MDF Program Overview The SafeNet Market Development Funds (MDF) Program exists to help our Channel Partners grow their SafeNet business by driving mutually beneficial marketing campaigns and sales initiatives that generate increased demand and drive new revenue growth. Types of Funding Available

Contact Us

Application Process

To apply for SafeNet funding, please visit the Fund Management section on the SafeNet Partner Portal: https://cipherportal.safenet-inc.com

There are 2 types of MDF funds available for SafeNet partners: • Discretionary Funds (they are not accrued or earned) are available for eligible Platinum, Gold or Silver partners to request, to actively market SafeNet solutions to develop new, revenue-generating opportunities and promote the SafeNet brand. SafeNet will contribute up to 50% of the activity cost (subject to approvals as outlined in this document). Partners can submit MDF requests in the Fund Management module on the new SafeNet Cipher Partner Portal. • Accrued Funds are available to a small number of Distributor accounts that are driving significant incremental revenue for SafeNet. These are evaluated on an annual basis, and any new Distributors are invited into the program once per year. These are managed on a region-by-region basis, and all distributors taking part must sign an additional agreement. Access and approval to the funding is handled in the same way as the discretionary funds. Distributors should select their respective fund when submitting a MDF request through the new SafeNet Cipher Partner Portal. Funding requests will be evaluated on an individual, case-by-case basis evaluated on the relevancy of the proposed initiative, the amount of funding requested, and the expected results. Programs must be focused on driving or incentivizing new business and be clearly measurable.

You must be approved and have a portal login in order to request funds. You need to submit a funding request for each newly proposed program with SafeNet. Once submitted with all the relevant information required, the portal will route your request to your local Field Marketing Manager to approve. If more information is needed or the application is declined, you will receive an email alert. You will also be able to see the status by logging into the Fund Management section on the portal.

Funding Request Requirements • Partner must include an integrated marketing and sales plan for eligible marketing programs (see partial list of examples below) • Program needs to generate measurable opportunities and awareness for SafeNet solutions • Partner needs to contribute monetarily, as well as with time and resources, to the success of the program

Eligible MDF Programs • Webcasts (both live and on-demand) that educate prospects about SafeNet solutions or security industry concerns • Seminars, trade shows and other events that promote SafeNet solutions • Direct mail/e-mail campaigns for specific SafeNet lead generation • Sales incentive (SPIF) programs, combining sales and product training with creative, motivating incentives to ensure success in selling SafeNet solutions • Newsletter (print or e-mail) that educates clients and prospects about SafeNet solutions • Telemarketing/appointment setting campaigns • Other creative marketing programs SafeNet Cipher Partner Program Americas Reseller Overview Guide
