News Facts

  *Aerohive’s North America channel partners are all working to further the
    reach of Aerohive’s cloud-managed networking solutions. With one of the
    industry’s most aggressive channel programs, Aerohive aligns closely with
    partners to ensure success by providing regional channel teams, marketing
    support, technical education and sales training.
  *Partners were evaluated in 2012 based on contribution and performance
    across four categories, including top bookings, technical expertise,
    engagement and education. The three winners had the top bookings in their
    regions and have shown quarter over quarter growth since joining the
    Aerohive Partner Program approximately three years ago. Partners
    demonstrated technical expertise through their strong understanding of
    Aerohive’s technology and an ability to execute on it. Partners scored
    high on engagement by closely aligning with Aerohive’s sales team, and
    high on education through their active participation and cooperation in
    events, planning and company certifications.
  *All three award recipients – Accuvant, SynerComm, Inc. and Whalley
    Computer Associates – are longstanding partners working closely with
    Aerohive for over three years.
  *In recent months, Aerohive has expanded its channel team and appointed
    vice president of channel sales Kurt Mills to increase support for the
    thriving partner community and to guide Aerohive’s rapid growth in the hot
    cloud-managed networking space.
  *As Aerohive scales its partner-driven business in 2013, the company plans
    to provide stronger alignment with sales, more education and certification
    for partners and increase accessibility to technologies with tools that
    better enable partners to sell them.
