Identity services vendor ForgeRock is looking for new partners through a new channel programme, and with a new channel leader.
To lead the expanded programme, ForgeRock has hired Chris Westfall as vice president of global partner strategy, programmes and operations, who brings expertise from over 20 years of partner ecosystem leadership from across the software industry.
ForgeRock offers enterprise-grade solutions in one platform and serves all identities, including workforce, consumer, things and devices.
The new ForgeRock Partner Program meets the needs of the company’s growing partner ecosystem, with a special focus on system integrators. The programme will allow ForgeRock’s partners to evolve and expand their identity capabilities into areas like governance and “passwordless”.
“We’re investing in our partner ecosystem more than ever with the expansion of our new partner programme to offer shared resources and playbooks, and help ensure our joint customers achieve their digital transformation goals successfully,” said Fran Rosch, CEO of ForgeRock.
“Powerful identity solutions are at the heart of every successful digital transformation, and we’re deepening our partner relationships to deliver innovative identity solutions that support our mutual customers.”
Partners will have access to demo environments, roadmap previews, sales enablement resources, RFP support, and marketing campaigns that help partners find new business opportunities in all regions around the world. Partners will also have access to “generous” sales incentives and funding for training and professional services support.
“We’re scaling the programme to greater heights by delivering even better results and increasing our investments,” added Westfall. “The shared commitment we have with our partners is to deliver remarkable growth and successful customer experiences, and this new programme is purpose-built to support those goals.”
Westfall has joined from Paylocity, where he served as vice president for head of channels and alliances.
