Faraz’s background with RSA Security, Cisco’s Security Organization and ThreatQuotient reflects his ability to lead, understand and scale channel partner businesses within the dynamic security landscape. His prior experiences are crucial to his role at Code42 where in 2021 he is leading the company’s “channel-first” go-to-market strategy, delivering its Incydr™ data risk detection and response solution through the channel and growing strategic relationships across existing and new partners.

“As part of our ‘channel-first’ go-to-market strategy, Code42’s investments in the program signal its deep commitment to the channel as part of aggressive growth goals, and I could not be more excited to lead and advance our efforts,” said Faraz Siraj, Code42 vice president of channel sales. “Today, every company is exposed to Insider Risk as employees go about getting their work done – it happens when employees accidentally or intentionally expose, leak or mishandle data. As we expand our channel program, it is imperative that we continue to educate channel partners and their customers about the increasing importance of Insider Risk Management strategies and leveraging new approaches and technologies to mitigate insider risks in our cloud-based world of distributed workforces.”

The 2021 Channel Chiefs are prominent leaders who have influenced the IT channel with cutting-edge strategies, programs and partnerships. All honorees are selected by CRN’s editorial staff based on their dedication, industry prestige and exceptional accomplishments as channel advocates.

“CRN’s 2021 Channel Chiefs list includes the industry’s biggest channel evangelists, a group of individuals who work tirelessly on behalf of their partners and drive growth through the development of strong partner programs and innovative business strategies that help bring business-critical solutions to market,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The Channel Company is proud to recognize these channel influencers and looks forward to following their continued success.”
