Mar 5, 2020

Cybereason, creators of the leading Cyber Defense Platform, announced today that Ghazal Asif, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Channels and Joe O’Donnell, Vice President of the America’s Channel have been named 2020 CRN® “Channel Chiefs.” The Channel Chiefs list honors the distinguished leaders who have influenced the IT channel with cutting-edge strategies and partnerships. This is Asif’s fourth time and O’Donnell’s third time being named Channel Chiefs.

In 2019, under Asif’s and O’Donnell’s leadership, Cybereason invested heavily in its partner program by unveiling Game Changers, a new tier for its most strategic partners. Also, the company’s MSSP organization led by Gary Kevelson introduced "MDR-in-box" to enable partners to drive incremental managed security offerings. New partnerships were announced with Cerner, WWT, TrustWave, EVRY, Advens, Ignition Technology, Securelink and Datacentrix.

“We are focused on expanding strategic partner programs by offering a differentiated product portfolio to enable our partners to grow their Cybereason business. Our offering is hands down the best the cybersecurity industry has to offer and we want our partners to deepen profitability while solving the most complex security risks for our joint customers. It’s an honor to have this commitment to our partners recognized by CRN,” said Asif.

Cybereason is among the fastest growing cybersecurity companies in the world, with distribution in all major global markets. Cybereason’s customer base has increased by more than 300 percent in the past 12 months due to joint efforts with partners and the company has more than six million endpoints under protection.

“Thanks to CRN and their panel of judges for naming me a Channel Chief this year as in a broader sense this accolade indicates that our entire team is making a sizable difference in the market. Cybereason has a tremendous opportunity to continue to expand its reach and I’m looking forward to continuing to build and deliver market making profitability programs with key partners,” said O’Donnell.
