Remediant’s New Channel Leader to Build Its First Partner Program

Privileged Access Security

Remediant, a provider of privileged access management (PAM) software, has appointed Bryan Copeland, previously with VeriStor Systems and Trend Micro, as its new global head of channels.

In this new role, Copeland will oversee the growth and development of the company’s first channel program. The program will help VARs, distributors, MSSPs and SIs provide their customers with SecureOne, Remediant’s PAM solution, the company said.

Copeland has more than 10 years of experience managing channel partner relationships with IT and security firms. Most recently, he was VeriStor‘s security practice manager and built the company’s security practice from the ground up, growing the company to $25 million in revenue in four years, while expanding the partner portfolio to include 60 channel partners during that time.

Prior to that, he spent five years developing and expanding partner programs at Trend Micro as a strategic partner manager covering more than half of the United States.

Remediant is actively signing up new channel partners and is developing a partner portal.

“Bryan truly understands the anatomy of a channel partner, which is critical to our success,” said Oscar Flores, president and CEO of Adsevero, a Remediant channel partner. “SecureOne provides a revolutionary PAM solution to help our customers deal with the biggest security headache today — credential theft attacks. This innovative technology is a massive game changer for the PAM market.”

In a Q&A with Channel Partners, Copeland talks about what partners can expect from Remediant in the coming months.

Channel Partners: Why did you want to join Remediant in this role?

Bryan Copeland: I joined Remediant for several reasons, but the most significant reason is because I believe in SecureOne. It’s truly a game-changing technology in the PAM security segment where the legacy technologies and vendors have been stagnant for several decades. Remediant is also a very healthy business that has been cash-flow positive since day one, which is very unique for a startup company these days. Remediant also has a great leadership team whose vision acknowledged from early stages that the channel could be the force multiplier to take Remediant to great heights.
