NetWitness unveiled its new Partner Program, which is designed to better meet the needs of NetWitness’ ecosystem of channel resellers, distributors, and managed security service providers (MSSPs) working with enterprises around the globe to improve their threat detection and response capabilities.
The new program is tailored for partners working to help their customers respond to and prepare for cyberthreats that are constantly growing in frequency, scale, and sophistication. Additionally, RSA and NetWitness veteran Corné van Rooij has been promoted to lead NetWitness’ worldwide channel organization.
The NetWitness Partner Program provides partner organizations with improved and simplified operations and processes, a wider breadth of training and enablement, and enhanced partner marketing opportunities and resources. The new program puts a greater emphasis on education so that partners can continue addressing the ever-evolving cybersecurity concerns of their enterprise customers.
“Cybersecurity is a very dynamic field. As the needs and concerns of customers have progressed and become more advanced, we realized there was an opportunity to revamp how we work with our partners so that we can continue providing the insight, visibility, and access that our customers require,” said Dave Govan, Chief Revenue Officer of NetWitness. “Our partners play an integral role in enabling enterprises to detect threats and take action to mitigate them, and our new program is now better positioned to support them in this mission.”
New program benefits include:
- Increased investment in technical training for partners, including additional educational material, instructor-led training sessions, on-demand sessions, and an improved path to certification to enhance partner familiarity and proficiency with NetWitness offerings.
- Several options for hands-on product demonstrations and trials, both on premise and in the cloud, free of charge, to provide greater access to showcasing the NetWitness Platform in real-world environments.
- Simplified rules, protocols, and processes to make it easier for partners to work with NetWitness to close sales.
Mr. Govan added, “The success of our new channel program depends on having strong leadership guiding its strategy and execution. Corné has proven himself time and again as an advocate for the mutual success of our partners and NetWitness, as we all work together to help organizations around the world protect their critical systems and data from cyber threats. We’re thrilled to have him lead our new program.”
Corné van Rooij has held leadership positions in NetWitness’ channel program for more than three years. Prior to his current role, he was a senior leader at CPI Risk, Finance & Governance, as well as iWelcome. He previously spent more than 11 years with RSA, holding a number of management positions. Corné has a degree in computer science from Universiteit Utrecht, as well as a post-doc degree in information security from Hogeschool van Utrecht.
