Benefits of the Samsung Knox partner program are divided into three tiers: Silver, Gold and Platinum. Entry-level partners, or Silver, gain access to a variety of information and surveys and are able to utilize the Samsung Knox Partner Portal and leverage the Samsung Knox Partner Logo.
The Gold-level tier adds eligibility for opportunity registration, 'Not For Resale Product' licenses, extra online training and assessments to the list of partner perks, as well as access to marketing development funds and partner events.
Finally, Platinum partners can also take advantage of free sales tools, an awards and advisory program, 24-hour technical support, and product and program certifications.
Requirements for an entry-level partnership consist of a registration form, acceptance into the program and a partner profile. A Platinum-level partnership, meanwhile, requires a minimum quarterly revenue target of $125,000, a variety of sales and support training and a minimum of three Samsung Knox Technical Specialist Accreditations.
Samsung Mobile B2B consultant Robinette said Samsung Knox expects to add five to 10 partners per country in the next two to six months. United States and Europe, she said, will be the strongest geographic areas out the gate.
Though DMI's Musliner said he recognizes Samsung Knox is just getting started, he hopes it will take hold sooner rather than later. The opportunity for partners to wrap around services and develop apps to use within Samsung Knox, Musliner said, is near limitless.
