CA Inc. announced the launch of a new channel partner program, dubbed Onsite PC Protection Program 2.0.
The new channel partner program will address business-to-business Internet security needs and will be using Ingram Micro Inc. as the sole distributor for the partner platform.
The program grants partners access to diagnostic malware tools as well as performance testing tools. Cash incentives are available to partners for their sales, and the company is also offering finance and credit options to allow partners to better leverage CA's products.
CA hopes the launch will put them in a better position to compete with security giants McAfee Inc. and Symantec Corp. The original Onsite PC Protection Program launched in August 2006. The program currently has close to 5000 partners in North America.
