Sarah Ashburn of Attivo Networks Named to 2022 Channel Chiefs by CRN

FREMONT, Calif. — Feb. 8, 2022 — Attivo Networks®, the experts in identity security and lateral movement attack prevention, today announced that Sarah Ashburn, the company’s SVP of sales and customer success, was named to the high-profile list of 2022 Channel Chiefs. The designation, awarded by CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, recognizes a select group of influential channel vendor executives who consistently promote and execute effective channel partner programs.

In 2021, Ashburn oversaw Attivo Networks’ explosive channel growth in North America, which included increasing the number of partners by 110%, the pipeline generated through partners by 200% and the overall partner conversion rate by 181%. A major contributor to this growth was the launch of the Attivo Identity Detection and Response (IDR) solution. With identity being the new security battlefield, the Attivo IDR solution provides detection and response for credential-based and privilege escalation attacks and visibility to identity exposures and cloud overprovisioning for reducing the attack surface.

“Our global partner program is growing exponentially, and we are thrilled Sarah’s work with the channel is being recognized,” said Tushar Kothari, CEO of Attivo Networks. “Through her vision and leadership, a majority of our new business is now going through a channel partner. This significant shift in our sales operation underscores our commitment and innovation in the channel.”

The CRN editorial staff evaluated Channel Chief candidates on several factors such as their dedication and accomplishments as channel advocates, as well as their industry prestige and leadership. Successful candidates have shaped the IT channel with innovative strategies and programs and have promoted partnerships.

“CRN’s 2022 Channel Chiefs recognition is given exclusively to the foremost channel executives who consistently design, promote, and execute effective partner programs and strategies,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “We’re thrilled to recognize the tireless work and unwavering commitment these honorees put into fostering outstanding business innovation and building strong partner programs to drive channel engagement and success.”

CRN’s 2022 Channel Chiefs list will be featured in the February 2022 issue of CRN Magazine and online at
