Trend Micro Asserts Channel Commitment in SAAS
As businesses continue their rapid adoption and migration to cloud-based services, Trend Micro is pledging to keep working with its solution providers in the delivery and management of software-as-a-service accounts.
Demonstrating its commitment to working with channel partners on services, Trend Micro announced its Hosted Security for the Channel program, a new initiative to educate and enable solution providers on the mechanics and benefits of working with a hosted provider in the delivery of SAAS security applications.
According to Channel Insider's 2009 Market Pulse Report, SAAS is second only to its cousin managed services in terms of growth potential and profitability for solution providers. Research firm IDC says the SAAS marketplace will grow more than 40 percent over the next three years.
Through program changes and new product offerings, Trend Micro says it's demonstrating its commitment to always working with channel partners on product and services sales, and ensuring that its solution providers are not cut out of the SAAS revenue stream.
