DeviceLock, Inc., a worldwide leader in endpoint data leak prevention (DLP) software, is proud to announce that David Matthiesen, Director of Strategic Accounts – Americas, has been named a Top Midmarket IT Vendor Executive by The Channel Company.
Every year, The Channel Company's Midsize Enterprise Summit highlights the IT industry's most influential vendor executives who focus on the midmarket. The midmarket segment is one of the IT industry's fastest-growing, and its channel executives are faced with different daily challenges than their big-budget enterprise counterparts tend to have. The best midmarket vendors meet those special challenges head on, while serving the demands of senior IT leaders of midsize organizations.
Executives named to the Top Midmarket IT Vendor Executives list are nominated by peers, colleagues, customers and partners. Organizations involved with the Midsize Enterprise Summit, such as DeviceLock, have made a commitment to and investment in the midmarket - customers with 100 to 1,000 employees and/or $100 million to $1 billion in annual revenue.
“Midmarket customers across several verticals have always been quick adopters of DeviceLock security technology,” said Matthiesen in an interview with The Channel Company. “In our experience, midmarket firms are less burdened by bureaucratic onboarding processes, are the most in need of cost-effective security solutions, and are the most willing to move forward with 'best-of-breed' products than some enterprise customers, who tend to focus on disparate 'bundles' from the bigger security company names.”
Before launching DeviceLock's USA entity in 2008 and joining DeviceLock's Americas' distributer AdvancedForce in 2005, David Matthiesen was co-founder of Avatier Corp., a leading identity and access management company, where he was the top revenue producer for six years and served many other strategic management roles. For nearly 19 years, DeviceLock has been a pioneer and worldwide leader for Windows endpoint peripheral port-device security, data leak prevention, and virtual DLP software solutions.
This award comes only a few weeks after DeviceLock received two additional accommodations in September; DeviceLock® Endpoint DLP Software scoring a SC Magazine 5-Star “Recommended” rating and winning the MVP Award for DLP from Computer Technology Review.
