Lumeta Appoints Veteran Security Executive Paul Kriksciun as Director of Channels, North America

October 17, 2017 1:08 pm

Lumeta Corporation, the authority on providing cyber situational awareness for rapid security response, today announced that Paul Kriksciun has joined the company as Director of Channels. Kriksciun joins Lumeta from Carbon Black where he led the company’s East and Federal Channel Programs. At Lumeta, he will be responsible for the development, strategy and execution of programs to support the company’s renewed focus supporting customer’s security needs through the channel.

“Today’s customers are transitioning to and from the cloud, outsourcing business processes and exploring the Internet-of-Things, all of which create massive network security risks,” said Pat Donnellan, CEO of Lumeta. “Paul is a tremendous addition to the Lumeta team as we execute against our strategic vision to provide our customers with a comprehensive and cost-effective means of securing their network infrastructure. Since joining the team, Paul has already demonstrated his impact in helping further establish Lumeta as the trusted advisor companies need to keep their entire digital ecosystem safe and secure.”

Kriksciun’s keen ability to identify the best elements for a successful, mutually beneficial security partnership was instrumental in helping develop Carbon Black’s award-winning Partner Program. Prior to that, he was director of Channel Field Marketing at Extreme Networks where he successfully grew its partner business by more than 150 percent to receive “top performer” recognition.

“If you’re not committing to the channel, you’re not committing to growth. I am excited to be working with a company like Lumeta whose team is fully committed to looking for new ways to enhance its already highly successful channel program,” said Kriksciun. “From my time working with channel programs within the security industry, I understand the challenges customers face when it comes to protecting their data in today’s cyber risk landscape. I’m passionate about working closely with partners to help bring more security and IT professionals the level of cyber situational awareness only Lumeta can provide.”

Kriksciun’s appointment comes at a transformative period for the company as it looks to enhance its channel strategy to further drive company growth. The first phase of Lumeta’s updated channel plans will focus on refinement, prioritizing partnerships that offer real and immediate value-add to customers and being highly selective when it comes to working with new partners. Lumeta will then work to scale the program across the U.S., and into Canada and Europe.

Lumeta Doubles-Down on Channel-First Approach

Lumeta enables managed security service providers (MSSPs) to maximize their support and relevance to customers by eliminating blind spots in infrastructure while providing unique, real-time visibility from the endpoint to the cloud. This better protects customers from data breaches, while delivering significant and continuous profitability to MSSPs.

Its cyber situational awareness platform, Lumeta® Spectre, has the ability to discover rogue and shadow networks, endpoints or VMs in even the darkest corners of an organization’s infrastructure to provide unmatched visibility and monitoring.

“Known for our special focus on the U.S. government, Red River customers serve across some of the most highly sensitive and regulated markets – from intelligence and defense, to healthcare and commercial. Our customers not only require complete visibility into their entire digital network and security processes, but also need solutions that maximize the performance, efficiency and security of their critical infrastructure,” said Dom Agostino, partner alliance manager at Red River. “Lumeta’s cyber situational awareness platform delivers best-of-breed network visibility to empower customers across industries with the global visibility needed to keep their sensitive data protected.”

“Organizations and IT departments are under mounting pressure to implement technology strategies that drive measurable improvements throughout the organization, especially in the area of network security,” said Bob Anthony, President of Tri-Delta. “Lumeta Spectre helps us maximize the value of IT for our customers, through its ability to quantify network risk and measure the impact of network change from key business and IT initiatives.”

Lumeta works closely with value-added resellers (VARs) and channel partners to provide network situational awareness solutions to enterprises and organizations around the world, including Structured, GuidePoint, Red River, Copper River ES, ePlus.ComGuard, Forsythe, Optiv, Tri-Delta and Vector Synergy.
