Transitioning form Cisco’s CSApp to Partner Management Application (PMA) for Certification Management

We are excited about Cisco’s transition to Partner Management Application (PMA). It will allow us to provide even more data than ever before to help customers that are onboarded to ChannelXpert to further maximize their profitability. Cisco has now retired CSApp. Therefore, while we are migrating from CSApp to PMA, the certification data in ChannelXpert will not be updated from March 14 - 31, 2016. With our agile development capability, we are working quickly to migrate to PMA and should have it up and running in the next few weeks. The additional good news is that there will be no action required on your part for the transition. Should you have any questions or concerns in the interim, please contact your Account SE or Abbey.Tewari@netformx.com.

Not onboarded to ChannelXpert? If you would like to have a better transition from CSApp to leverage PMA data, contact your Account Manager or complete the form.

Netformx Discovery Powers Cisco's New Net Authenticate Assessment Service

Netformx Discovery supports Cisco Net Authenticate Assessment Service. With Netformx Discovery partners and customers can now audit and scan their networks in minutes to identify counterfeit and gray market hardware products.

The market for counterfeit IT products is a multi-billion-dollar business. A fraudulent or unlicensed product in a company’s network presents a significant risk and is not covered by Cisco warranty or Cisco SMARTnet support contracts. Unlicensed products may not have the most up-to-date software, leaving a company exposed to security risks and potentially out of compliance. This is critical to avoid, especially for government and financial organizations. Additionally the products may not perform to expected specifications.

The Cisco Net Authenticate Assessment Service uses Netformx Discovery to scan the network and proactively identify any components that are not genuine Cisco hardware products and those that were sourced from an unauthorized channel. This ensures the network’s compliance and security and that the company is getting the Cisco reliability, performance, and software support they expect.
