A program tailored for you

McAfee solution providers are reseller partners with one or more areas of expertise in McAfee-based solutions. As a solution provider, you can tailor the program to your interests and business needs. For example, you might take a sales approach or a technical go-to-market approach, with technology support, implementation, and/or services as a focus. As you invest more in the relationship through training and certification, you reap greater rewards and increased commitment from McAfee.
