Asif will lead Rubrik’s global channel and partner strategy to drive continued growth and engagement with ongoing and future partners.


Rubrik’s Ghazal Asif

Asif joins the zero trust data security provider from Google. There, she was the head of channel partners in EMEA for Google customer solutions. She led channel go-to-market (GTM) strategy and execution for the region.

Prior to that role, Asif held a number of channel leadership roles at Cybereason, AppDynamics and Cisco Meraki.

High Demand for Data Security

Ransomware impacts every company in every industry, which is driving record customer demand for Rubrik’s data security solutions,” Asif said. “The company is laser focused on the ongoing success of its partner ecosystem. Ad I’m excited to build on this momentum and deliver even greater value to our partners and customers.”

Brian McCarthy is Rubrik‘s chief revenue officer.

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

“We keep investing in the success of our extensive partner strategy and Ghazal’s leadership and channel experience will continue to fuel our data security growth,” he said. “She will act as a catalyst for scaling our partner enablement and accelerating our GTM channel strategy around the world.”

Bob Olwig is WWT‘s executive vice president of global partner alliances.

“Rubrik continues to double down on its commitment to its partners, and today’s hire of Ghazal Asif underscores the focus on their partner ecosystem,” he said . “The team at World Wide has been fortunate to partner with Ghazal in former positions, and her proven channel leadership and dedication to fostering long-term partner relationships is truly impressive. We look forward to our continued partnership to help address critical ransomware and data security challenges for our customers.”
