Partner Deal Registrations Jump for Dell Security Lineup
Dell is seeing a significant bounce in partner deal registration activity in its security product lineup, the company told attendees at its annual North American Dell Security Peak Performance conference this week.
"With security being a top priority for all organizations, we are delighted to see the success of our partner strategy," said Marvin Blough, vice president of worldwide channel sales at Dell Security, in a blog post from the Las Vegas conference, which drew 650 attendees from 22 countries.
The number of deal registrations increased by 7 percent to more than 4,100 per quarter, and the number of individual partners submitting deal registrations increased by 12 percent to 1,300 per quarter, Blough said.
In the last 12 months, 12,000 partners sold Dell SonicWALL products, including firewalls, secure mobile access solutions and e-mail security solutions.
At the same time, Dell is building out its channel capacity for security solutions. The company reported that 320 partners earned the network security competency in the last 12 months. Dell's total number of Preferred and Premier level partners is now 1,500.
The Peak Performance conference runs through Wednesday.
