Cybersecurity Companies To Know In 2023: Channel Moves In Q1
We’re taking a look at the channel-focused security vendors that have unveiled major partner program updates in the first quarter of 2023, including Palo Alto Networks and Trellix.
MixMode, a company focused on deploying self-learning AI to thwart previously unknown attacks, in mid-February announced the hiring of a cybersecurity industry veteran as its channel chief as it looks to expand efforts with partners. The company named Todd DeBell (pictured), who has been recognized numerous times on the CRN Channel Chiefs list, as its vice president of channel sales.
Most recently, DeBell had been vice president of Americas channels at ExtraHop, where he spent three years. Prior to that role, he was director of Americas alliances and channel sales at Zscaler. Earlier roles included channel leadership roles at Bugcrowd, Forescout and FireMon.
In a news release, MixMode described itself as a “channel-only company,” and said that DeBell will be tasked with “continuing to expand MixMode’s channel sales strategy.”
In March 2022, MixMode raised a $45 million Series B funding round led by growth equity investor PSG.
