New Druva MSP Program Improves Time To Revenue With SaaS Solution: Exclusive

CRNtv’s Jennifer Zarate talks with Druva Global Channel Chief Robert Brower about the company’s new Managed Service Provider (MSP) program, providing MSP partners with a SaaS-based delivery model “which offers a zero-touch onboarding experience and no infrastructure to maintain.”

As solution providers up their game to meet customer demand for the hottest technology and the latest in consumption-based pricing, the right vendor partner program is key to their success.

CRNtv welcomes vendors to The Partner Program Pitch to share with the channel what makes their channel program unique, starting with an elevator pitch on why solution providers should join their partner program.

In this episode of The Partner Program Pitch, hear Robert Brower, senior vice president of Global Partners and Alliances at Druva,, introduce the company’s first-ever Managed Service Provider (MSP) program as part of its Druva Compass Partner Program, “designed to empower MSPs and accelerate their customers’ cloud transformation with a resilient, simplified data protection service.”

“The MSP program at Druva [offers] fastest time to value for our partners; it’s the industry’s most trusted solution in terms of resiliency; outstanding incentives for our partners participating in the program,” Brower told CRNtv. “It’s built around their business, not them trying to adapt their models to our product.”
