SecureLogix Corporation announced today that Joe O’Donnell has been named one of UBM Tech Channel’s CRN 2013 Channel Chiefs. This prestigious list of the most influential leaders in the IT channel recognizes those executives directly responsible for driving channel sales and growth within their organization, while evangelizing and defending the importance of the channel throughout the entire IT Industry. O’Donnell, who is receiving this award for the third year in a row, heads up the worldwide channels organization at SecureLogix.
The highly patented SecureLogix® solutions help to secure, optimize and simplify the management of complex enterprise voice/UC networks through enterprise-wide voice network intelligence and unified policy enforcement. Available as an IP-based solution or deployed via a software-only model running on the Cisco Enterprise router family, SecureLogix solutions enable a hard-dollar ROI payback in less than 12 months by securing the enterprise from attack, fraud, data leakage, financial losses and service abuse over TDM and VoIP (SIP) enterprise phone lines, while optimizing voice service and infrastructure expenses.
The SecureLogix Secure Voice Partner Program (SVP) spearheaded by O’Donnell is made up of a select group of unified communications solutions providers globally. Channel members are taught how to create highly profitable Managed Security Services for Voice and how to make other telephony expense management service offers. The program has consistently shown the partner community market-leading gross profit margins, introduced SPIF programs to accelerate growth, and are now providing partners with quarterly health checks on their progress. These health checks include information on gross profit margin, sales cycles, SPIF payouts and other business data.
For over ten years, Channel Chiefs were selected by the CRN editorial team based on channel experience, program innovations, channel-driven revenue, and public support for the importance of IT Channel Sales.
