MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--()--NCP engineering today announced that it has been awarded a 5-Star rating in The Channel Company’s 2015 Partner Programs Guide. The guide is an annual directory of best-in-class technology vendors that service solution providers or offer products through the IT channel.

The rating acknowledges NCP’s ability to build exceptional partner relationships across the ever-changing technology landscape. With three partnership categories available for selling its Secure Entry Clients to Secure Enterprise Solution , NCP enables reseller partners to address customer VPN needs for businesses of all sizes.

“Remote access security has become more and more of a priority for both enterprises and small business owners,” said Patrick Oliver Graf, CEO of NCP engineering. “It’s important to provide top-notch VPN solutions that network administrators can rely on to ensure company data is secure; as we continue to expand our channel partner program, we are thrilled to be recognized by The Channel Company as a CRN 5-Star Partner Programs Guide Winner.”

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

“Solution providers have many choices when it comes to selecting vendor partners,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “Identifying the right vendor, with the right technologies, and the right approach, can make all the difference. Our annual Partner Programs 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.”
