NINJIO, a cybersecurity awareness training company, has launched a new partner program that gives integrators, consultancies and managed service providers access to its new (SAT) solution.

The Los Angeles, California-based company specializes in producing 3- to 4-minute “Hollywood-style” micro-learning videos that teach employees as well as families how not to get hacked. NINJIO’s animated content, released every 30 days, focuses on the most current and prolific security threat. Videos feature a single security "attack vector"​ in short, bite-sized stories.

The new NINJIO Partner Program offers three tracks that partners can choose:

  • White-label or co-brand NINJIO solutions and support services through NINJIO Complete
  • Selling NINJIO branded solutions and offers via NINJIO Sell
  • Referring customers to NINJIO by participating in NINJIO Refer

Tim Acker, vice president of Global Channel and Alliances at NINJIO, explained the advantages of his company’s new offering:

“The NINJIO Partner Program offers solution providers an opportunity to meet the full array of their customers’ cybersecurity needs. By providing support at every step of the sales journey, allowing partners to customize their security offerings, and connecting companies with the most effective SAT solution on the market, our partner program provides collaborative tools, assets, and a strong economic value. Betting on NINJIO by joining our partner program is an excellent way to improve relationships with customers and ensure that they’re staying secure in an era of rapidly proliferating cyberthreats.”

NINJIO CEO and President Dr. Shaun McAlmont, added:

“We are thrilled to bring NINJIO’s platform and content to a much wider group of users through our new partner program. Creating cybersecurity behavior change among more people is NINJIO’s core mission.”

NINJIO Offers Partners Special Incentives

MSPs and MSSPs increasingly offer security awareness training services to their customers as part of a larger strategy to reduce phishing attacks and social engineering attacks. For that matter, the NINJIO Partner Program offers "attractive financial rewards, robust partner support and comprehensive sales and marketing enablement," the company said. The program rewards partners based on their level of investment and engagement in selling NINJIO solutions.

In addition, qualified partners receive access to the complete NINJIO Partner Portal:

  • Resources for sales, marketing, training, program details and governance
  • Attractive compensation in discounts and special pricing agreements
  • Eligibility for marketing development funds
  • A comprehensive set of demand generation tools

NINJIO Executes Growth Strategy

Over its ascent in the cybersecurity market since its founding in 2015, NINJIO formed a partnership with TD SYNNEX to provide customers with access to enhanced SAT capabilities. TD SYNNEX is a global IT distributor and solutions aggregator with 150,000 customers in over 100 countries, including 22,000 employees and more than 1,500 “best-in-class” technology vendors.

In February 2022, software-as-a-service (SaaS) revenue expert Andrew Hahn joined NINJIO as chief sales officer. Hahn created global education and compliance strategies for thousands of companies in his prior leadership roles at LRN, IBM Watson and Cornerstone OnDemand.

NINJIO helped secure its future in July 2021 when it tapped Gauge Capital to recapitalize the company.
