ALEX QUINONEZ OF CYBEROAM RECOGNIZED AS A “2010 CHANNEL CHIEF” BY EVERYTHING CHANNEL’S CRN
Strong leadership with drive for making reseller margins cited
Woburn MA, 24 February 2010
Cyberoam (www.cyberoam.com) a leading provider of identity-based Unified Threat Management (UTM) security appliances, today announced that its own Alex Quinonez, VP of Americas, has been named a 2010 Channel Chief by the Everything Channel’s CRN. Channel Chiefs are leaders in creating effective channel programs for solution providers. They consistently defend, promote and execute effective channel partner programs and strategies.
Quinonez was selected as a CRN Channel Chief for his management of some 1,000 resellers worldwide of which 65% receive profit margins between 30-40%. The Cyberoam Partner Program is divided among three tiers of commitment (Silver, Gold, Platinum) and every partner is eligible to receive a free UTM demo appliance, live 24/7 telephone support and opportunities to become a Strategic Partner with promises of higher margins.
Unlike other IT security vendors, Cyberoam offers the community an ROI calculator (http:cyberoam/servlet/Roi) that determines the amount of time (in days) partners or customers can expect to spend before they recoup their investment in a Cyberoam solution. Targeted end user industries include SMB, education, healthcare and financial services.
Says Quinonez, “The Cyberoam Reseller Program offers distinct partnering opportunities based on a reseller’s business model and customer focus. Our Partners consist of value-added resellers (VARs), corporate resellers, direct marketers and retailers. Our program is suited to help partners develop revenue opportunities and grow profits, providing expertise and resources customers require.”

For the eighth consecutive year the Channel Chiefs were chosen based by Everything Channel editorial on criteria including policy and program innovations made during the past year, the amount of revenue their company generates through partners, their willingness to speak out publicly on behalf of the channel, and the number of years they have dedicated to channel activities.
“Being named a Channel Chief is one of the most prestigious honors in the IT industry. This year’s Channel Chiefs offers tremendous insight into the who’s who of the Channel,” said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, Everything Channel. “Top channel executives consistently ensure that the Channel’s voice is heard when strategic decisions are being made and continually nurture mutually profitable relationships. We applaud the 2010 Channel Chiefs for their successful partner programs and strategies.”
