Lacework, a data-driven cloud security company, has announced it has hired Brian Lanigan as its new VP of Worldwide Channels and Alliances. Lanigan joins Lacework to help scale the Lacework Partner Programme so that it includes new and more diverse partners as the company continues its unparalleled global growth.
According to the vendor, crucial to this growth is a wide ecosystem of channel partners, managed service providers (MSPs), global systems integrators (GSIs), independent software vendors (ISVs) and cloud service providers (CSPs).
Prior to Lacework, Lanigan led global strategic alliances across Global Systems GSIs, MSPs, and CSPs at Splunk. Before Splunk, he focused on HP Software’s go-to-market strategy with GSI alliances, MSPs and CSPs at HP Enterprise. He has also previously served in sales roles at Peregrine Systems, Overture Services and Keylime Software.
“I strive to work with companies that have transformative technology, leadership with a clear vision for building sustained growth over time and the experience to turn that vision into reality. Lacework embodies these attributes more than any company I have ever seen,” said Lanigan. “Lacework has already upended the cloud security market and provided tremendous benefit to customers in the process. I’m excited to amplify that success by cultivating a robust partner ecosystem to bring the Polygraph Data Platform to businesses all over the world.”
Andy Byron, President and Chief Revenue Officer, Lacework, said: “Brian has deep relationships across the partner community and knows how to build, scale and support a global channel and alliances organisation. We’re thrilled to have him join Lacework to build on the foundations of our rich partner ecosystem and help us change the security industry forever.”
Jon Jensen, VP Cybersecurity, Presidio, said: “Lacework continues to attract top industry talent to execute against its strategy to help customers innovate with speed and confidence, and we’re thrilled to welcome Brian to his new role at Lacework. Brian has a track record of building partner ecosystems and programmes to enable organisations like Presidio to meet the rapidly evolving demands of our customers to secure technology transformation.”
With an initial focus on building a deep understanding of the current partner ecosystem at Lacework, Lanigan will quickly pivot to scaling the partner programme globally.Click below to share this article
