At Quest, partners are crucial to the achievement and growth of our business. We invest in the success of our partners, and would like to thank all of our hard-working partners across the globe for their outstanding commitment to and hard work for the programme and customers over the past year.

It is with great pleasure that we announce that, as a result of our vital partnerships, the partner programmes by Quest, One Identity and erwin by Quest, have all received a five-star rank by CRN, a brand of The Channel Company. The CRN Partner Program Guide is an annual list of the most distinguished partner programmes from leading technology companies that provide products and services in the IT channel. The five-star rating is awarded to an exclusive group of companies that go above and beyond in their partner programmes.

“As innovation continues to fuel the speed and intricacy of technology, solution providers need partners that can keep up and support their developing business,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s 2021 Partner Program Guide gives insight into the strengths of each organisation’s programme to recognise those that continually support and push positive change inside the IT channel.”

The Quest and One Identity Partner Circle Programs are structured to enable partners across the portfolio to achieve greater rewards and business growth. The programme's simple yet flexible multi-level approach gives partners the resources and skills they need to conduct business in today’s highly competitive and ever-evolving marketplace.

Through the recent acquisition of erwin, Quest is further extending its partner programme to help customers mitigate risk while maximising data’s upsides for peak performance. Over the last year, erwin by Quest has increased its resources and adjusted its partner strategy to help partners realise the exceptional business benefits of data. As erwin by Quest is fully integrated into the Quest Partner Circle Program in 2021, the programme looks to give partners across the entire Quest ecosystem the opportunity to take advantage of new resources that help partners expand into new and developing markets.

“Over the past year, we’ve deepened our relationships with key channel partners across all of our business units to ensure mutual success,” said Todd Werner, Vice-President and Global Channel Lead at Quest. “It’s an honour to have three of our channel programmes within Quest achieve the five-star ranking as it demonstrates our company-wide dedication to our partners.”

In 2020, Quest partner programmes have homed in on virtual enablement activities and improved self-service content to create a more experiential approach for partners. Strategic acquisitions of Binary Tree, Quadrotech and erwin have created a robust programme for partners to extend their skills and grow their business.

The five-star rankings on CRN’s 2021 Partner Program Guide come alongside our acknowledgment on CRN’s 2020 Emerging Vendors list and key channel team members being named CRN’s 2021 Channel Chiefs. These recognitions and awards across the Quest ecosystem demonstrate our commitment to our outstanding partners and customers.
