SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- SonicWALL, Inc., the leading provider of intelligent network security and data protection solutions, has been selected by Business Solutions magazine as one of the Best Channel Vendors of 2011. Value Added Resellers (VARs) participating in Business Solutions' annual survey ranked SonicWALL in the top five percent of all network security vendors for its reliable product offerings and exceptional product features.
"SonicWALL certainly earned its spot on this year's Business Solutions magazine Best Channel Vendors list," said Sue Bresee, publisher of Business Solutions magazine. "SonicWALL rated exceptionally well overall in the network security category, but particularly high in 'Product Reliability' and 'Product Features.' Our survey results clearly show that SonicWALL has many satisfied resellers."
SonicWALL's ranking is based on survey results gathered from mid-September through early October 2010 from more than 2,400 verified Business Solutions magazine subscribers. VARs were asked to cast their votes in a Web-based survey to rate their partners on their overall VAR margins, overall channel program, service/support and friendliness, as well as vendors' product features, reliability and innovation. Scores were then calculated by Penn State University and Business Solutions to determine the top five percent of vendors in each category for the 2011 Best Channel Vendors award.
Reflecting its channel focus, SonicWALL recently introduced SonicOS 5.8, featuring application intelligence, control and visualization capabilities for the award-winning SonicWALL E-Class, NSA and TZ Next-Generation Firewall product lines. With these new features, SonicWALL partners can extend the protection of SonicWALL Next-Generation Firewalls beyond blocking traditional malware threats to include intelligent traffic management of applications. This extended capability provides partners with powerful tools for application bandwidth management, access controls, data leakage prevention, restrictions on the transfer of specific files and documents, and much more.
"Being recognized as one of the best network security vendors in the industry by the readers of Business Solutions is validation of our dedication to the channel," said Ted Hulsy, director of channel marketing at SonicWALL. "High scores in product reliability and product features demonstrate that SonicWALL continues to provide its partners with industry-leading network security products and services that address the most pressing security and control challenges in today's SMB and enterprise networks."
