SAN MATEO, CA–(Marketwired – Feb 24, 2015) – TrapX, a global leader in deception-based cyber security defense, today announced that Mark Cashman, vice president of channels, has been named to the prestigious list of the 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs. The influential executives on this annual list represent the most powerful leaders in the IT channel who hold direct responsibility for driving growth and revenue for their organizations through their indirect channel partners. Individuals are selected for inclusion based on their track record of channel accomplishments, standing in the industry, dedication to the partner community and plans for driving future business innovation and channel growth.
The 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs have demonstrated their enduring support for the channel by consistently defending, promoting and executing effective channel partner programs and strategies.
“I’m honored to receive this award on behalf of the entire TrapX team. We are committed to providing excellence in all we do to support our channel partners,” said Cashman. “Channel partners are extremely important to us and instrumental in delivering our products to global markets. Incentives within our business model make it financially compelling for new channels to expand their product portfolio by partnering with TrapX. We’ll continue to dedicate the best resources towards ongoing professional and business development to ensure our valued partners have the tools, resources and support they need to succeed.”
“Each year, our editors carefully vet an extensive group of highly accomplished channel executives to highlight those exemplary individuals who earn the mantle of CRN Channel Chief. These executives strive to advance the success and standing of the channel community within their organizations. The 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs lead by example and serve as valuable advocates to help ensure the health and longevity of the IT channel. We applaud their accomplishments and look forward to their continued success,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company.
In 2014, Mark established the TrapX Security Global Partner Program to speed worldwide availability of the company’s products through service providers and resellers. In the last year, in partnership with Google, Cashman introduced partners to the TrapX Security Operation Center (TSOC), which is available through the Google Cloud Platform. The Operation Center enables partners to deploy entire secure TSOCs and sensors in a matter of hours as opposed to days, and at a fraction of the cost of legacy on-premises solutions. Lastly, Cashman expanded the company’s partner program to Latin America, which resulted in significant deals with the region’s top service providers, including Scitum Telmex, Kio Networks, Alestra and Netrix.
Deception-based cyber security defense enables customers to meet and defeat the threats of advanced persistent threats (APTs), zero day events and other sophisticated malware attacks. DeceptionGrid automates the deployment of a network of camouflaged malware traps that are intermingled with your real information technology resources. These traps appear identical in every way to your real IT assets. Once malware has slipped past your other cyber defense products, it starts moving laterally to find high value targets. Just one touch of DeceptionGrid by this invading malware sets off a high confidence ALERT. Real-time automation isolates the malware and delivers a comprehensive assessment directly to your security operations team (SOC). You are ready to defend and defeat the malware. Deception technology changes the rules of engagement and takes the initiative back from the attackers.
