FT. LAUDERDALE, FL and COLUMBIA, MD – Netsurion, a provider of remotely-managed data and network security services for multi-location businesses, and its SIEM subsidiary, EventTracker, announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized Vice President of Alliances Guy Cunningham as one of 100 People You Don’t Know But Should in the IT channel for 2017.
The CRN editorial team, assessing feedback from solution providers and other industry executives, compiles this annual list to celebrate under-the-radar channel management team members from the industry’s top vendors and distributors. Those selected have worked tirelessly to create, promote, and manage programs and policies that support and advance the IT channel.
In his role, Cunningham helps resellers, managed service providers (MSPs), and distributors realize the full potential of Netsurion and EventTracker’s offerings for small to mid-size organizations. Since joining in February 2017, he has already launched EventTracker’s new partner program designed to transform MSPs into managed security service providers (MSSPs) by giving them the ability to add cybersecurity capabilities to their professional IT services portfolio without additional overhead.
He also led the initiative to offer significant enhancements to the Netsurion Partner Program for point-of-sale (POS) resellers and retail technology providers. Stand-out solution additions included advanced threat protection and 4G cellular-failover offerings, plus substantial improvement to partner enablement services.
“It is an honor to be featured on CRN’s ‘100 People You Don’t Know But Should’ list,” said Cunningham. “Netsurion and EventTracker aim to provide the channel with solutions that are not only scalable, but flexible. This allows partners to tailor our cybersecurity solutions specific to each customer’s needs. I joined the team earlier this year to help make enterprise-level security accessible to the mid-market with a unique solution set built for MSPs and for multi-location businesses. The recent channel program improvements we spearheaded have only furthered our reach in protecting sensitive company and consumer information. I am thrilled that CRN, a highly-respected industry publication, has recognized our efforts.”
“A number of unsung channel heroes work hard every day to drive innovation, profits, and successful partnerships, holding the IT ecosystem’s equilibrium steady and keeping it on a path to growth,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “They may not often share the spotlight with more high-profile channel figures, but the difference they make is irrefutable. We are pleased to shine a light on these individuals with CRN’s 2017 list of 100 People You Don’t Know But Should and to honor their essential contributions to the channel.”
The 2017 list of 100 People You Don’t Know But Should will be featured in the October issue of CRN and can be viewed online at www.crn.com/100people.
