BURLINGTON, Mass. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Veracode, the leader in cloud-based application security testing, announced today that its Senior Director of Sales, Evan Fromberg, has been named one of UBM Tech Channel’s CRN 2013 Channel Chiefs. This prestigious list of the most influential and powerful leaders in the IT channel recognizes those executives directly responsible for driving channel sales and growth within their organization, while evangelizing and defending the importance of the channel throughout the entire IT Industry.
Veracode’s application security platform allows enterprise organizations to proactively secure their applications and protect against vulnerabilities. Each year, companies spend billions on outsourcing software development, yet very little is spent on security verification, resulting in security breaches caused by software vulnerabilities. Veracode and its authorized partners works with these companies to help them better understand and reduce the security risks associated with third-party and insecure software by analyzing and attesting to the security posture of each application in the organization’s software supply chain.
With more than a decade of experience working with channel partners, Fromberg is responsible for leading Veracode's worldwide partner program consisting of 100 channel partners. In the past year, Fromberg helped Veracode grow its partner community by 30 percent in 2012, extending its reach further across the world, including an expanded program in North America, Europe and the Middle East. These partnerships with Veracode allow solution providers to help their customers better understand security risks in applications they developed or procured more quickly and cost effectively.
For over ten years, Channel Chiefs were selected by the CRN editorial team based on channel experience, program innovations, channel-driven revenue, and public support for the importance of IT Channel Sales.
“The 2013 Channel Chiefs list recognizes vendor executives dedicated to driving channel programs in the IT marketplace,” said Kelley Damore, Senior Vice President, Editorial Director, CRN. “Our annual Channel Chiefs issue is a must-read for IT solution providers evaluating new vendors or looking to expand solution offerings. These are the people, the products and the programs that any savvy solution provider needs to know. We congratulate this year’s Channel Chiefs for their stellar record of business innovation and applaud them for their continued dedication to the partner community.”
Selected by CRN's editorial staff, the 2013 Channel Chiefs list is featured in the 2/25/13 issue of CRN Magazine and will be featured online at www.crn.com.
