Understanding and successfully implementing the Proofpoint portfolio

Understanding and successfully implementing the Proofpoint portfolio

With the currently launched Product Access Program, Proofpoint is pursuing the goal of strengthening its partners – and enabling them to successfully implement the Proofpoint portfolio by providing them with practical know-how. From our point of view, Proofpoint has thought of everything to achieve this goal. Most importantly, partners are given all the tools and resources they need to understand the portfolio in a differentiated way, position it effectively and market it successfully with appropriate service offerings. The programme gives partners access to products for internal use, demonstration, development and use in lab environments.

Become an active Proofpoint partner now

As a partner with an active NFR licence (with the exception of Essentials Monthly Email and Security Awareness), your company will retain your current NFR licence until it expires. However, we recommend switching to the new Proofpoint Product Access Program well in advance of the expiry date. And of course, clear message: the sooner, the better. For further details, please contact your Channel Account Manager. Please also take urgent note: If your company does not move to the new Proofpoint Product Access Program, your NFR license will expire.

You can find all the important info in the Proofpoint Program Guide

The Proofpoint Product Access Program Guide is a supplemental document to the Channel Partner Program Guide and Product Deployment Guidelines. The document introduces the Product Access Program available to registered Proofpoint partners. These partners include resellers, distributors, technology alliance members, developers, MSPs, MSSPs and strategic partners.

Here are the key information about the application scenarios and product access

Demonstration: Eligible partners are granted access to selected products in the Proofpoint Partner Portal (or Partner Central) for the sole purpose of demonstrating Proofpoint products to customers or prospects.
Development: Eligible partners have access to 90-day product trials with optional paid renewal.
Internal Use: Eligible partners receive selected products at a discounted price for the sole purpose of protecting their internal IT production environments.
Lab Environment: Specialised and MSSP partners can install select Proofpoint products in their internal lab environments at no additional cost.
