Third-party risk management provider C2 announces new partner programme

Programme offers channel partners strong revenue potential, significant growth opportunities, and industry-leading resources and tools.

C2, a leading third-party risk management (TPRM) platform provider, has launched its C2 Partner Programme to support and drive growth for its valued channel partners.

Designed to revolutionise the way C2 goes to market, the new programme will enable and incentivise partners to sell C2 as the company moves to a channel-first model. It will include the recruitment of industry-leading technology distributors, value-added resellers (VARs), global system integrators (GSIs), and managed service providers (MSPs) from across the world.

The programme will allow partners to provide a comprehensive TPRM service to their customers through a powerful, yet simple platform designed for use by all global organisations, and offers partners guaranteed margins, significant growth opportunities, protected revenue, and world-class resources and tools.

Jonathan Wood, CEO and founder of C2, comments: “We are excited to launch our channel strategy via this comprehensive partner programme. There’s huge market growth in this sector, and we believe the timing is right to move to a partner-first strategy. Among the many benefits of the programme is the ability for partners to build a managed service practice around our platform. This will allow them to deliver analysts on demand to support their customers’ TPRM requirements – a major value-add for our partners.”

C2’s partner programme has been designed to make it easy to do business. Revenue incentives include complimentary NFR software licences, spiffs, marketing funds, and guaranteed margins; enablement benefits include product demo support, training and accreditation, technical webinars ahead of product releases, and the most up-to-date collateral and sales tools; and joint marketing support, including co-branded assets and press releases. In addition, a robust partner portal and deal registration software make it easy for partners to do business with C2.

Among the first partners to join the programme are cyber security consultancy Cybovate, an accredited reseller of C2’s platform and services for the DACH region, and Resilience GRC, an independent boutique consultancy that specialises in TPRM, a C2 reseller for the UK and Middle East.

Andi Heckel, co-founder of Cybovate, comments: “We’ve been helping our clients with their TPRM for some time now, but we were missing a solution that could help them set up a customised programme quickly and efficiently. Our partnership with C2 has allowed us to fill this gap and provide our clients with a comprehensive suite of solutions. Their clear and supportive channel programme serves as a solid base for that partnership, and we look forward to working with them to provide our clients with the best risk management solution.”

Adnan Khan, Senior Consultant at Resilience GRC, adds: “We specialise in delivering risk management solutions to companies across the UK and Middle East. By partnering with C2, we’re able to expand the range of solutions we offer and allow our clients to take greater control of their TRPM. We believe C2 is a perfect fit for us, and we’re keen to see what the future holds as we continue to unlock the programme’s benefits.”
