Secureworks has announced the appointment of Maureen Perrelli as its new Chief Channel Officer, effective Nov. 18, 2019. Perrelli will lead the company’s global channel engagement strategy, building on Secureworks’ recent success in partnering with top technology providers to bring its cloud-native software to market.
Perelli joins Secureworks from NCR Corporation where she held the position of Vice President of Global Channel Sales. Based in the Boston area, she will join the Secureworks executive team and report directly to CEO Mike Cote. “Business environments are exceedingly complex today, and companies will need more collaboration from their cloud, IT and security vendors in order to protect critical assets from cyber threats who exploit the gaps, said Cote. “As demonstrated by our recently announced partnerships with Dell and VMware, Secureworks sees tremendous opportunity for growth through channel partners, and I’m thrilled that Maureen has joined our team to lead that effort.”
Perrelli has more than 20 years of experience leading global go-to-market organizations ranging from $200M to $4B in revenue. Prior to joining NCR, she was Vice President of Worldwide Cloud Channel Sales at Oracle and a global channel sales leader at GE. “Secureworks has proven that it can partner with the best security technology companies in the world to bring meaningful SaaS innovation to the global marketplace,” said Perrelli. “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. The company recently announced that Red Cloak Threat Detection and Response will be paired with Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection to help joint customers rid their environments of advanced threats.
