The purpose of the Utimaco Partner Program is to help our partners grow. To build partner business, we:
The Utimaco Partner Program has three main benefits for partners. It aims to generate growth, it is designed to be easy to apply for and participate in, and it enables partners to be competent and visible in the market with regards to Utimaco products and services.
The three main building blocks of the Utimaco Partner Program are growth, simplicity and enablement.
Our business model is simple: we do not compete with our partners for business. We are committed to your success.
To secure the growth of our business, we aim to increase the availability and visibility of our products and services in terms of regional coverage and use in different applications and verticals. As a consequence, we will refer end-customers to the appropriate partner according to the partner’s regional scope and competencies, based on the end-customers’ requirements. We support our partners by co-visiting end-customers.
The HSM market is growing. Both for us and our partners it is important to gain or intensify market access and have attractive offerings for evolving market segments. We can align our views on growth opportunities, and how to address them, to facilitate mutual growth. We support partners by working together on pilots to address and evaluate new potential opportunities.
Utimaco is investing in an extension of our product portfolio:
In order to be as simple, and as impactful, as possible, one important building block of the Utimaco Partner Program is our pricing scheme.
Products: Our approach to pricing is simple: we sell Hardware Security Modules by the unit. Pricing depends on performance and security level. Every product comes with standard APIs and all standard cryptographic algorithms, including ECC / ECDSA. There are no business-enforced limitations on the number of keys, slots, server connections or applications that can be run or extracted from one of our products – up to performance limits – and there are no license costs for the use of our firmware modules.
Services: Maintenance can be bought per unit, for each HSM. This gives you access to support, bug fixes, security advisories, new releases, including new features and new cryptographic mechanisms as well as hardware repair.
There are no complicated license agreements, no pay per slot or key models and no hidden small print that apply to the HSM. Giving quotations to end-customers is easy for partners. Total cost of ownership is one of the main benefits for end-customers (and partners) when working with Utimaco.
