Proficio Enhances Synergy Partner Program to Meet Demand for Managed Security Services

Lee Sher joins the team as Senior Director of Channel Sales

CARLSBAD, Calif. – February 10, 2017 – Proficio, one of the fastest growing managed security service providers (MSSPs) delivering managed detection and response (MDR), has strengthened its Synergy Partner Program. The enhanced program provides partners with increased recurring margins and robust sales, technical and marketing support. Industry veteran, Lee Sher, has joined Proficio as senior director of channel sales to further drive the company’s partner programs.

Proficio’s ProSOC service affords medium- to large-enterprises the most advanced managed security technology and around-the-clock monitoring deployed as a cloud-based service. Backed by experienced regional sales and technical teams, the Synergy Partner Program provides multiple relationship opportunities that are aligned with partners’ business models.  Proficio’s Synergy Partners benefit from recurring revenues, collaborative sales engagement, deal registration, co-marketing support and training programs.

“In recent years, we’ve seen more organizations expressing deep concerns over security and compliance than at any other point in our company’s history,” said Steve Stumpfl, vice president of sales at Tevora, a management consulting company focused on information security. “Proficio’s unique blend of 24×7 expert security monitoring, affordable service, next-generation technology platform, and easy-access to training makes them an ideal partner in our catalogue of MSSPs, better enabling our customers to make informed, future-facing decisions.”

In addition to the program enhancements, Proficio made a strategic hire with the appointment of Lee Sher, who has over 20 years of proven leadership experience in partner sales with companies like Check Point, Fortinet, Imperva, Solutionary/NTT and Bay Dynamics. As vice president of channel sales at Solutionary/NTT Security, Sher grew and managed an industry-leading channel program that resulted in significant overall company revenue growth. At Proficio, Sher will use this experience to oversee channel sales policies, objectives and programs, and maximize customer and partner success.

The expansion of Proficio’s Synergy Partner Program was made possible by a $12 million funding round led by Kayne Capital. The funding has also supported international expansion in both Asia-Pacific and European markets, in addition to expanding marketing investments with the hiring of Dustin Ritter as Chief Marketing Officer (CMO).

“Channel partnerships are a key part of our growth strategy and our goal is to make Proficio’s Synergy Partner Program the most partner-friendly model in the MSSP industry,” said John Humphreys, senior vice president of business development and alliances at Proficio. “Our channel partners can provide more value to their end user customers and address new cybersecurity challenges better with Proficio’s ProSOC managed security services.”
