This expansion comes on the heels of the company’s recent acquisition of CipherCloud, and partners of both companies will benefit from the Lookout Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) solution. Participation in the Lookout channel program will accelerate partners' ability to sell the industry’s first integrated platform that secures an organiation’s entire data path from endpoint to cloud.
“We know that securing endpoint-to-cloud connectivity will remain a top IT priority for organisations as a large portion of their workforce continues working remotely, even as the pandemic subsides,” said Gert-Jan Schenk, Chief Revenue Officer, Lookout. “To enable their digital transformation, we’ve redesigned our partner program to better enable partner success. With the Lookout integrated endpoint-to-cloud security solution, our channel partners can enable their customers’ digital transformation by empowering them to securely deliver applications to users anywhere they want to work.”
New Program Initiatives:
Lookout has simplified its previous channel partner levels to better recognie and celebrate partners who have shown industry expertise and a proven track record. Lookout partners are eligible for benefits that elevate their value and differentiation in the market and increase profitability.
Benefits exclusive to Elite partners include larger discounts on registered deals, marketing development funds (MDF), additional revenue streams from consulting and professional services, dedicated product and sales champions, access to insights and findings from the Lookout Threat Intelligence team, technical and sales training, exclusive invitations to industry roundtables and peer exchange events, and an invitation to the annual Lookout Partner Summit.
The need for an integrated endpoint-to-cloud security solution is accelerated by several factors, including the proliferation of remote users, the adoption of cloud applications, and data transitioning out of the corporate data center into the cloud. To tackle the security challenges posed by these unstoppable trends, businesses need a unified platform that can track activity and enforce policies across the entire data path – from the endpoint device to cloud-based applications. With the signals and control points needed to stop zero-day attacks scattered across the entire end-to-end path, only a fully integrated solution can close the gaps created by multiple point products sourced from separate security vendors.
