“The synergies we’re creating with our sales team and then supporting our partners with closing deals has been tremendous,” he said. “We’ve also seen a very strong focus on recruitment of key focus partners. We’ve been really focused on growing business with security-focused partners, so partners like Set Solutions, Defy Security and Guidepoint Security, as well as national partners that everyone recognizes, such as CDW Insight and SHI, who we’ve been working with for quite some time. But really the engagement that we’ve seen from them since we’ve gone partner-first has grown exponentially, which has been great.”
There have also been positive developments from a pipeline standpoint of teaming with partners and helping them grow their businesses while Secureworks also grows, Bell said.
Secureworks will roll out its partner-first strategy in additional regions this year, he said.
“There’s not necessarily a set timeline,” Bell said. “But … we will continue to roll out regions throughout 2023 as we onboard the right key strategic focus partners in each region.”
Last month, Secureworks confirmed layoffs impacting 9% of its workforce — more than 200 employees. CEO Wendy Thomas said the company is shifting to a “smaller, more focused team.”
