What are the latest trends you see emerging across the channel ?
The lack of IT resources requires organisations to outsource parts of it to channel partners . Hence it is becoming increasingly important for vendors to provide partners with access to the knowledge on how to manage their solutions end-to-end . It is also important to understand the wider technology ecosystem and how solutions from different vendors integrate with each other to ensure an easy to manage end-toend view . For instance , the Lookout security platform integrates with SIEM vendors , EPP vendors and data classification tools like Microsoft AIP or Help Systems ( Digital Guardian , Titus , Boldon James ).
What is your management philosophy ?
Empowerment , enablement , transparency and trust . Hire the best people and allow them to thrive . Listen and make sure your team has access to whatever is required to be successful .
When you look back at your career , what has been the most memorable achievement ?
Hearing feedback from partners that say we are on the right track , that we present a great opportunity and that they truly enjoy working with us and trust us , is what makes me most proud .
On-premises security tools that are deployed in isolation are no longer enough , even for on-premises workloads .
What made you think of a career in technology ?
I was always impressed by and interested in technology even though I don ’ t have an
educational background in technology . I remember we had an engineer lead a few years ago at Lookout who gave us a lesson in how to code an iOS app . It made me think about the possibilities you have when you can write software . Marc Andreessen , one of our investors , once said : ‘ Software is eating the world .’ If I had to choose again , I would probably pick software engineering as my major .
What do you think will be the hot technology talking point of 2022 ?
On-premises security tools that are deployed in isolation are no longer enough , even for on-premises workloads . To tackle the everevolving challenges of a cloud-first world , organisations need to invest in an integrated platform that can secure their data from endpoint to cloud .
What are your personal interests and where do you like to spend most of your time after work ?
I have an amazing family with my husband and two boys and my time outside of work is dedicated to them . Seeing kids grow up is one of the most rewarding things in life . They help me appreciate the little things ( like earthworms , beetles and frogs ) and bring me down to earth . •
