DALLAS – July 30, 2014 – Masergy Communications Inc., a global leader in managed networking, advanced cyber security and cloud services, announced today it has been included in the prestigious CRN 2014 Network Connectivity Services Partner Program Guide (PPG), which highlights the service providers and technology vendors whose offerings provide the underpinnings of today’s mission-critical network connectivity solutions. Partners prefer working with Masergy because of its innovative customizable solutions, comprehensive channel and solution engineering support and its industry leading client experience.
Deep partnerships between IT solution providers and the telecom industry’s master agents and voice and Internet service providers (ISPs) are becoming the norm as customers demand a comprehensive service and support relationship for their voice, data and cloud service needs. As these industries converge, CRN’s annual Network Connectivity Services PPG has become a critical resource that allows solution providers to locate vendors offering complementary connectivity solutions and services.
Masergy’s partners include value-added resellers, master agents, OEMs, systems integrators, independent consultants, and more. The company recently announced its new Platinum and Gold partners for FY15 in its Global Partner Program. The Platinum and Gold partnerstatus is based on sales performance for Fiscal Year 2014 which ended June 30, 2014. Masergy continues to offer an exceptional experience for its channel partners with its unparalleled end to end client engagement model.
“Masergy’s partner program continues to grow and expand, fueled by our latest offerings such as Security as a Service, Cloud Marketplace and global UCaaS complementing our Managed Cloud Network solutions,” said Chuck Ward, Vice President of Global Channel at Masergy. “We are proud CRN has selected us to be included among the top channel providers.”
“As network solution providers expand their businesses to provide the cloud and connectivity services their customers demand, telecom agents and ISPs are eyeing the IT channel as an additional source of revenue and an in-road to a whole new set of clients,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, publisher of CRN. “We’re witnessing a fundamental change in the IT industry as two formerly disparate types of solution and service providers become one. Through resources like the CRN Network Connectivity Services Partner Program Guide, solution providers seeking partners are better able to identify and connect with organizations specifically chosen for their channel-savvy go-to-market strategies and the enthusiastic and creative ways they are embracing these shared opportunities.”
The Network Connectivity Services Partner Program Guide will be featured in the August issue of CRN, the top news source for solution providers and the IT channel, and will be available online at www.crn.com.
