Zeus Technology Certified by Everything Channel's VARBusiness as a Gold 5 Star Overall Winner in its 2008 Partner Programs Guide

14 April 2008

Zeus Technology, a leading provider of application traffic management software, today announced that it has been recognized by Everything Channel's VARBusiness as one of North America’s top information-technology (IT) vendors for its Zeus Accredited Partner Program.

Zeus Technology was certified as a Gold 5-Star Overall Winner in VARBusinesses' 2008 Partner Programs Guide (PPG), a guide that acknowledges the commitment and strength of a vendor's partner programs for its Channel resellers, IT integrators, and technology consultants.

Zeus Technology was recognized as a Gold 5-Star Overall Winner out of a field of hundreds of vendor programs reviewed by VARBusiness. Zeus’ partner program additionally won Silver 5-Star awards in all six of the categories reviewed and measured, including sales support, marketing support, partner profitability, channel operations, partner recruitment, and communications. VARBusiness cited Zeus Technology as one of the “12 Partner Programs to Watch”.

The Zeus partner program offers resellers revenue-driving programs to help them deliver Layer 4-7 Management Acceleration and Security solutions making networked and web-enabled applications faster, more reliable, scalable and easier to manage. Designed to provide partners with the training, tools and marketing support needed to deliver advanced traffic management software to their customers, the Zeus Accredited Partner Program includes technical and pre-sales training, privileged access to Zeus systems engineering team, and full marketing support to generate visibility and actionable sales leads. The program also provides pre-qualified leads from Zeus’ sales and marketing team.

Zeus’ partners also gain from the benefits that can be reaped from selling software rather than hardware as customers increasingly prefer on-demand solutions such as Zeus Technology’s software.

“Zeus has assembled a superior partner program for channel success because everything is simple and straightforward — including pricing,” said Barry Bourdage, President of TechPro, Inc. “The people at Zeus are sharply focused on meeting TechPro’s requirements and together we actively develop strategies that meet and exceed the needs of our customers. The result goes far beyond that of a seller relationship and is a true business partnership that keeps our customers happy.”

Of the hundreds of vendor program entries reviewed for this year's guide, Zeus Technology was one of the coveted Gold 5-Star Overall Winners chosen in this 14th annual VARBusiness Partner Programs Guide survey. Zeus Technology was also cited as one of the “12 Partner Programs to Watch” as it received top ratings in all Silver 5-Star award categories: sales support, marketing support, partner profitability, channel operations, partner recruitment, and communications.

“We are pleased to accept this prestigious honor of the VARBusiness Gold 5-Star rating for our Zeus Accredited Partner Program,” said Paul Brennan, Chairman and CEO of Zeus Technology. “We are now 100-percent channel-focused and our partner program continues to expand across the globe with dedicated and experienced resellers. We look forward to working closely with each of our partners to help them achieve their business objectives.”
