Lacework’s Faraz Siraj

Siraj has more than 25 years of industry experience. He most recently was vice president of channel sales at Code42. There, he led the company’s channel-first strategy and integration of channel programs.

Before Code42, he was president and chief advisor at FKS Channel Consulting. He also held channel leadership roles at RSA Security, ThreatQuotient, Cisco and more.

In his new position, Siraj will be integral in building and advancing Lacework’s accelerated partner-first strategy. He’ll also align Lacework’s channel team and go to market (GTM) strategy to support Lacework partners’ growth.

Here’s our list of channel people on the move in October.

“I joined Lacework for a number of reasons and it all starts with the game-changing technology that Lacework is providing for securing the cloud,” he said. “Cloud security in general is a big task and I feel that Lacework is well-positioned to address this. Another reason is that this poses a tremendous opportunity for partners as we will want to work together to help solve customer challenges and change business outcomes. The revenue opportunity is off the charts. Finally, it was the people and culture at Lacework. This really means a lot to me and I feel working together we can accomplish anything.”

Ensuring Success for Lacework Partners

Siraj plans to assess Lacework‘s go-to-market strategy as he wants to “ensure we have the ability to execute with our partners with ease.”

“I want to quickly implement the positive changes to ensure scalable success for Lacework and all of our partners,” he said.

Lacework wants to lean into its partners to provide total services, Siraj said.

“This means Lacework will train and enable our partners for cloud security assessments/consulting services (before the sale) and services delivery (after the sale),” he said. “For partners, this is a tremendous opportunity to highlight partner value and create added revenue. Additionally, I want to evaluate all aspects of our partner profitability to ensure our partners will have the right incentives as they represent Lacework technology.”

Lacework also announced the following hires:

  • Andrew Casey as chief financial officer. He most recently served as CFO of no-code digital adoption platform WalkMe and leading it through its initial public offering (IPO).

  • Meagen Eisenberg as chief marketing officer. Prior to joining Lacework, she was CMO at MongoDB and TripActions.

  • Christopher Gilbert as vice president of global technical services. He most recently was vice president of Americas field engineering at Databricks.
