Secureworks Earns 5-Star Rating in 2023 CRN® Partner Program Guide

ATLANTA, Ga., March 27 2023 — Secureworks® (NASDAQ: SCWX), a global leader in cybersecurity, has been recognized by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, with a prestigious 5-star rating in its 2023 Partner Program Guide.

This annual guide offers essential information to solution providers such as managed service providers (MSPs), value-added resellers (VARs), systems integrators, and strategic service providers as they explore technology manufacturers' partner programs to find the vendors that will best support their business needs. The 5-star rating is awarded to the companies that go above and beyond in their commitment to nurturing strong, profitable, and successful channel partnerships.

The award of CRN's five-star rating comes after Secureworks unveiled its Partner First strategy in November 2022 focused on its flexible, quick to market, highly profitable and industry-leading Taegis® ManagedXDR (MDR) and Extended Detection and Reponse (XDR) solutions. With its open framework, the Taegis platform empowers partners to ensure customers can maximize their security investments for today, as well as provide them with the confidence to enhance their cyber posture in the future by aligning cybersecurity investment with business risk.

"Our partners are pivotal to our business, and we are committed to continually investing in our partner ecosystem so we can continue growing together," said Ian Bancroft, CRO, Secureworks. "With Partner First we have aligned our resources to deliver the best outcomes for our partners and customers. Throughout 2023, we will be launching new initiatives and enriching existing ones as we continue to respond to our partners and flex to meet their needs."

For the channel partner community, a critical factor when assessing which IT and security manufacturers, service providers, and distributors to team with is the breadth and depth of the partner programs those companies offer. Strong elements such as financial incentives, sales and marketing assistance, training and certification, technical support, and more can set a vendor apart and play a key role in boosting partners' long-term growth.

In the 2023 CRN Partner Program Guide, vendors were evaluated based on program requirements and offerings such as partner training and education, pre- and post-sales support, marketing programs and resources, technical support, and communication. Secureworks was also noted in January as one of CRN's 10 Hot Companies to Watch in 2023.

"In today's world, the need for innovation is greater than ever," said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. "Solution providers seek vendors that can keep pace with their developing business and evolving client needs. CRN's 2023 Partner Program Guide delivers deep insight into the strengths of each program, spotlighting the vendors dedicated to supporting their partner community and pushing positive change throughout the IT channel."

The 2023 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April 2023 issue of CRN and online at
