The leaders recognized are from all areas of the IT channel ecosystem;
representing technology suppliers, distributors, solution providers, and
other IT organizations. CRN editors choose from a multitude of channel
leadership applicants and select the final honorees based on their
professional accomplishments, demonstrated expertise, and ongoing

of the overall list, honors women whose leadership and vision are key
drivers of their companies’ success and have had significant influence
to move the entire IT channel forward.

This is Crandall’s tenth recognition from CRN as a “Women of the
Channel” and ninth time as a Power 100 member. Crandall has over
25 years of experience in building emerging technology markets in
security, networking and storage industries. As chief deception

evangelizes the company’s channel program, partner profitability,
integration partner and joint lead generation programs. Crandall is
currently focused on educating organizations and their supporting
partners on how to build deception-based threat detection programs,
which are designed to reduce cyber risk as attacks get more
sophisticated and attack surfaces change to incorporate cloud, IoT, and
new interconnected technologies. She is an active speaker, blogger, and
byline contributor with a focus on cybersecurity innovation and
information technology challenges.

As director of technology marketing and channels, Kuly is responsible
for the alignment, planning and execution of the company’s global
channel and technology partner marketing. In her role, she oversees all

efforts have driven increased market demand and accelerated the
