"I'm thrilled to join Mike and the team to accelerate those opportunities by broadening our channel engagement strategy and closely aligning our product, sales and marketing efforts with the right partners."
Secureworks also continues to develop direct-to-market partnerships for its software and service bundles, even as it is boosting channel engagement.
