Security vendor, Secure Computing, has appointed Rachel Monster as local channel account manager.
Monster was previously vendor manager at security reseller, CyberTrust. She has also worked with LAN Systems as Checkpoint business development manager.
Her first point of focus in the newly created role is to look at Secure Computing's existing channel partners, and how to develop new opportunities. Secure Computing has four Gold partners on-board but is keen to attract more, she said. The vendor was looking to have at least 10 top-tier resellers nationally.
"We're happy with our two distributors, Blue Sky Industries and itX, so the focus will be on recruiting and engaging with new reseller partners," Monster said.
The vendor will also be running lead generation exercises to develop partnerships, including seminars that being planned for later in the year.
"We've received a lot of support coming in from Secure Computing's global base, both in investments and overseas visits for the lead generation exercises," Monster said.
