Struthers: Changes Ahead For Partner Program
Struthers told partners that McAfee will be revamping its Security Alliance partner program over the next year, streamlining the five partner programs the company inherited through acquisition. McAfee is also temporarily removing the rebate payout cap and rewarding registered renewals with a $200 payout to each new renewal, Struthers said. The company also launched a new "Everyone's a Winner" theme promotion, which runs into the first quarter of 2014 with payout opportunities to active partners to win a trip to the World Cup in Rio De Janiero. McAfee also trained 150 channel employees, building out a strong team with the right skills and business acumen to work with partners, he said.
