Longtime channel icon Amy Luby is bringing her know-how to Seceon, a cybersecurity platform company, as its first VP of ecosystems and channel chief. Luby is a former master MSP and had previously served as channel chief and channel executive at a number of organizations including Acronis and MSP Revolution.

Luby joins at a time when Seceon is already experiencing growth for its multi-tenant aiSIEM and aiXDR platform. Seceon said the platform is optimized for MSPs looking to launch advanced detection and response services. It is also designed for MSSPs looking to automate to deliver profitable managed security services.

Luby told ChannelE2E that MSPs and MSSPs are pulling together a lot of point solutions when it comes to building their cybersecurity stacks. The lack of integration between these solutions causes plenty of headaches for service providers, she said. What’s more, she said, Seceon is providing an automated solution that provides most of the elements that MSPs and MSSPs would need for their cybersecurity stacks.

While Seceon has already had a channel program in place and has been working with both channel and enterprise customers, the hire of Luby is a strategic one. Her charter is to build Seceon’s visibility within the channel and create channel enablement programs, including improvements to onboarding, support and training. The company has hired a number of people for its channel efforts over the past few years, and Luby is only the most recent, she said.

“I am super excited to bring Seceon further into the managed services community, there is a deep need to shift many service providers from a protection and prevention only security program to a highly automated, detection and response platform,” Luby said in a prepared statement. “As MSPs and MSSPs choose their strategic vendors, Seceon is rising to the top as it enables them to maintain control, deliver lower risks and earn higher margins.”

Seceon CEO Chandra Pandey said that Luby’s long-term involvement and deep understanding of the MSP and MSSP channel communities is a perfect match for Seceon and its ongoing efforts in the channel.

Another big channel name voiced his confidence in the new hire, too.

“I’ve known Amy Luby for 16 years and her deep understanding of the IT channel and how ecosystems are evolving, combined with her passion for managed services success is a great benefit to the community,” said Jay McBain, chief analyst for channels, partnerships & ecosystems at Canalys.

Watch for Luby at the industry’s big channel events in the months ahead.
