Skyhigh Security has expanded its channel leadership team with former channel leaders from Nutanix and Dell Technologies.


Skyhigh Security’s Scott Goree

Scott Goree joins the Skyhigh Security channel leadership team as vice president of worldwide channels. He previously was Nutanix’s global leader of worldwide distribution and responsible for the company’s worldwide channel renewal business.

Jeff Tripp has been appointed senior director of America’s channels. He most recently led Dell’s networking business as the director of North America channel sales.

Paul Barbosa is Skyhigh Security’s chief revenue officer.

“With these appointments, we are confident we are creating a worldwide channel organization focused on enabling our partners to help customers solve the challenges associated with remote work environments, while reducing costs and simplifying data protection,” he said. “Scott brings a wealth of experience across multiple routes to market, SaaS sales and security. Combined with Jeff’s trusted relationships with leading partners in the Americas, their experience will be instrumental in solidifying our worldwide channel presence.”

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

Skyhigh Security Standards

Tripp’s strategic, collaborative approach to cybersecurity will set new standards for Skyhigh Security.

“As a market leader in the security service edge (SSE) space, Skyhigh Security is at the forefront in providing data-aware, cloud-native protection to worldwide markets, building on our commitment to data-first cybersecurity,” he said. “I’m thrilled to join Skyhigh Security at a time where more focus is on cloud security than ever before.”

In March, Symphony Technology Group (STG) completed its split of McAfee Enterprise into two organizations with the launch of Skyhigh Security. It includes the McAfee SSE portfolio.
