The Internet of Things (IoT) is fundamentally changing business productivity, but also introducing remarkable risk. At ForeScout, we remain committed to supporting our channel partners and helping their customers realize the importance of IoT security. Since the inception of our channel program in 2005, we’ve made tremendous advancements in our partner programs and relationships. That’s why I’m excited to announce that our very own Stacey Black, Senior Manager of Channel Planning & Operations, has been named as one of CRN’s 100 People You Don’t Know But Should for 2016.
Working Better Together
ForeScout is dedicated to continued success of our channel program. We invest in strategic relationships with leading technology alliance partners to maintain a consistent top-line value proposition. Together, our goal is to offer solutions that will help further enhance the network security and compliance needs of our customers. These efforts have not gone unnoticed and as a result, we’re proud that our global channel program continues to successfully support our channel partners. Highlights include:
- Executive Appointments: We’ve increased our presence in APAC with the appointment of DQ Li, Vice President of Sales in Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) in May. I also came on board in July to expand our global footprint and continue to strengthen our channel.
- Partner Momentum: Nationally, we announced two partnerships, one with Fishtech Labs, in August that will help us manage and secure IoT environments.
IoT Security: From the Inside Out
Now more than ever, it’s important to encourage healthy Internet of Things security practices from the inside out. This starts with re-evaluating current security technologies and practices, and helping companies easily and continuously discover and track IoT devices as soon as they connect to the network. Working through our channel partners and their respective end users, we remain committed to educating companies on the reality of IoT security in the enterprise – and why it’s critical that IoT devices are deployed and managed in a secure environment.
ForeScout is unique in that we can help make the invisible visible. As IoT continues to grow and play a bigger role within the enterprise, ForeScout is well positioned to enable businesses and government agencies to see, control and secure traditional and IoT devices, the instant they connect to the network. I’m thrilled to be heading our channel team, working alongside great minds, like Stacey Black, to improve IoT security for our channel partners and their customers
