August is off to a great start for Palo Alto Networks as our CEO Mark McLaughlin has been named to CRN’s Top 100 executives list. Published annually, CRN’s Top 100 executives list honors executives from companies that are leveraging the channel most effectively -- leaders who play an integral role in shaping the industry, whether by driving huge cultural shifts or forging innovative new routes to success.
Executives named to the list are recognized in one of four categories: Most Influential, Top Innovators, Top Disruptors and Sales Leaders. Mark was included in the Most Influential list, where he was praised for having Palo Alto Networks “firing on all cylinders and delivering more and more security functionality across its platform, including stellar growth for its Traps endpoint product. And Palo Alto Networks NextWave partner program has many partners shifting their business away from legacy vendors.”
Together with our partners, we are transforming the security market from detection to prevention. Since day one, Palo Alto Networks has been a channel-centric company and our channel mission has never been clearer -- to build an ecosystem of next-generation security innovators, with coverage, capacity and capabilities to elevate our leadership position in the enterprise security market.
