“Being part of CRN’s 2022 Channel Chief list is an honor and a great validation of success and efforts from the entire ZeroFox channel partner team,” said Costello. “As organizations expand their digital footprints while facing ever-increasing cyberattacks, our team is focused on continuously innovating and building industry-leading protection that delivers sustainable new revenue sources throughout the ZeroFox product portfolio. We are grateful to be a trusted partner to VARs, MSSPs, OEMs and technology integration partners and are committed to growing with them.”

This accolade comes nearly one year after ZeroFox relaunched the ZeroFox Global Partner Program and increased its number of channel personnel, including Brian Costello. The strategic pivot to a partner-first strategy was part of ZeroFox’s goal to drive business to and through partners and was a response to demand for solutions that allow partners to enrich their core offering while empowering them to navigate and understand the evolving external threat intelligence landscape.

“When we launched our revamped ZeroFox Global Channel Program last April, our priority was to build a partner-first program,” said James C. Foster, Founder and CEO of ZeroFox. “We are proud of the work of our channel team and ability to drive ZeroFox’s mission to build and support an ecosystem of trusted partners that can take full advantage of the rapidly accelerating global demand for external threat intelligence solutions. Our partners are valued members of the ZeroFox team, and our goal remains to drive all future business through them.”

A panel of CRN editors selected the honorees for their channel dedication, industry stature and accomplishments as channel advocates. The 2022 Channel Chiefs are influential leaders who continue to shape the IT channel with innovative strategies, programs and partnerships.

“CRN’s 2022 Channel Chiefs recognition is given exclusively to the foremost channel executives who consistently design, promote, and execute effective partner programs and strategies,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “We’re thrilled to recognize the tireless work and unwavering commitment these honorees put into fostering outstanding business innovation and building strong partner programs to drive channel engagement and success.”
