DivvyCloud also announced Pete Jones has joined the company's leadership team as Director of Strategic Partnerships. In this role, Jones has overseen the successful launch of DivvyCloud's channel partner program and will guide strategic initiatives to accelerate growth for DivvyCloud, its partners, and our mutual customers. Jones comes to DivvyCloud with extensive channel experience, including two record-setting years as the global director of channel and business operations with Hapara and two years of delivering best in class IT advisory services with Gartner.
"I'm thrilled to be a part of the DivvyCloud team and look forward to deepening our existing partnerships and developing new ones," said Jones. "DivvyCloud is growing rapidly, and part of the growth strategy is focused on recruiting a select group of partners that are best-in-class when it comes to enabling digital transformation with automated cloud security. My goal is to help these partners unlock a new perpetual revenue stream through the resale of DivvyCloud and professional service opportunities to help configure and extend our software. There is an enormous market demand for our solution and we are looking for partners who can help us maximize it."
The channel partner program will help DivvyCloud meet the incredible demand it is experiencing both in North America and internationally. DivvyCloud's goal is to use the channel partner program to empower more enterprises to build next generation applications using cloud and container services, and migrate workloads, including regulated ones, to the cloud. Partners will be able to leverage DivvyCloud to protect the cloud and container environments of customers from misconfigurations, policy violations, threats, and IAM challenges. With automated, real-time remediation these customers will achieve continuous security and compliance, and can fully realize the benefits of cloud and container technology.
"The cybersecurity market is saturated with a myriad of security vendors and many businesses trust channel partners for recommendations on solutions that will meet their expectations and needs," said Brian Johnson, CEO of DivvyCloud. "Our goal is to build relationships with key partners that are not only widely respected and trusted, but that also have demonstrated a keen understanding of the importance of cloud security as a key component of digital transformation strategy, and are poised to help companies scale their cloud and container strategies responsibly and securely."
