Netsurion, a leading provider of remotely-managed network and data security services for multi-location businesses, today launched PROTECT, a sales and support program for its growing network of channel partners.

Retail and franchise brands are seeking more effective protection against hackers that exploit weak security practices to breach networks. With PROTECT, IT resellers, payment processors, security integrators, distributors and POS service providers can ensure their customers are secure and capitalize on this opportunity by delivering solutions that protect customer networks and POS systems from evolving security threats, all backed by Netsurion's Brand Guard security technologies and web-based support resources.

"Being a leader in security is important to every brand's reputation, which is creating tremendous demand for our services," said Chris Melson, president of Netsurion. "Our goal with PROTECT is to enable and elevate our partners through tangible benefits such as dedicated account managers and on-site sales support when needed, to solve the unique security needs of our collective customers in restaurant, grocery, healthcare and financial services businesses."

PROTECT is available immediately to Netsurion's current ecosystem of partners that include Retail Data Systems, DUMAC Business Systems and Apex Digital Solutions, among others.

"Security has become a C-level priority in the boardroom, across the industry and across companies large and small," said Drew Clausen, vice president of Retail Data Systems. "Netsurion's proven security technology and services allow us to expand our sales by protecting our clients' networks and customer data."

Building on the success of Netsurion's current channel program, PROTECT focuses on enablement, competitive margins and marketing support services. PROTECT is structured in two levels: standard and preferred, with sales and marketing benefits tiered according to need. The resources from which certified Netsurion partners can benefit include:

  • Pricing structures and sales incentives to maximize profits and create sustainable revenue
  • Quarterly webinars and customized training
  • Tradeshow marketing support, co-branded marketing materials, company featured on website

Another goal of the program is to recruit additional qualified channel partners. Beyond sales acumen, regional coverage and industry specialization, Netsurion seeks partners that have a strong need for networking and POS and are looked upon by their clients as trusted IT advisors.
