In addition, the program is dynamically scalable when license needs change and deploys in minutes over the internet.

This IT consumption model is a major opportunity for partners, and our new program allows them to manage endpoint costs predictably, gives them flexibility to scale their business up and down as required and drive additional recurring revenue,” said Steve Thompson, Vice President of Global Channels at Stratodesk.
