“Siemplify has been working with the channel, but now is the time to fast-track the program at a global scale,” said Miguel Carrero, chief revenue officer, Siemplify.
“Bradd’s vast security experience, along with proven success in developing and implementing high-performing and fast-growing channel strategies, will help Siemplify further establish the strategic and tactical partner-focused foundations that will ultimately lead us to deliver meaningful value for partners.”

“The SOAR market is booming, with significant opportunity for Siemplify in the channel and I am excited to help in its commitment to amplify its ‘partner first’ strategy,” said Barmettler.
“Combining a market-leading SOAR platform with a value-added partner ecosystem will enhance the security operations for enterprise and MSSP customers alike.”
