Faced with threats, exposure points and personnel needs growing at a pace their budgets and actual headcount can’t keep up with, IT departments are increasingly relying on managed security service providers (MSSP) to fill the gaps.
To help our MSSP partners meet the unprecedented demand for their knowledge and expertise, SonicWall has leveraged its nearly three decades in the channel industry to create a new MSSP partner program focused on delivering simplicity and efficiency during a time when you need it most.
By combining our expanding set of threat intelligence solutions with a flexible set of pricing options, our goal is to help MSSPs grow profitability. And by adding program enhancements such as simplified operations; automated provisioning and billing; Unified visibility and security management; and pre-defined threat analytics, reporting and workflows, we’re offering MSSPs the opportunity to meet goals more easily than ever.

“After being in close communication with our MSSP partners, we’ve been working around the clock to develop a strong program layered in with our highly successful SecureFirst partner program that caters to the specific needs of over 20,000 current partners around the world,” said SonicWall Vice President, Global MSSP & Carrier Sales, Luca Taglioretti. “We’re excited to deliver flexible pricing options that match the way customers want to buy, including monthly, annual and consumption-based models.”
The MSSP program offers its own curriculum and accreditation with access to L3 Premier Support and full technical knowledgebase. What’s more, all program participants will benefit from an assigned partner manager and sales engineer, while those in the Top Tier will also have access to a solution architect.

“Our goal is to help simplify the daily operations of MSSPs and provide them with the support that they need, exactly when they need it,” said SonicWall Vice President, Global Channel Sales, HoJin Kim. “Being a 100% channel company, we feel this is a natural progression for us and look forward to continuing to deliver managed security services to enterprises, SMBs and government organizations that are challenged with the task of defending increasingly more targeted cyberattacks.”

Expanded annual and monthly pricing model licenses
Aggressive volume–based pricing based on assets under management
Priority access to Premier Support Tier 3 engineers
