Tigera has launched a worldwide partner program to meet demand from the growing adoption of containers, Kubernetes, and microservices, which has created security and observability challenges for enterprises.
The program is aimed at all types of partners — solution provider resellers, systems integrators, consultants, and distributors that have competencies in AWS, Azure, GKE, Red Hat Openshift, and Suse Rancher Kubernetes, with practices related to DevOps, microservices, networking, and security.
Tigera’s Calico Cloud and Calico Enterprise provide automated capabilities that can be used to secure, observe, and quickly resolve performance issues and troubleshoot microservices.
The partner program opens doors for technology, services, and solution providers to build stronger relationships with their customers, expand their portfolios, and boost margins by building their expertise and ability to offer security and observability solutions for containers, Kubernetes, and microservices deployments.
Amit Gupta, vice president of business development and product management, Tigera, said: “Now, we’re formalizing what has been an ad hoc network of partners as we see increasing inbound activity from partners of all types. This builds on our existing relationships with partners in North America and Europe that include AWS, Azure, Fortinet, Red Hat, and Suse Rancher, where we’re already working together on customer engagements.”
Tigera will provide partners with sales leads, incentives, technical assistance, and product education. Partners can register deals and receive compensation for referral sales as well.
