Ixia Awarded 5-Star Rating in CRN’s 2015 Partner Program Guide

Annual guide recognizes the best channel partner programs in the market

CALABASAS, Calif.--()--Ixia (Nasdaq: XXIA), a leading provider of application performance and security resilience solutions, today announced it has been awarded a 5-Star rating in The Channel Company’s CRN 2015 Partner Program Guide. This annual directory is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers some of the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

Ixia’s Channel Xcelerate™ Partner Program empowers resellers to increase the value and scope of virtually every sale at every stage of the technology lifecycle while Ixia’s extensive solution portfolio features end-to-end solutions for adding critical visibility and insight into the performance of both physical and virtual networks. During the past year, Ixia’s channel program has achieved significant growth in the number of partners providing end customers with access to Ixia’s application performance and security resilience solutions.

To determine the 2015 5-Star recipients, The Channel Company’s Research team assessed each vendor’s application based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.

“Solution providers have a lot of choices when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor, with the right technologies, and the right approach can make all the difference,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star rating recognizes the best channel programs available in the market today to help solution providers determine which vendors deliver the best partner elements for their individual business goals.”

“Growth through the channel continues to be a major strategic focus for Ixia and we’re thrilled to be recognized by CRN for our efforts and market traction,” says Lori Cornmesser, Vice President of Global Channel Sales, Ixia. “As visibility, security, and virtualization give rise to greater opportunity, we look forward to working with partners to bring end-to-end, value-added solutions to customers throughout the sales and technology lifecycles.”

The 2015 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN, and online at www.CRN.com.
