Partner ProgramCompliance

Find out more about our compliance milestones and how they affect your partner tier.

The Sophos Partner Program defines clear and transparent rules of engagement. Global partner tiers provide clarity on exactly what is expected as well as what is available at each tier. As a Sophos partner, you have access to resources available to help you expand your technical and sales expertise and ensure customer success.

Climbing the Sophos partner program ladder – that is, reaching a higher tier – will bring you more rewards and higher margins.

In this blog, we will cover important partner program compliance milestones and how they will impact partner tiers.

March 31, 2022: Partner program compliance deadline

The compliance deadline is approaching fast: On March 31, 2022, we will record certification and revenue numbers to perform our yearly partner program compliance audit. Make sure you meet all partner program requirements by this deadline, so you can make the most of partner program benefits and secure your margins for the following year.
