VSS Monitoring Announces Worldwide Partner Program to Drive Growth Opportunities for Network Monitoring and Security Solution Providers

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 22, 2011) - VSS Monitoring, the leader in network visibility and optimization for network security and performance tools, today announced the VSS Monitoring Channel Partner Network. The global program offers sales and marketing support, deal registration, and industry leading profit margins for resellers. The program will help current and future VSS Monitoring partners grow their businesses with industry's most popular, technologically advanced and comprehensive suite of products to help them increase their customer base and allow them to offer new high-value services to customers.

"Our partners have been instrumental in making VSS the leader in network security and monitoring visibility systems," said Kevin Jablonski, vice president of Americas sales and business development. "Our investment in the VSS Monitoring Channel Partner Network reflects our commitment to our partners' success by providing the programs, training and support that will help them accelerate their business growth."

Frost and Sullivan has estimated that the network monitoring market will increase to nearly $1 billion by 2013, with the highest performing segments such as telecommunications and video growing at 50% a year. In addition, the explosion of data traffic as well as new and sophisticated threats are increasing network complexity and risk. This is coupled with the migration from 10 Mbps / 100 Mbps and 1 Gigabit speeds to 10 Gbps -- and the move towards 40 / 100 Gbps is coming fast.

These factors have caused organizations to lose visibility into their networks. Not enough access points create blind spots and monitoring tools are oversubscribed or undersubscribed. The transformation to network security and monitoring tool optimization systems enabled by VSS Monitoring reduces operational costs and gives customers more from their investment in their existing tools.

"VSS products have been a highly profitable addition to our portfolio," said Greg Hanchin, security business development manager, Global Technology Resources, Inc. "The savings they provide while providing complete network visibility makes for a fast sale and immediate ROI for the customer. The VSS Monitoring Channel Partner Network provides the tools and training we need for success, and their growing strategic partner alliance assures that their systems work in our customers' networks for seamless deployment."

The VSS Monitoring Channel Partner Network features two tiers, Premier Partner Reseller and Elite Partner Reseller. The program encompasses a wide array of benefits, including:

  • Opportunity to broaden and deepen solution providers' customer base at a significant profit margin
  • Deal registration for increased margin
  • Ongoing regional field sales and sales engineer support
  • Comprehensive sales tools
  • Instructor-led, in-depth technical training
  • Sales and marketing enablement, including eligibility for qualified leads and co-marketing programs
  • Dedicated partner portal for access to sales tools, documentation, and marketing programs
