterprise identity security challenges. This recognition validates the value our technology brings to our growing partner and customer ecosystem,” said Joe Tong, Senior Vice President of Global Channels, Keyfactor. “It is an honor to be included on CRN’s Partner Program Guide for the third consecutive year, and earn a 5-star rating on the 2023 guide. We thank our channel team and partners for helping us achieve this honorable recognition.”
