WESTBOROUGH, Mass. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Courion Corporation, the leader in risk-driven identity and access management (IAM), today announced it is significantly expanding its Global Alliances program around the world and adding an industry veteran to set the direction and execution.
Mike Parise has joined Courion as vice president of global alliances, responsible for developing the company’s strategy for expanding its global sales and delivery capacity by leveraging strategic integrators, resellers, VARs and MSPs.
“We’re thrilled to have Mike join what has been a very successful team as we continue to expand our partner presence worldwide,” said Christopher Zannetos, president and CEO of Courion. “As the identity and access management market continues to evolve, Courion will look to our network of partners to help bring Courion’s solutions to more customers who seek to efficiently meet their security and compliance challenges with advanced technology solutions such as access intelligence.”
