NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Mar 20, 2014) - KEMP Technologies, the leading provider of application-centric load-balancers and ADCs, today announced it has been awarded a 5-Star rating in the CRN 2014 Partner Program Guide. The annual directory is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

KEMP's Partner program provides KEMP's most advanced technology resellers with sales and technical support to drive sales of LoadMaster virtual bare metal and hardware-based load balancers. In addition to training and pre- and post-sales support, KEMP also provides an extensive partner marketing program that includes webinars, case studies, training videos, whitepapers, product collateral and sales incentives. KEMP's partner program is designed to further propel the company's rapid growth, as well as help KEMP and its most successful solutions partners meet the increasing demand for KEMP's ADC (Application Delivery Controller) and load balancer products.

To determine the 2014 5-Star recipients, The Channel Company's Research team assessed each vendor's application based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.

"Solution providers have a lot of choices when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor, with the right technologies, and the right approach can make all the difference," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star rating recognizes the very best channel programs available in the market today to help solution providers determine which vendor delivers the best partner elements for their individual business goals."

"We are honored to have our partner program recognized by CRN," said Atchison Frazer, CMO of KEMP. "KEMP is devoted to developing valuable partnerships, which help us grow our international presence and the availability of our ADCs. We look forward to continuing to expand our network of channel partners to meet the demands of end customers."

The 2014 Partner Program Guide will be featured on and the 5-Star Partners listing will be highlighted in the April issue of CRN.
