MILPITAS, Calif., April 1, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FireEye, Inc. (Nasdaq:FEYE), the leader in stopping today's advanced cyber attacks, today announced it has been awarded a 5-Star rating in the CRN 2014 Partner Program Guide. The annual directory is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
The FireEye® Fuel Partner Program opens up a high-growth market to the next-generation of resellers, partners, and advisors dedicated to securing their enterprise customers from cybersecurity threats.

In addition, Fuel partners receive access to the technical guidance, sales alignment, enablement, and the competitive financial rewards they need to become trusted advisors to their customers and end-to-end solution providers for the FireEye Threat Protection Platform.
To determine the 2014 5-Star recipients, The Channel Company's research team assessed each vendor's application based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.
"Solution providers have a lot of choices when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor, with the right technologies, and the right approach can make all the difference," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star rating recognizes the very best channel programs available in the market today to help solution providers determine which vendor delivers the best partner elements for their individual business goals."
