Netskope, a secure access service edge (SASE) specialist, has launched a new managed service provider (MSP) program as an add-on to its Evolve partner program.

The new MSP program helps partners to expand their revenue streams with an additional route to market and profitable service offerings, Netskope announced. The program provides flexible licensing options and dedicated MSP resources. It also offers a new technical support accreditation that complements Netskope’s service delivery specialization.

Cloud, Data and Network Security Delivered

Netskope's SASE platform includes cloud, data and network security. Partners have the flexibility to offer the full spectrum or a portion of these solutions in a packaged managed service offering to their customers.

Here are some features of the program:

  • A new as-a-service business model framework includes tools and resources to support partners as they develop and deliver managed Netskope SASE offerings.
  • Simplified and flexible SKU pricing, new solution packages across the Netskope product portfolio, and a new deal protection program to register MSP opportunities are offered.
  • Two partner technical training tracks are dedicated to implementation and support, including the introduction of five new training modules, access to a dedicated global support portal, and a new MSP partner support process.
  • A dedicated MSP portal is available exclusively to Netskope MSP partners, including tools, training, support and access to the MSP opportunity registration.

Netskope Affirms MSP Support

Kristin Carnes, Netskope vice president of Global Channel Programs, said the company wants to “unlock” new opportunities for its channel partners:

"Netskope continues to build programs that unlock as much opportunity as possible for our global partner ecosystem. The formalized managed service provider program arms partners with the support and tools they need to successfully build out managed service offerings and deliver a fully managed Netskope SASE solution to their customers."
