KnowBe4 Launches New Partner Program and Portal to Better Enable Channel Partners

November 12, 2019

Tampa Bay, FL, Nov. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KnowBe4, the provider of the world’s largest security awareness training and simulated phishing platform, today announced it has launched a new partner program and portal to better enable channel partners to deliver best in class security training. KnowBe4’s Tony Jennings, SVP of global channel sales, has led this initiative since coming onboard with the organization a few months ago.

The new KnowBe4 Partner Portal is the central location for KnowBe4’s channel partners to learn more about the organization and its products, gather sales and marketing collateral, track sales progress and register new deals. The KnowBe4 Reseller Partner Program is a guide to help partners succeed by providing new benefits and requirements for closing deals.

“When I started in this position a few months ago, one of my first objectives was to revamp our partner program to improve and bring a consistent process to the way we work with partners,” said Jennings. “We also wanted an easier way for partners to engage with KnowBe4, which is why we created a new partner portal. With this new portal, partners can learn more about us, get sales and marketing collateral they need to close deals and even register new deals. This is an exciting time to work with our organization, and we look forward to welcoming new partners, while strengthening the relationships we have with existing partners.”

Jennings is an experienced leader in transforming channel and partner business in both the software and hardware industries. He is responsible for developing scalable, effective channel sales models, strategy and partner programs; which in turn drive growth. Prior to his role at KnowBe4, he was vice president of channels and partners for CA Technologies where he was responsible for North America indirect sales, all partner ecosystems and net-new revenue across all indirect routes to market. Jennings also worked for McAfee and was educated in South Africa.
