SVP, Worldwide Channels, Partner Sales
Channel management veteran Sykora joined Proofpoint at the end of 2020 as the fast-growing email security vendor’s first ever global channel chief. Sykora moved to Proofpoint from security vendor Bitdefender, where he was global sales leader and channel chief until last September.
Sykora had worked at Bitdefender since December 2017. Before that he served more than seven years at Fortinet where he was responsible for inside sales teams, distribution teams, reseller engagements and enhanced technology groups in the Americas.
Proofpoint says that a large number of partners are looking to join the Proofpoint Partner Program: The company attributes that interest to the growing number of customer searches for solution providers who can help them address their people-centric security issues.
