AppRiver, a leading provider of email messaging and Web security solutions, today confirmed its first distributor for the BeNeLux region. DCC Nederland, a value added distributor, is to add all of AppRiver’s products to its portfolio – including SecureTide™ spam and virus protection, CipherPost Pro™ email encryption and SecureSurf™ Web protection.
AppRiver and DCC’s partnership could not come at a more influential time for the cloud industry. According to a recent Gartner survey, 72 percent of global enterprises said they are currently using or planning to use cloud solutions by 2017. 
“Expanding our product portfolio to include AppRiver’s cloud-based security and productivity solutions was a strategic move,” said Volker Ladage, co-founder and director of DCC Nederland. “The moment a partner signs up to resell AppRiver solutions, it becomes obvious the company is committed to their success. Partner tools, certifications, co-branding and 24/7 support is available. But the bottom line is that AppRiver’s solutions serve a growing client need, stimulate new business opportunities and increase profitability.”
As new cyber threats and security requirements emerge, customers throughout Europe are looking to their solution providers for guidance on how to best protect their systems.
“Our technology was designed to keep businesses productive and information secure,” explains Rocco Donnino, EVP, AppRiver. “We are happy to be offering the DCC partner community choice, enhanced functionality and greater overall value.”
Founded in 2002, AppRiver protects more than 47,000 businesses around the globe from today’s most sophisticated IT threats. The company’s cloud-based security suite includes email hosting, email security, archiving, encryption and Web protection services. SecureSurf™, one of the newest additions to the AppRiver portfolio, is a comprehensive and cost-effective solution for Web-based malware. All services come with a 30-day free trial and are backed by AppRiver’s signature Phenomenal Care™.
AppRiver redefines two-tier partner programs by making them simple; the partner can set the price, bill their customers and cancel their service any time, while AppRiver can handle supporting and troubleshooting any issues that may arise. Additionally, AppRiver understands how annual contracts can become a barrier to many partners and their customers with the fear of costly cancellation fees if the program or solution is not the best fit. That is why AppRiver offers affordable per-user, pay-as-you-go services that give partners greater flexibility and more control without hidden charges under the surface.
To further streamline its partner program, AppRiver offers its partners a management console, designed with the two tiers needed – a portal where DCC create and manage its partners, and then a separate portal where resellers create end users and manage their services. Both portals can be branded according to partners’ and resellers’ needs.
Other AppRiver Partner benefits include:
- Recurring revenue in the rapidly growing market for email hosting and security solutions;
- No set-up fees, up-front investments, certifications or minimum revenue requirements;
- Affordable per-user, pay-as-you-go services that give greater flexibility and more control without hidden charges under the surface;
- AppRiver’s Phenomenal Care™ – 24/7 support to help customers navigate smoothly through any issues that arise; and
- Access to AppRiver University – its ongoing training and professional development program, offering regular webinars to keep partners up to date on the latest services release and upgrades.
