Avira Announces North America Channel Program; Offers Award-Winning Antivirus to Partners for Less Than $1 Per Month and $0 Maintenance Charges

Burlingame, USA  --- October 15, 2013 – Security expert Avira announced today the official launch of its North America Channel Program. Among other features, the Program features a low, fixed cost on Avira’s most popular antivirus software that lets channel partners offer award-winning security for less than $1 per month.

With more than 100 million customers worldwide and a reputation for trouble-free software and the highest detection rates in the industry, Avira is one of the most successful antivirus software companies for resellers to partner with. Avira’s new Channel Program was designed exclusively for North American resellers with simple enrollment, no maintenance costs, and uncomplicated partner levels.

“We started with a blank slate and created an innovative program from the ground up to be partner-friendly and partner-profitable,” said Lance Jacobs, North America’s General Manager for Avira. “Our partners enjoy the full program benefits, immediate access to the products and tools, and excellent margins from the moment they sign up.  There are no delays, no training hurdles, and no complications. We’re successful only if you are successful.”

Avira’s channel program features two simple levels with maximum benefits:

  • Smart Partner – highlights include attractive ‘smart margins,’ 24/7 technical support, evaluation licenses, access to PartnerNet and Partner Academy, free online trainings, generous payment terms, a partner listing on the Avira website (tens of millions of unique visitors monthly), etc.
  • Uber Partner – highlights include all of the above, plus designated account manager, dedicated front-of-the-line technical support number, free NFR product, evaluation licenses, assignment of leads, generous credit limits, etc.

Both partnership levels also feature zero charges for software maintenance and updates (an industry first!), access to Avira’s members-only PartnerNet website portal and Partner Academy training, and a $10 per user per year fixed cost on Avira’s most popular antivirus product, Avira Professional Security, which gives all channel partners unlimited freedom to maximize their sales.
