-Neustar, Inc. (NYSE: NSR), a trusted, neutral provider of real-time information services, today announced its Cloud Security Partner Program, a channel partnership program for a select group of strategic business partners and cloud service providers. The Neustar Cloud Security Partner Program enables its channel partners to capitalize on the growing adoption of cloud security solutions by delivering Neustar Security Solutions to its customers. Neustar Security Solutions offer flexible deployment methods for a variety of industry-leading cloud services, including DNS and DDoS mitigation.
According to IDC FutureScape: Worldwide IT Industry 2017 Predictions1, “Many enterprises have shifted to a ‘cloud first’ strategy over the past several years. Over the next several years — as two-thirds or more of IT spending shifts to the cloud — many organizations (and IT suppliers) will get steadily closer to ‘cloud only.’”
“Over the past few years, delivering security and infrastructure services via the cloud has become a pillar in the business plans of high-growth channel partners – the time for channels is now,” said Lee Finck, Vice President, Worldwide Channels, Neustar. “Our new channel program takes advantage of this timing by providing a mature, well-proven portfolio of DNS, DDoS mitigation and IP intelligence services to complement our partner’s existing solution stack.”
The Neustar Cloud Security Partner Program provides an industry-leading cloud security solutions stack and service level agreements (SLAs), complemented with extensive training and support. Neustar UltraDNS and Neustar SiteProtect flexibly deliver security, reliability and performance with the expertise that can only be achieved from managing one of the largest and fastest DNS and DDoS mitigation networks in the world. Neustar works with its technology partners to deliver multiple deployment methods, including hybrid and on premise solutions, so channel partners have the ultimate flexibility to meet their customers’ needs.
The Neustar Cloud Security Partner Program is available for select strategic commercial and cloud security service providers that want the benefit of integrating the Neustar platform to provide its world-class protection at scale. Neustar offers the core elements of the most successful go-to-market approach for partners – the right people, strong partner support, and a high-integrity opportunity registration process. Key program benefits include automated opportunity registration, market development funds, marketing assets, go-to-market plans, training and support, and dedicated partner account executives.
“Limelight is delighted to be working in partnership with Neustar to provide technology and services that are essential for industry-leading security solutions,” said Simon Beech, Head of Partnerships, EMEA for Limelight Networks.
