Partner Newsletter - Issue 6

Jeff Barto


What A Year!

In 2018 alone, Partners like you helped DigiCert accomplish many key milestones, including the completed rollout of our DigiCert Certified Partner Program, the integration of Website Security into DigiCert, the successful replacement of certificates issued under our Symantec certificate infrastructure(s), the first products in our new flagship Secure Site family of certificates under the DigiCert brand, and the launch of our exclusive PartnerPRO marketing program.

Such favors and loyalty are best returned.

As we continue to build upon our sole role as the global leader in digital certificates, we're looking forward to a busy 2019 and building more ways for you to profit and succeed. This includes new Secure Site and branded products, beyond-certificate offerings, increased portal and API functionality, and more marketing and enablement aids.

In this last newsletter of 2018, we're in a giving mood so please take time now to ensure you're logged into our portal, receiving our emails, subscribing to our webinars, and following our blog. The links for all of those actions are below, and they'll become more and more valuable as we continually deepen our ongoing trend of openness and transparency.

Onward and upward!


The 4 C's of Going PRO

We're continually packing more value -and more content- into our PartnerPRO program, focusing on "the four C's":

  • Content
  • Campaigns
  • Communications
  • Continuous improvement

While 3 of those C's are easy to observe, you might wonder about continuous improvement. It's the sweeping impetus which keeps PartnerPRO fresh our desire to keep you enabled and profitable, by in turn improving our value to you. And the best way to observe that is by catching our monthly recap and preview of the program. The December version is available as an MP4 via your DigiCert Partner Marketing Portal account.

If you haven't activated your DigiCert Partner Marketing Portal account, it's easy to get started: either register online, email us, or contact your Account Manager.
