Head of Channel and Partnerships

We’re thrilled to announce the launch of our enhanced Global Partner Program which includes three new partner types, an improved Partner Portal, market development funds (MDF), and our new tiered rewards program. The program focuses on enabling, empowering, and supporting partners through instructor training and resources, including an instructor onboarding process, knowledge transfer of OffSec’s best practices, and access to instructor materials.

New Partner Types

First launched in April 2022, the OffSec Global Partner Program featured three partner types: Channel, Learning, and Education Partners. The Channel Partner program has expanded to include Distributors and Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) with three more now being formally introduced: 

  • Government Partners – We enable government resellers, learning partners, and prime contractors to deliver OffSec solutions and live training to government agencies and institutions.
  • Alliance Partners – We partner with global financial and consulting organizations to expand their cybersecurity knowledge for internal and client needs.
  • Strategic Accounts – An exclusive membership for large global enterprise customers to join the new Partner Program. Loyal members will receive benefits and incentives.

Dedicated Partner Support

Beyond new partner types, we’ve bolstered partner support by bringing in more industry and partner experts to provide personalized assistance, guidance, and technical support. With deep-rooted expertise and expanded geographical reach, our support team is empowering our partners to redefine excellence in delivering unparalleled cybersecurity training and services. Together, we will continue the legacy of providing rigorous, real-world cybersecurity training that prepares enterprises for ever-evolving threats.

Portal Enhancements and New Tiered Rewards Program

Our modernized Partner Portal now includes a sales and marketing hub with PRM tools, and a partner locator tool, which enables potential customers to find and connect with partners based on their specific needs and location. Partners have access to on-demand sales training through the portal, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to effectively promote and sell OffSec’s solutions. In addition, partners can customize, co-brand, and deploy ready-made marketing assets through our marketing suite. 

To support our partners’ marketing activities and initiatives, we’re introducing Market Development Funds (MDF). Partner organizations can access these funds by meeting a combination of revenue and portal activity requirements. This unlocks the potential to use funds for a variety of different co-marketing activities. 

Through the new tiered rewards program, partner organizations can access additional benefits for driving revenue or completing key sales enablement and marketing activities in the Partner Portal.

The OffSec Partner Experience

The OffSec Global Partner Program augments an organization’s dedication to equipping learners with the indispensable knowledge and mindset essential for excelling in cybersecurity. We help partners cultivate a highly qualified workforce, thereby addressing the critical demands of both the private and public sectors.

These two case studies demonstrate the effectiveness of partnering with us, from maximizing revenue, to addressing the global cybersecurity workforce shortage:
