AppSense, the global leader of secure user environment management (UEM), today announced that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has given AppSense a 5-Star rating in its 2016 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program Guide rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs. In addition, CRN has named AppSense to its inaugural 2016 Security 100 list as well as the CRN 2016 Virtualization 50 list.

To determine the 2016 5-Star ratings, 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.

The AppSense Partner Program offers extensive benefits to partners across each international region. As a result, partners can have confidence in knowing that the AppSense sales and support teams are incentivized primarily on channel success. This channel-focused model is matched with generous Market Development Fund earnings, benefits and resources that are directly aligned with partners' expectations. The AppSense Partner Program features Silver, Gold, Gold+ and Platinum Partner levels, and includes a comprehensive Deal Registration Protection Program. The program also features a dedicated AppSense Executive sponsor, a dedicated partner page on the AppSense website and the free use of AppSense Insight, a granular endpoint data collection solution for informed analysis and decision making, for proof of concept opportunities for 90 days.

"Solution providers have more choices than ever before when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor with the right technologies and the right channel approach can mean the difference between successful adoption of a new technology or business model and an awkward, unnecessarily difficult integration," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings recognize the best channel programs available in the market today and serve as a valuable resource for solution providers looking for the right fit."

"Because solution providers are vital to our success, AppSense has increased our commitment to channel partners with a robust partner program," said Jim Airdo, Vice President of Channel, AppSense. "Our business is channel-centric and we depend on our partners to grow. By working with our channel partners to develop our mutual opportunities and revenue, we have been able to achieve greater profitability and earn long-term customer loyalty. It's an honor to be recognized by CRN with a 5-Star rating in the 2016 Partner Program Guide and to be named to the CRN 2016 Security 100 and 2016 Virtualization 50 lists."

The companies in CRN's Security 100 have demonstrated creativity and innovation in product development, as well as a strong commitment to delivering those offerings through a vibrant channel of solution providers. In addition to recognizing security technology vendors for outstanding products and services, the Security 100 list also serves as a valuable guide for solution providers trying to navigate the IT security market. The list aids prospective channel partners in identifying the vendors that can best help them improve or expand their security offerings.

Selected by CRN editors, the 2016 Virtualization 50 list recognizes technology vendors that are leading the way in meeting a growing need for state-of-the-art virtualization offerings. These vendors are instrumental in helping solution providers select and deploy the right tools for building virtualized environments -- a critical first step in transitioning customers to the cloud. In addition to honoring vendors for outstanding products and services, the list serves as a valuable guide for solution providers looking for best-in-class virtualization technology suppliers.

The 2016 Partner Program Guide, will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at The Security 100 list is available online at and the Virtualization 50 list is available online at
