Code42 appoints Ananth Appathurai as SVP of Channel and Alliance Partners
This move unlocks the synergies between Code42’s advisory and technology ecosystem partners and its channel partners to make it easier to collaborate and deliver Insider Risk Management programs and solutions that fit the specific data protection needs of customers.
“We have seen tremendous growth from our channel program over the past year. Running parallel to that growth, our advisory and technology partnerships have continued to deepen. We believe that the best experience we can provide for security teams unites these programs and enables us to deliver unparalleled value to our customers,” said Ananth Appathurai.
Today, nearly half of business leaders are concerned about the lack of visibility into the types of valuable data – IP, source code, product plans and customer information – leaving their organizations. Code42 helps organizations speed detection and response to data exposed by insiders by giving security teams streamlined access to its flagship IRM products, the Code42 Incydr product and Code42 Instructor micro-learning solution, through its broad ecosystem of channel, advisory and technology partners.
Creating strong alignment between Code42’s channel partners, who have high-growth practices with many of Code42’s technology partners, including CyberArk, LogRhythm, Okta, Palo Alto Networks, Rapid7, Splunk, Sumo Logic, Tines and others, will deliver important benefits for both buyers and partners:
- For security teams: Code42 is unifying the orchestration of all partners in its ecosystem based on security buyers’ technology stacks, preferred purchasing vendors and advisors, and level of expertise in managing insider risk. Incydr and Instructor continue to hold a valuable place in ecosystem partners’ portfolios, offering data protection solutions that integrate to cloud and email services, SOAR, SIEM, PAM and IAM platforms.
- For partners: As part of the Accelerate Partner Program, Code42 is committed to a 100% channel go-to-market strategy and is making it easier to enable sales of Incydr and Instructor through access to partner enablement, communications, marketing and incentives programs, and a solutions-led approach based on Incydr’s numerous technology integrations.
Ananth added, “Code42’s continued investments in our channel and alliance partner programs signal our commitment to the important role that channel, technology and advisory partners play in the company’s future growth. I am looking forward to leading the expanded partner program and leveraging the reach and influence of our partners to help security teams solve their data protection needs.”
