PORTSMOUTH, New Hampshire, March 18 /PRNewswire/ --

- Program Enables Partners to Offer a Highly Differentiated Solution for the Rapidly Evolving IT Security Market

NitroSecurity, Inc. (http://www.nitrosecurity.com), a provider of high performance, unified information security solutions, today launched its Global Channel Partner Program, NitroConnect. The program provides security centric resellers with training, tools and highly differentiated solutions to increase the value, and return, of their product and service offerings.

NitroSecurity's integrated security solutions enables businesses of all sizes to lower their cost and increase the performance of IT security deployments and operations. The NitroConnect Partner Program allows resellers to pass these benefits on to customers through NitroSecurity's award winning products: NitroView Enterprise Security Manager (http://www.nitrosecurity.com/products/nitroview/) (A Unified Security Management (USM) appliance that combines Log Management, Network Analysis, and Security Information & Event Management (SIEM) into a single solution) and NitroGuard Intrusion Prevention System (http://www.nitrosecurity.com/products/nitroguard/). NitroConnect partners can differentiate themselves by delivering a fully unified security solution at a lower cost, thereby increasing their profit margins.

Partners can join NitroConnect at three different levels: -- Authorized Resellers: ability to offer pre/post sales and technical support; -- Solution Partners: ability to offer pre/post sales, technical support and professional services, including, install, training and consulting; and, -- Premier Solution Partners: ability to offer all capabilities of Solution Partners, plus capacity to handle high-volume sales.

Many top tier companies are already part of NitroConnect, including ProActive Networks and Security, which offers a diverse mix of products and services to address various network security needs; and Telonic, a leading System Integrator in Germany.

"NitroSecurity's channel partner program is not only comprehensive, but it also takes into account the true value added from the reseller/integrator," said David Sinnott, president, ProActive Networks and Security. "We had one telco customer that replaced Cisco MARS with NitroView, and was so impressed with the system's capability, pricing and accelerated delivery schedule that they immediately placed an order for additional NitroGuard IPS devices to enhance visibility into their internal networks."

"NitroSecurity is an excellent complement to our range of security and measurement products," said Andreas Schlechter, managing director, Telonic. "With Nitro's suite of products, we can more effectively meet the requirements and demands of customers to collect, correlate and manage logs, events and alarms in real time."

NitroConnect offers extensive training and tools to get partners up to speed and certified on the NitroSecurity suite of products. Full support from pre-sales assistance to professional services is available, and partners can utilize NitroConnect PartnerWeb for easy access to product, marketing, and operational resources. Partners also have the opportunity to participate in joint seminars and webinars to further increase visibility in the industry. Other program benefits include deal registration, market development funds, and assigned partner sales and technical managers for Premier Solution Partners.

"Effective partner strategies are a crucial component for any technology company," said Ken Levine, chief executive officer, NitroSecurity. "NitroSecurity's product family helps partner companies diversify their offerings and meet the network security requirements today's enterprise demands. We already have a healthy roster of channel partners participating in NitroConnect and look forward to growing those numbers and forging additional mutually beneficial relationships with security-focused companies."

NitroSecurity is currently seeking companies that are knowledgeable and experienced in the IT security market and can operate independently to join NitroConnect. Today, NitroConnect extends throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and Europe, with plans to expand into Asia-Pac later this year.
