This is not the SonicWall of yesteryear.
May 1, 2023
SonicWall’s Michelle Ragusa-McBain
Ragusa-McBain’s goal is to enable partners to grow and profit with the “boundless shift to cybersecurity.” SonicWall announced her appointment at this week’s Channel Partners Conference & Expo, co-located with MSP Summit.
SonicWall recently expanded its executive lineup with the appointments of Peter Burke as vice president and chief product officer, Jason Carter as chief revenue officer and Chandrodaya Prasad as executive vice president of global product management.
Ragusa-McBain previously was global partner sales leader at Cisco. There, she bridged the relationship with Cisco and MSP partners globally through leading the Cisco Provider Elevate community.
Before Cisco, she was vice president of global channel and digital strategy at JS Group.
Ragusa-McBain serves as chair emeritus of Advancing Women in Technology for CompTIA. She’s also co-founder of the Tech Worlds Half nonprofit, a longstanding member of the National Women in Technology Group and most recently serves as Florida leader for Alliance of Channel Women (ACW).
“For me, SonicWall is a 30-year industry legend in cybersecurity, one of the hottest topics right now obviously for many MSPs and MSSPs, and customers and partners around the world,” she said. “And SonicWall is sort of this amazing kind of comeback story because they had their acquisition and now they’re private again. And this is not the SonicWall of yesteryear. They have new leadership. They’re reimagining how they go to market (GTM). They have this amazing outside-in approach, which is really all about listening to partners and understanding what they want and need, and helping to adjust the product solutions and services to help them grow. And so for me, that’s really a big part of culture of any company, to have that sort of channel-first spirit, and the ability and desire to help our partners grow in such boundless opportunities. It’s just a wonderful connection and fit, and I’m really excited to be a part of that movement.”
