SAN JOSE, CA, Feb. 27, 2006 A10 Networks™, a pioneer in delivering a new class of identity-aware network solutions, today announced it is recruiting value-added solution providers and integration partners in North America and throughout the Asia-Pacific region to market, distribute and support its line of identity & access management (IAM) appliances.
The goal of A10's Partner Program is to build a global network of dedicated high-quality solution providers committed to offering outstanding service and support to A10 customers. A10's "identity-aware" networking solutions offer channel partners a unique opportunity to provide simplified identity and access management solutions to businesses of all sizes, in every industry.
Among the companies joining A10's Partner Program today are Corsa Network Technologies and SeyMoor Technologies, Inc., both based in North America. A10 also has partnerships with four resellers and a distributor in China, as announced separately.
"Identity and access management is receiving ever more attention from our customers, so we have been looking for a solid and easy-to-use IAM solution. Partnering with A10 allows us to enhance our security and compliance offerings with an industry-leading identity and access management appliance, and better serve our customers," said James Volpe, President of Corsa Network Technologies.
A10's program will provide resellers with effective sales and marketing programs, leads, tools, training and support services needed to ensure their business success. The Partner Program is tiered into Certified, Authorized and Network partnership levels.
Industry research firm IDC expects the IAM market will grow from just over $2B today to more than $4B by 2009, while research firm the Gartner Group predicts convergence of the IAM market with the Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) technology segment. With its combination of features, A10's new IDsentrie appliance is situated squarely at the intersection of these two growing and converging market segments.
"We are 100% channel, so we see our reseller partners as an extension of our sales force and invaluable towards expanding our worldwide footprint," said Peter Stokes, vice president of Sales at A10 Networks. "With this group of dedicated resellers, and others we expect to sign on in coming months, we are working to build a world-class partner ecosystem that enables us and our partners to maximize our business opportunity, while solving problems that are challenging customers today."
"Identity is a necessary part of security compliance and auditing, and IDsentrie is simply the fastest and most cost-effective way to get there," said Sarah Lynn, CEO and President of SeyMoor Technologies, Inc. (www.seymoor.com).
