Netskope Updates Evolve Partner Program for MSPs

 Netskope, a leader in secure access service edge (SASE), announced a managed service provider (MSP) program, which is an extension of its Evolve Partner Program.

The program helps partners expand their revenue streams with an additional route to market and profitable service offerings. It provides flexible licensing options, dedicated MSP partner resources, and a technical support accreditation that complements the Netskope Service Delivery Specialization.

The demand for cybersecurity-managed services represents one of the most significant growth opportunities for the partner ecosystem, according to Canalys. The market opportunity is expected to grow to U.S. $70 billion in 2023 as threat levels rise and the skills shortage widens.

The escalating need for more highly specialized cybersecurity talent is a growing challenge that is fueling demand and opportunity for managed services. The Netskope MSP program enables partners to capitalize on the market trend and address evolving procurement preferences.

Netskope’s SASE platform includes cloud, data and network security. Partners have the flexibility to offer the full spectrum or a portion of these solutions in a packaged managed service offering to their customers.

“Netskope continues to build programs that unlock as much opportunity as possible for our global partner ecosystem,” said Kristin Carnes, vice president of Global Channel Programs and Strategy at Netskope. “The formalized Managed Service Provider Program arms partners with the support and tools they need to successfully build out managed service offerings and deliver a fully managed Netskope SASE solution to their customers.”

The Netskope MSP Program features an as-a-service business model framework and includes the availability of tools and resources to support partners as they develop and deliver managed Netskope SASE offerings:

  • Partner licensing and packages – Includes simplified and flexible SKU pricing, solution packages across the Netskope product portfolio, and a Deal Protection Program to register MSP opportunities.
  • Technical accreditation and support – Two partner technical training tracks dedicated to implementation and support, including the introduction of five training modules, access to a dedicated global support portal, and a MSP Partner support process.
  • Dedicated partner portal – Introduction of a dedicated MSP Portal exclusively accessible to Netskope MSP Partners includes tools, trainings, support and access to the MSP Opportunity Registration.

“The Netskope MSP Program is the next step for our partners on their path toward offering a fully managed SASE solution,” said Dave Rogers, senior vice president of Alliances and Global Channel Sales at Netskope. “The goal of this evolution is to empower our partners to deliver the expertise and management our customers need, all while expanding their portfolio to include high-value, margin rich services.”
