Riverbed Launches New Innovative Channel Partner Program

Industry veteran Bridget Bisnette joins Riverbed to lead Global Channels and Commercial Sales

Riverbed announced the launch of Riverbed Rise, a new channel partner program that aligns with the changing IT landscape and how partners are evolving to solve their customers’ technology needs.

With the new program, Riverbed is moving away from a traditional, compliance-based program with rewards tied to certifications and revenue that needed heavy up-front and ongoing investment by partners to maintain compliance and tier status, and shifting to a new performance-based program that is designed to reward all types of partners, business models and various customer technology consumption preferences.

The changes to the Riverbed partner program are aligned to Riverbed’s new sales strategy, works more closely with partners to acquire new customers, and drive account penetration with new technologies and flexible consumption models. To support this new sales strategy, Riverbed will work with partners to focus on Riverbed’s new and existing enterprise and public sector sales accounts.

To lead these changes, Riverbed recently welcomed Bridget Bisnette as VP, Global Channels and Commercial Sales. Bisnette is responsible for global channel strategy and synchronizing Riverbed’s efforts through the channel, managing the partner program, focusing on enablement to drive partner productivity and integrating them into the commercial sales motions.
