With a relentless and growing focus on partner success, Infoblox, a global pprovider of secure cloud-managed network services, has announced it is investing in expanding the skill sets of its top-performing cloud-first channel partners.

The new Infoblox Cloud Specialisation programme marks a foundational step in the execution of the company’s SaaS go-to-market strategy, which is predominantly channel-centric and applies the latest advances in microservices, containersation, and virtualisation to bring foundational DDI and security capabilities to the cloud in new and different ways.

“SaaS is the future of sales at Infoblox and we are thrilled to debut our Cloud Specialiation programme and further enable our channel partners to market, sell and support our secure SaaS solutions at scale,” said Sandy Janes, Senior Director, Global Partner Programmes and Operations, Infoblox. “Rewarding our channel partners throughout the customer lifecycle is a top priority at Infoblox and a key differentiator within our expanded SaaS programme.”

As part of the new SaaS designation, up to 30 designated channel partners worldwide will gain exclusive access to Infoblox’s Cloud Champions – a team of proven cloud experts in field sales, business development, customer training and other disciplines. Working together, Infoblox’s Cloud Champions will help these channel partners expand their cloud business and achieve greater success through more effectively marketing, selling and supporting SaaS-based solutions. Additional partner benefits will include double-digit sales incentives, exclusive training and education offerings, as well as executive insights and peer-to-peer learnings.

“Organisations continue to demand flexible, subscription based consumption models,” says Jon Jensen, VP of Sales, Cybersecurity at Presidio, an IT solution provider and Infoblox channel partner participating in this year’s Cloud Specialisation programme.

Jesper Andersen, CEO and President, Infoblox, said: “Since the shutdown began a year ago, businesses of all sizes are increasingly consuming cloud-managed DDI and security to transform how they work and in many cases, where they work from. Our channel partners have never been more valuable to the market or more vulnerable, which is why we continue to innovate – not only by delivering security and networking technologies as services, but also SaaS sales enablement and success. Our investment in the Cloud Specialisation programme is a milestone in our journey to becoming one of the IT channel’s top SaaS innovators and sales enablers.”

The Infoblox Cloud Specialisation programme is part of the Infoblox BuildingBLOX partner programme.
