SafeBreach Appoints Seasoned Security Channel Director to Accelerate Partner Initiatives; New Program Accelerates Growing Demand for Breach and Attack Simulation
SUNNYVALE, CA – August 1, 2018 – SafeBreach, the leader in Breach and Attack Simulation, today announced its Global Channel Partner Program. On the heels of a record 2017, the company also added veteran channel security executive John Bolger as head of channel sales.
SafeBreach channel initiatives to date have already achieved tremendous momentum. Partners are delivering significant value via continuous security validation of enterprise risks with Breach and Attack Simulation. Coupled with high-margin, differentiated services to prioritize and remediate issues, the SafeBreach platform is creating new opportunities for channel partners. The new global program was designed to build upon this success, and extend even greater incentives to attract, recruit and grow the channel:
Technical and sales support
SafeBreach has expanded its technical and sales product training on Breach and Attack simulation to its partners. Built on best practices learned over hundreds of customer deployments, SafeBreach partner offerings provide customized expertise and know-how needed to understand and deploy Breach and Attack Simulation to add immediate value to their customers.
This new program is based on a tiering system, where focused partners receive the most integrated enablement and competitive margins. This allows partners to work with SafeBreach at various levels of commitment, and to progress as expertise and customer interest demand it.
The addition of John Bolger as channel leader will expand worldwide sales initiatives by empowering partners with accelerated revenue opportunities in the Breach and Attack simulation sector. With nearly a decade of channel experience selling enterprise solutions, John Bolger has held leadership roles at some of the world’s most recognized enterprise cybersecurity companies, including Cylance and FireEye where he served as global director of channel sales. John was also recently recognized by CRN as a “Channel Chief.”
“SafeBreach has sparked new conversations and unique opportunities within the partner community,” said Bolger. “Our technology is a game changer, and is uniquely helping today’s enterprise anticipate attacks, identify breach scenarios and mitigate risks in advance. I’m really excited to take SafeBreach to greater heights by further enabling our current partners, recruiting new resellers that have proven track record in driving new business, and acting as true trusted advisors to our joint enterprise customers.”
Today, SafeBreach partners are committed to helping their enterprise customers stay one step ahead of attackers by enabling them to shift towards an offensive mindset with SafeBreach. By implementing the Breach and Attack Simulation platform from SafeBreach, customers get a “hacker’s view” of their enterprises’ security posture and can proactively predict attacks, validate security controls and improve security operations center (SOC) analyst response.
