Tufin®, the leader in network security policy management and continuous compliance automation, today announced that it has been recognized by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, in its 2023 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide offers essential information to members of the IT channel ecosystem as they explore technology manufacturers’ partner programs to find the vendors that will best support their business needs. “We are proud that Tufin is a channel-first company, and we recognize that our channel partners are the best way for us to amplify our message that security policy automation is a strategic advantage for our customers,” said Jeff Wilmot, CRO at Tufin. “I want to thank CRN for this honor and congratulate our channel team and Tufin’s partner network across the globe. You are the reason Tufin continues to be the leader in network security policy automation.” Tufin’s channel partner program is multi-tiered, partnering with distributors and a two-level reseller program of Gold and Authorized partners. A variety of benefits designed to promote and enhance partners’ skills, facilitate business growth, and maximize profitability are offered.

In the 2023 Partner Program Guide, vendors were evaluated based on program requirements and offerings such as partner training and education, pre- and post-sales support, marketing programs and resources, technical support, and communication. “In today’s world, the need for innovation is greater than ever,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “Solution providers seek vendors that can keep pace with their developing business and evolving client needs.

Impartner and Amanda AI Team Up to Automate Continuous Optimization of Paid Google Search Ads

PR Newswire | May 04, 2023

Impartner, the fastest-growing and most award-winning provider of channel management technologies, today announced its partnership with Amanda AI, an Automation as a Service (AAAS) company, to power its Google Ads for the Channel solution. This collaboration is fueled by Impartner's nearly 30 years of experience in providing channel solutions, along with Google's market data and systems and Amanda AI's autonomous AI system to optimize channel campaigns and results. As the economy wavers, organizations are searching for cost-effective ways to accelerate pipeline growth. For many, that means finding ways to generate more revenue through an indirect channel. In a recent report, McKinsey & Company wrote that efficiency "means more effectively deploying resources to where they matter the most" and most companies are realizing that selling with an active ecosystem of partners is the most effective and efficient path to market. Modern marketers typically spend over half of their budget on Paid Media Advertising, using platforms such as Google Ads and LinkedIn. Impartner's Google Ads for the Channel lets marketers bring their ecosystem of partners into the paid media strategy, increasing lead conversion by 27% while reducing cost per lead by a staggering 75%. Now, with the integration of Amanda AI's powerful engine, organizations and their ecosystem partners will be able to automate campaigns to save time and increase cost-effectiveness. The platform constantly tests keywords, ads, bids, audiences and budgets to optimize leads based on the highest probability of conversion and progress toward a campaign's goals. "Partnering with Amanda AI has already driven an increase in pipeline conversions and tangible results for many Impartner customers," said Gary Sabin, VP of Product at Impartner. "In today's uncertain economy, Impartner is bullish on the immense indirect sales opportunity that we believe will generate revenue growth. We can't wait to show others what they're missing out on and how Impartner can help." Xerox, among other leading companies, utilizes Google Ads for the Channel to centralize and streamline all partner Google Ads campaigns and landing pages on a large scale with partners across Europe and the U.S. The system is designed to incorporate local partner information and geo-target customers. AI tools are then used to track and optimize ad content, click rates and conversions based on real-time actions. After successfully piloting the program with 11 partners, Xerox has now expanded the partner marketing automation program to over 100 premier partners. "Google Ads has become our first source of leads for our partners across all geographies," said Isabelle Pampelune, SMB Business Development Lead, EMEA Channels Organization, Xerox. "With the help of this solution-based technology from Impartner, we have already seen a dramatic reduction in cost per lead and look forward to optimizing our campaigns even more so with the addition of Amanda AI." With the implementation of Amanda AI, Xerox and corporations alike will have full access to deliver consistent, relevant and compliant messaging within campaigns. "After seeing Xerox's success with Google Ads for the Channel, we look forward to how Amanda AI's addition will propel the future of this solution," said John Lojek, Google Strategic Partnerships. "As it stands, it is increasing leads at an impressive rate with no additional effort or advertising expertise needed by its partners, proving that the best is yet to come with this new partnership." To learn more about how Impartner helps corporations from the smallest to the largest enterprises like Honeywell, Qualtrics and Vertiv grow their channel revenue by an average of 32.3% in the first year of use alone.
