Netsurion, a leading managed security service provider (MSSP), today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, named Guy Cunningham, its Senior VP for Channel Sales and Alliances, to the 2021 list of Channel Chiefs. The prestigious CRN Channel Chiefs list, released annually, recognizes top leaders who drive the channel agenda and evangelize the importance of channel partnerships.

Cunningham’s career in the channel has been focused on building strong sustainable businesses in partnership with solution providers servicing both enterprise and mid-market customers. He is responsible for Netsurion’s Channel Partner Program, which has grown over 100% in the last year.

Netsurion powers the cybersecurity solutions of its partners with Managed Threat Protection, which couples Netsurion’s own holistic threat protection platform, EventTracker, with comprehensive managed security services via its 24/7 ISO-certified security operations center (SOC). In addition, Netsurion provides Secure Edge Networking, a complete managed network security solution architected to solve security, agility, resilience, and compliance needs at the branch locations of multi-location enterprises.

“Being part of the 2021 Channel Chief list is an honor, and a great reflection of success and efforts from the Netsurion team,” said Cunningham. “We’re both thrilled and grateful to be a trusted partner to MSPs and MSSPs as they bring security to their customers in an increasingly digital world. 2020 was a testament to the rapidly changing security landscape, and we look forward to continuing to support our partners with comprehensive and flexible solutions that meet their customers’ needs. Netsurion aims to drive further growth for our partners in the year ahead, working closely with them to deliver managed threat protection that is powerful, practical, and cost-effective.”

The 2021 Channel Chiefs are prominent leaders who have influenced the IT channel with cutting-edge strategies, programs and partnerships. All honorees are selected by CRN’s editorial staff based on their dedication, industry prestige and exceptional accomplishments as channel advocates.

“CRN’s 2021 Channel Chiefs list includes the industry’s biggest channel evangelists, a group of individuals who work tirelessly on behalf of their partners and drive growth through the development of strong partner programs and innovative business strategies that help bring business-critical solutions to market,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The Channel Company is proud to recognize these channel influencers and looks forward to following their continued success.”

CRN’s 2021 Channel Chiefs list will be featured in the February 2021 issue of CRN magazine and online at www.CRN.com/ChannelChiefs.
