Photo gallery: F5 celebrates office renovation and new channel opportunities

02 May 17

F5 Networks celebrated the renovation of their North Sydney office with networking drinks for channel partners and distributors last week as the vendor reinvigorates its channel offerings.

Rodney Thorne, F5 Networks regional sales manager – ANZ commercial and partners, says the acceleration of app workloads into a hybrid cloud architecture, and the need to secure both the provider and user of those apps, represents significant opportunities for channel partners.

“At F5, we have launched new capabilities which make us an attractive additional vendor to a pool of cloud or security channel partners who traditionally would not have considered working with us,” Thorne says.

“We have also reinvigorated channel sales and technical enablement programs to accelerate a new partner’s time to revenue, as well as establishing our Unity Partner Program, with one simple goal of helping partners sell more and earn more on each sale.”
