ThreatQuotient Names Ex-Cisco Channel Boss to Lead Partner Program
Former Cisco Security channel boss Faraz Siraj has joined ThreatQuotient as channel chief for the company’s new Threat Alliance Program (TAP), according to an announcement on Tuesday.
As Director of Channels, Siraj will lead the threat intelligence platform provider’s brand-new channel initiative, in addition to expanding the company’s network of reseller partners including VARs, MSPs and managed security service providers.
“We are pleased to announce the appointment of Faraz to lead our new Threat Alliance Program,” said John Czupak, president and CEO at ThreatQuotient, in a statement. “His history of success with some of the most influential security companies over the years speaks volumes to his ability to ensure our continued growth and emergence as the threat intelligence platform leader.”
Siraj has been a C-level player in the channel business for nearly ten years, and most recently served as the head of Americas Security Channels at Cisco prior to his appointment at ThreatQuotient. He also served in several executive-level channel positions at Sourcefire, including Head of Channel Sales East and Channel Sales Manager.
“This is an exciting time to join the company and the perfect time to launch its Threat Alliance Program,” said Siraj. “I look forward to leading this initiative and ushering in a new way of partnering that will provide the alliances needed to support the phenomenal growth path the management team has established.”
Meanwhile, ThreatQuotient said its new program will remain vendor agnostic and focus on providing partners with benefits like deal registration, NRF programs and training and certification opportunities.
