Citrix was evaluated in the Cloud Computing, Security, Data Center and Virtualization categories and earned the #12 spot. Based on comprehensive research, the directory ranks the top 25 must-have vendors that VARs should consider when looking for a partner. Coverage of the 2013 Best Companies to Partner With is also featured in the November issue of CRN Magazine and Citrix showcase includes resources and videos.

CRN Research surveyed more than 1,000 unique solution providers of all types and sizes on channel vendors in four key rating categories—technology, financial, customer demand and partner relevance—with eight criteria among the categories. The survey was conducted from July to August of this year. The Best Companies to Partner With were determined by top scores in individual categories and best overall scores in the survey.

For Citrix, the recognition couldn’t be more deserving and timely considering our many new initiatives to optimize its channel programs, ensuring best practices and clear opportunities for partners to grow.

Solutions-based certifications provide partners with the breadth of skills required to plan, design, deliver and support end-to-end, holistic Citrix solutions.
