BURLINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - Feb 20, 2013) - Arbor Networks, Inc., a leading provider of network security and management solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, announced today that Bill Lipsin 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.
Since joining Arbor Networks nearly two years ago as Vice President of Partners and Alliances, Lipsin has been instrumental in expanding the company's sales by building a robust partner and alliance program. Arbor's channel strategy is twofold: maintain the leadership position the company holds in the distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) market, while simultaneously deepening Arbor's presence with enterprises who are battling DDoS attacks, advanced and insider threats, as well as the implications of BYOD practices.
"Arbor is leading the channel with new technologies to address an ever increasing threat to companies doing business online. This increased dependence on a company's network requires intelligent visibility to understand what traffic is coming into their network and the ability to quickly and accurately handle attacks and bad traffic. It also requires proper education on how to manage these much more complex threats, something we've invested a lot of time in this past year," said Bill Lipsin. "As a result, Arbor continues to be at the forefront of these issues for our partners, constantly arming them with new solutions, tools and techniques to ward off advanced threats and DDoS attacks. I am thrilled to be part of an organization that is so committed to the success of its customers and partners alike, and I'm honored to be named a Channel Chief this year."
Available through the channel, Arbor has designed solutions that specifically address the needs of enterprises, service providers, data center and cloud operators. Arbor's Pravail® solutions deliver the situational awareness and security intelligence that enterprise and government networks require to detect and mitigate internal and external threats -- protecting the network, the brand and the business. Designed for service providers and global enterprises, the Peakflow® platform is the industry's leading network-wide infrastructure security and traffic-monitoring platform delivering unparalleled DDoS protection, actionable insight into application management and traffic engineering, and a platform for managed security services.
"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."
For over ten years, Channel Chiefs have been 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 was featured in the 2/18/13 issue of CRN Magazine and featured online at www.crn.com.
