Forcepoint’s channel momentum is gaining steam! In the last three months alone Forcepoint has been recognized by CRN on their 20 Coolest Cloud Security Vendors of the 2018 Cloud 100 and 2017 Products of the Year for Forcepoint CASB. And, today I am honored and humbled to have been named to the prestigious list of CRN 2018 Channel Chiefs, an award I could not accept without acknowledging our global partner community and the support they add to the Forcepoint organization.
It is truly incredible to witness and experience the momentum that we as an organization have leading into 2018. And, as we dive into the new year, I look forward to building on this momentum to strengthen our partnerships and strategically integrate further with the global partner community to drive collective success for many years to come.
The 2018 Forcepoint opportunity through its intelligent Human Point System portfolio of capabilities is an exciting one for our channel community.
Forcepoint is driving an inflection point in the cybersecurity industry. The approach the industry has taken to date simply isn’t working any longer. It was built for a different time, a different and more tightly held IT environment, and a different threat landscape. At Forcepoint, we are reinventing security with our human-centric approach, by delivering uncompromising systems that understand people’s behavior and motivations as they interact with data and IP everywhere. Instead of focusing on stopping threats, a never-ending battle, we are shifting the focus to the end user by enabling risk adaptive protection that dynamically applies enforcement policies to activity and alerts representing the highest risk to an enterprise or government organization. With risk adaptive protection, cybersecurity programs, processes and technology can be uniquely applied to the individual, not just to broad groups of users within the organization, thereby lowering overall risk, accelerating business transformation and reducing cost.
So, what does our vision for human-centric security mean for our trusted partners and customers moving forward? In short, I believe that Forcepoint is the company to partner with in cybersecurity – our Human Point System is second to none in protecting our customers and potential customer’s needs. Forcepoint today is the only company bringing together “start anywhere” integrated cybersecurity capabilities encompassing Data Loss Prevention, UEBA, CASB, Web/Email Security and Network Security that enables our partners to offer a differentiated and high-growth security product line, even within a partner’s extensive technology portfolio.
And that’s just the beginning – as 2018 will bring many more dynamic sell-in opportunities for our global partner community. For those partners attending our upcoming North America Partner Conference later this month I look forward to sharing with you further what lies ahead and how Forcepoint is transforming cybersecurity to deliver your business a once-in-a-generation opportunity to grow in 2018 and beyond.
