(NYSE MKT: GSB), a pioneer and worldwide leader in the secure and reliable exchange of business information, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given the Company a 5-Star rating in its 2017 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of partner programs from technology vendors that provide products and services through the IT channel.
