SonicWall Tops 21,000 Partners
Continuing its surge in partner signups since going independent from Dell, SonicWall on Tuesday declared a new channel milestone with 21,000 registered partners worldwide.
"The numbers speak for themselves," SonicWall President and CEO Bill Conner said in a statement. "With the diligence of our committed channel community, SonicWall is building one of the most modern, engaging and rewarding partner programs in the industry."
Membership in the SonicWall SecureFirst Partner Program is up about 40 percent from June, when SonicWall reported 15,000 partners. The private network security company launched the SecureFirst Partner Program in November 2016, and since that time says it has added 7,700 net new partners to its program. Presumably the other 13,300 partners had worked with the company in the Dell days or before then.
SonicWall also on Tuesday released data suggesting that the SonicWall University training program it launched last April is boosting revenues for partners that participate. The company says average revenue increases for partners that haven't used the training program are 7 percent, but quarter-over-quarter revenues are up 21 percent for those with staff who have attained SonicWall University achievements.
