Thu, 2nd Nov 2023

Illumio has announced the appointment of Todd Palmer as their new Senior Vice President of Global Partner Sales and Alliances. Palmer, a channel veteran of Palo Alto Networks, Cohesity, and NetApp, brings with him over 20 years of experience which are set to enhance the tech firm's global partner sales and further strengthen alliances. This move emphasizes Illumio's commitment to their partner ecosystem and signals a significant step in the company's evolution.

Before joining Illumio, Palmer most recently held the position of Senior Vice President of Global Partner Sales at Tanium, a converged endpoint management solutions developer, where he oversaw the creation of their partner strategy, partner program, and the development of their diverse partner ecosystem.

Pamer has a clear view on the need for adaptable solutions and nurturing a strong partner ecosystem. He stated, "The key to predictable and scalable growth lies in crafting solutions adaptable across the market and nurturing a strong partner ecosystem. Not only is Illumio’s powerful Zero Trust Segmentation technology required for organisations looking to adopt a Zero Trust strategy and achieve cyber resilience, but the company is deeply committed to creating value for its partners."

He continued, "Now is the perfect time for me to join this tenacious team, as we look to further scale the business and ensure more organisations minimise the impact of breaches and ransomware."

Palmer's appointment will add to Illumio's dedication to its partners who play a significant role in enhancing the company's award-winning offerings. In 2023, for the second consecutive year, Illumio was honoured by CRN with a prestigious 5-star ranking in its 2023 Partner Program Guide, indicating Illumio’s continued investment in building a best-in-class partner programme.

John Lens, Chief Revenue Officer at Illumio, welcomed the appointment. He said, "Todd's vision aligns seamlessly with Illumio's growth objectives. As we strive to help customers achieve greater cyber resilience with Zero Trust Segmentation, his dedication to building and enhancing our partner-driven business is precisely the direction we aim for."

Illumio, the Zero Trust Segmentation company, seeks to prevent breaches and ransomware from spreading across the hybrid attack surface. The Illumio Zero Trust Segmentation Platform visualises all traffic flows between workloads, devices, and the internet. It sets granular segmentation policies to control communications and isolate high-value assets and compromised systems proactively or in response to active attacks.
