Symantec EMEA channel head jumps to Zscaler

Jamie Farrelly, previously head of EMEA Channel Sales [Enterprise Security] at Symantec has jumped to rival security vendor Zscaler. He will focus on shaping Zscaler’s channel strategy to improve its understanding of customers and their route to market when rolling out digital initiatives.

“Jamie’s expertise and experience is exactly what we need to accelerate our channel growth and expand awareness around our unique Zscaler cloud security platform, both for partners who can build services around our platform to secure recurring revenue streams and customers must provide protection beyond their corporate networks as their applications and users migrate to the cloud, said Matt Piercy, vice president and general manager EMEA at Zscaler.

“Zscaler is uniquely placed in the market as the only vendor to offer a fully cloud-based security platform. I’m excited to be part of its journey to drive further channel growth and work with next generation cloud partners who can support our vision and the role we can play in supporting digital transformation,” said Jamie Farrelly.
