John Ryan Head of Channels for North America at Guardicore commented, “We selectively partner with top notch organizations, who share our mission to provide technical expertise, streamlining our efforts to provide the best results for our partners. The partner program has been designed to focus on what enriches our partners the most; we enable them technically, we feed them qualified opportunities and we consistently support all of their needs.”

The award-winning Guardicore Partner Program was created to meet the unique needs of different partner types, including resellers, consultants, systems integrators, and managed security service providers interested in deploying the Guardicore Centra Security Platform. The program delivers significant benefits to its partners relative to cloud services. Guardicore provides a SaaS-based (cloud) delivery model that enables a cost-effective and highly scalable deployment model. Partners leverage this model to deliver an infrastructure-agnostic approach to security that extends across legacy, bare metal, private virtualized, public cloud and containers. Additionally, partners are able to leverage Guardicore’s cloud capabilities to deliver a wide range of cloud-based managed security services and cloud-centric professional services.
Guardicore’s Centra Security Platform is a comprehensive data center and cloud security solution that delivers the simplest and most intuitive way to apply micro-segmentation controls to reduce attack surface and detect and control breaches within east-west traffic. It provides deep visibility into application dependencies and flows and enforcement of network and individual process level policies to isolate and segment critical applications and infrastructure. Guardicore Centra’s AI-powered segmentation makes asset classification even easier and reduces the time and effort needed to apply a segmentation policy to new or existing applications.
