Cytracom Announces New Channel Chief, Expands MSP Offering

Cytracom, which provides VoIP and Unified Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS), has announced its new channel chief. Jim Hamilton, formerly with Level Platforms and CompTIA, will take the position of Vice President of Channel.

New ControlOne SASE Platform

Moreover, the company is readying the next generation of its ControlOne SASE platform, which will have a go-to-market model that fits better with the MSP model, the company explained to ChannelE2E. Ultimately, the SASE and VoIP will work together, enabling MSPs to offer multi-location organizations – or organizations with remote workers – a way to secure their VoIP networks, the company said

The ControlOne platform was unveiled almost exactly one year ago. Among the new platform features anticipated are expanded third-party integrations, silent RMM deployment options, and enhanced user and identity management.

Under Hamilton’s leadership, Cytracom’s Partner Program will introduce a series of on-demand educational and training resources focused on best practices, business enablement tools, and training around marketing, sales, and technology, the company said. Hamilton will also lead the expansion of the company’s strategic vendor partnerships in order to help further extend the capabilities of the ControlOne platform, according to Cytracom.
