Vol 8 Industry News: SONICWALL Wins Prestigious 2022 CRN “Annual Report Card” Award for Enterprise Network Security


CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, named the SoincWall as a winner in the Enterprise Network Security category of the 2022 CRN Annual Report Card (ARC) Awards.  This was announced by SonicWall in August 2022. This award recognizes the best technology suppliers in the market for their performance in offering high levels of satisfaction to channel partners via innovative products, services, and partner programs.

“As a 100% channel company, we remain completely committed to delivering our partners and customers with the absolute best products and support to face today’s increasingly complicated security challenges,” said SonicWall President and CEO Bob VanKirk. “We’re excited to be recognized by CRN, especially knowing that they celebrate best-in-class vendors that are committed to driving partner growth and demonstrating outstanding channel performance. SonicWall is uniquely positioned to help partners, including MSSPs, evolve and help facilitate their growth.”

CRN’s ARC Awards, which have been running for 37 years, reward best-in-class suppliers committed to supporting IT channel development via technological innovation and partner strategy. Through the ARC Awards, which are widely regarded as one of the most prestigious honors in the IT industry, solution providers provide critical feedback that recognizes technology manufacturers for developing channel-friendly product offerings, strong partner programs, and long-term successful relationships with solution providers.

The Channel Company conducted an invitation-only research poll for the ARC Awards. This year’s poll assessed responses from 3,000 solution providers across North America, assessing 82 vendor partners across four criteria: product innovation, support, collaboration, and managed cloud services. Scores were assigned in 25 primary product categories in crucial technological areas for channel partner performance.

“It’s our pleasure to honor vendors that consistently deliver top-performing products and services to establish and foster successful channel partner relationships,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO, The Channel Company. “In addition to highlighting our winners, CRN’s Annual Report Card Awards provide vendors with actionable feedback and insight into their current standing with partners that can be incorporated into their channel strategies in the future.”
