Code42 Incydr Delivers Evolved Data Protection for Channel Partners
Strengthens its channel-first commitment with appointment of veteran security leader Faraz Siraj as vice president of channel sales
Code42, the insider risk detection and response leader, announced that it is revamping and formalizing its channel program with a “channel-first” go-to-market strategy for the Code42 Incydr product. A data risk detection and response solution, Incydr helps organizations identify and act on the greatest indicators of insider risk to their data and mitigate exposure from data exfiltration.
As part of its move to expand its channel programs and execution, Code42 has named security veteran Faraz Siraj as its vice president of channel sales. Faraz will work to grow Code42’s channel partnerships as well as educate channel partners and their customers about the increasing importance of insider risk management strategies.
The data protection mandates of collaborative and fast-paced organizations are evolving. In line with those changes, Incydr does not focus on data classification or privileged access to determine risk, nor rely on blocking to stop file activity. Instead, Incydr protects files from exfiltration by watching all data, vectors and users, and creates consequences for data exfiltration. This upstream approach assumes positive intent, lets teams collaborate and allows security teams to focus on actual cases of risk – not normal business operations.
“Today, the security postures of many organizations are heavily focused on external threats even though insiders are involved in two-thirds of data breaches. Recent analyst predictions validate that insider threats will increase in 2021 as collaborative and remote work stay for the long term,” said Joe Payne, Code42’s president and CEO. “The time is now for security postures and budgets to shift and be more balanced between external and internal threats. Code42, with Faraz on board, is ready to lead that market shift through the power of the channel.”
Code42 is committed to ensuring its partner community is supported, engaged and armed for success. Faraz will help further define Code42’s channel-first strategy, craft channel programs, and grow relationships with existing and new partners as they incorporate Incydr into their security stacks. Faraz brings a strong security background to his role at Code42. He previously led channel businesses for RSA Security, Cisco’s Security Organization and ThreatQuotient. His experience and track record reflect his ability to understand and grow channel partner businesses within the dynamic security landscape.
“Incydr serves as a valuable addition to channel partners’ portfolios and offers a complete security solution with integrations to SOAR, SIEM, PAM and IAM platforms,” said Siraj. “Code42’s expansion of its channel program signals its commitment to the channel as well as the important role the channel will play in the company’s future growth. This is an exciting time to be with Code42.”
