San Francisco, April 1, 2019: Digital Shadows, the leader in digital risk protection, has today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has awarded it a ‘5-Star’ rating in its 2019 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide identifies the strongest and most successful partner programs in the channel today, offered by the top technology suppliers for IT products and services.

To determine the 2019 ‘5-Star’ ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed Digital Shadows partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication.

“With new technologies emerging every year, evaluating which IT vendors to partner with grows increasingly more complex for solution providers,” said Bob Skelley, CEO, The Channel Company. “We are proud the CRN Partner Program Guide has become the trusted resource to identify the most rewarding partner programs and provides crucial insight into their strengths and benefits for the channel.”

Felix Knoll, Chief Revenue Officer for Digital Shadows comments: “We’re really proud to be awarded a ‘5-Star’ rating by CRN and to be included as an elite member of their 2019 Partner Program Guide. We have made a huge investment to work with the absolute best channel partners in the US, Latin America, EMEA and Asia-Pacific. We, and our channel partners, are uniquely positioned to help organizations detect data loss, secure their online brand, and reduce their attack surface as Digital Shadows was recently named ‘Leader’ in the 2018 Forrester New Wave for Digital Risk Protection.

“Digital risk protection is an exciting new category that is rapidly gaining resonance with our customers,” says Eric Foster, COO of Fishtech Group’s CYDERES, a US partner. “Organizations are acutely aware of the risk to their brand and reputation when information assets are exposed, either unwittingly or by cyber criminals. Digital Shadows provides the solution to help to manage this risk. The market opportunity is huge.”

Stefan Strobel, CEO of Germany-based Cirosec additionally comments: “Our customers are increasingly concerned about managing their digital risk and fear the resulting consequences if this is left unmanaged such as regulatory fines, loss of intellectual property and reputational damage. As a result, the awareness and demand for digital risk protection is growing massively. Working with Digital Shadows enables us to help our customers manage this risk quickly and reduce their attack surface.”

Digital Shadows has also launched new tools for partners, including co-branding assets, local language assets, and joint Test Drive campaigns. To instantly create co-branded, professional-quality datasheets and content, partners need simply visit the Digital Shadows partner portal, upload their company logo, and select from a range of English, German, Japanese, Spanish, and French assets.

Additionally, partners can now benefit from co-branded registration pages for Digital Shadows SearchLight Test Drive, enabling organizations to touch our product within minutes, explore example alerts, and search across dark web pages, criminal forums, threat feeds, and more than 200 threat intelligence profiles of actors, tools, and campaigns.
