Versa Networks Earns Premier 5-Star Rating in CRN's Partner Program Guide for Fourth Consecutive Year

Versa Networks, the global leader in AI/ML-powered Unified Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), today announced it has for the fourth year in a row earned a prestigious 5-Star rating from CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company. With Versa selling 100 percent through the channel, the Versa ACE (Accelerate, Captivate, Engage) Partner Program was launched in 2021 to serve VARs, SIs, SPs, and MSPs.

Versa's global program expands the ecosystem of highly engaged partners delivering unique customer value through its differentiated Versa Unified SASE and Versa Titan solutions. The program offers the industry's first SASE accreditation, with partners rewarded for achieving competency and expertise in their specialty areas. Partners are provided sales and technical training and are eligible for discounts and marketing benefits to generate new revenue opportunities.

"CRN's 5-Star rating - our fourth since the launch of the Versa ACE Partner Program - is a huge testament to our unwavering commitment to create and offer an industry-leading partner program," said John Atchison, Head of Global Channel Marketing with Versa. "Versa has a long history of working in the channel, and partner relationships are core to our growth and mutual success. We ontinually strive to provide our partners with the foundation they need to capitalize on the $17B SASE market opportunity."

The 5-Star rating highlighted in the CRN 2024 Partner Program Guide is awarded to the companies that have built their partner programs to go above and beyond in their commitment to nurturing strong, profitable, and successful channel partnerships. CRN evaluated vendors based on program requirements and offerings such as partner training and education, pre- and post-sales support, marketing programs and resources, technical support, and communication.

"Recognition on this list reflects the value of the spotlighted vendor partner programs and their commitment to evolving with solution providers and supporting IT channel success," said Jennifer Follett, VP, U.S. Content and Executive Editor, CRN, at The Channel Company. "This recognition empowers solution providers to discover vendors that keep pace with the evolving requirements of their business and their clients. With CRN's 2024 Partner Program Guide, solution providers can access deep insights into the unique strengths of each partner program and vendors who demonstrate dedication to their partner community."
