New York - February 12, 2018 – SecurityScorecard, the leader in security ratings, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Michael Rogers, Vice President, Strategic Alliances & Channels, to its prestigious list of 2018 Channel Chiefs. The executives on this annual list represent top leaders in the IT channel who excel at driving growth and revenue in their organization through channel partners.
Channel Chief honorees are selected by CRN’s editorial staff on the basis of their professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community, and strategies for driving future growth and innovation. Each of the 2018 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the IT channel by consistently promoting, defending and executing outstanding channel partner programs.
As a veteran cybersecurity global channel executive, Michael Rogers has spent the last 20 years building world-class channel operations, as well as strategic alliances with leading cybersecurity and risk management companies. Since joining SecurityScorecard in 2016, Rogers has made it his mission to stand up the company’s indirect go-to-market strategy, including global channels, business development and strategic partnerships. In addition to launching the company’s inaugural partner program in January 2017, Rogers has built a seasoned team of Partner Account Managers to deliver on the company’s commitment to global partners.
“The executives on CRN’s 2018 Channel Chiefs list stand out for their exceptional leadership, vision and commitment to the channel,” said Robert Faletra, Executive Chairman of The Channel Company. “These individuals deserve special recognition for their development and support of robust partner programs, innovative business strategy and significant contribution to the overall health of a vigorously growing channel. We applaud each Channel Chief’s impressive record of accomplishments and look forward to their future successes.”
“The SecurityScorecard partner program has experienced unparalleled success in the past year. From the launch of the program to leading the security ratings arena, Michael Rogers’ efforts in building the program are cause for celebration,” said Aleksandr Yampolskiy, Co-Founder and CEO of SecurityScorecard. “With Rogers at the channel and strategic alliance helm, SecurityScorecard is acting on its commitment and dedication to the channel.”

Headquartered in the heart of New York City, SecurityScorecard’s vision is to create a new language for measuring and communication security risk. The company was founded in late 2013 by Dr. Aleksandr Yampolskiy and Sam Kassoumeh, two former cybersecurity practitioners who had served, respectively, as Chief Information Security Officer and Head of Security and Compliance. With cloud solutions becoming an increasingly integral part of the security technology stack, Yampolskiy and Kassoumeh recognized the need to address third- and fourth-party risk as well as better understand the security capabilities of their business partners. Since its founding, the company has grown dramatically and now counts hundreds of leading brands as customers.
