Frank Bergknecht, CEO at .XNC – Xenologitcs Networks & Communication Gmbh

At Spark 2021, Clavister announced a new Partner Program 2.0 that provides enhanced benefits to partners and gives them flexibility to engage in one or more pathways to success. The revamped partner program also introduces Partner Advisory Board for closer collaboration and innovation, enabling partners to unlock benefits from new offerings faster and earlier than the rest of the market.

Spark 2021 was attended by close to 300 very attentive partners who gave a overwhelmingly positive response to the event (97% happy with the event content) and came back from the event feeling positive about Clavister’s future direction (73%).   

“We came back from Spark feeling very excited, learning about Clavister’s new business model and a simpler pricing structure to be competitive in our joint business” said Martin Meerman, CEO at NewChannel, The Netherlands. “We are seeing an exponential rise in the mobile workforce coupled with the move to cloud, transitioning data, applications, devices and users outside of traditional enterprise data centre and network and this calls for newer approaches to cybersecurity. Spark 2021 reassured us that Clavister is moving into the right direction, especially with the move towards SASE.”
