Q1 Labs Receives 5-Star Rating and Channel Chief Award in CRN’s 2011 Partner Programs Guide

Annual guide and 5-Star designation identifies the IT channel’s best vendor partner programs

WALTHAM, Mass., March 28, 2011 – Q1 Labs, a global provider of total security intelligence solutions, today announced it has been recognized in Everything Channel’s 2011 Partner Program Guide as one of North America’s top information technology (IT) vendors, having received a 5-Star Partner rating for its Q1-Alliance Channel Partner program.

In addition, Q1 Labs also announced that its Senior Vice President of Marketing and Channels, Tom Turner, was recently named a Channel Chief by Everything Channel’s CRN, for the second consecutive year. Channel Chiefs are leaders in creating effective channel programs for solution providers. They consistently defend, promote and execute effective channel partner programs and strategies.

CRN’s Partner Programs Guide and 5-Star Partner ratings serve as the definitive list of vendors who have robust partner programs or products that service solution providers offer directly to the IT channel. The annual list recognizes the vendors who offer solution providers the best possible partnering elements for channel success.

Q1 Labs’ Q1-Alliance Partner domestic and international program helps channel partners grow their businesses and expand their markets by selling Q1 Labs’ acclaimed and in-demand Security Intelligence products and services. The Q1-Alliance Partner Program helps partners to respond to the needs of new customers, strengthen relationships with existing customers, and open the potential for greater sales and profits.

“The companies listed on the 2011 Partner Programs Guide represent the best channel programs in the market today Of those, only a few get our five-star award, based on their commitment to the channel, breadth of program offerings and services offered to their partners. Each of these organizations understands that technology alone does not make for a successful channel program. By focusing on delivering a comprehensive partner program, vendors and solution providers can work together to drive business opportunities and revenue,” said Kelley Damore, VP and Editorial Director, for Everything Channel’s CRN.

“We are thrilled to have our Q1-Alliance Program recognized as a best-in-class program for the second year in a row,” said Tom Turner, SVP of Marketing and Channels for Q1 Labs. “Our mission to be ‘easy to do business with’ rings true every year, as we continue to deepen our existing partner relationships, and as we develop new ones. The global Q1 Labs channel team is honored to have Everything Channel acknowledge our dedication to our partners.”

The 2011 Partner Programs Guide and 5-Star Partners listing will be featured in the March 28th issue of CRN, and can be found here.
