Axonius, the cybersecurity asset management company, today announced the appointment of Mark Daggett as Vice President of Channels and Alliances in addition to the expansion of its partner program. The hire comes amid massive customer demand for the company’s Cybersecurity Asset Management Platform and a commitment to become a channel-first company.
Daggett will drive the growth of Axonius’ channel program to expand its portfolio of partners that accelerate long-term sales and revenue goals. Daggett will prioritize responding to increased demand in the United States with VAR Partners first and foremost, as well as helping to develop EMEA with Distribution and VAR Partners, and identifying and developing new strategic Alliance Partners.
“I’m thrilled to join Axonius and further help the company invest in the channel as a key part of its corporate strategy and go-to market effort,” Daggett said. “The Axonius platform provides tremendous value, and is a solution that our partner community can offer to their clients to solve numerous challenges and drive real business outcomes. As such, we understand that working together with our partner community is the most effective and important avenue to address the increasing demand we have seen in the market. Focus on the channel will help us meet this demand and continue our incredibly fast growth trajectory.”
Prior to Axonius, Daggett spent over four years at Cylance (acquired by Blackberry), which was the fastest cybersecurity company to reach $100M. During his time as a channel leader at the company, he was integral in helping relaunch Cylance’s channel program. He also took over global distribution and developed value-based programs to help generate distribution-led pipeline and revenue. Daggett has also held leadership positions at several IT organizations, including Quest Software (acquired by Dell), Govplace, and eEye Digital Security.

“As a leading security solutions integrator, Optiv is committed to helping our clients plan, build, and run holistic and successful outcome-based cybersecurity programs,” said Todd Weber, CTO, Optiv. “Getting a credible inventory of all assets, both on network and in the cloud, understanding security solution coverage gaps, and validating and enforcing security policies plays critical roles in securing the enterprise.

Over the course of 2020, Daggett will focus on refining Axonius’ partner program structure, from offering new training and enablement, incentives, and marketing and demand generation opportunities.
