Hexis Cyber Solutions Executive Named 2014 CRN Channel Chiefs Award Winner for Second Consecutive Year

HANOVER, Md., March 18, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hexis Cyber Solutions, Inc. (Hexis), a subsidiary of The KEYW Holding Corporation (Nasdaq:KEYW), today announced that John Hopkins, Director of Global Channel Sales for Hexis, was named a winner in the 2014 CRN Channel Chiefs Awards Program for the second consecutive year. The CRN Channel Chiefs are selected by the publication’s editorial staff and recognizes executives that are driving an organization’s channel strategy and building successful relationships with reseller partners worldwide.

In addition to growing channel sales and developing global partner programs, John works with reseller partners to introduce customers to Hexis’ innovative security tools such as HawkEye G, a next-generation threat investigation and removal solution that enables organizations to detect, investigate and remove advanced threats. Under John’s guidance, Hexis’ channel program has grown into new regions around the world, including Jordan, Australia, New Zealand, Romania, Siberia and Poland. In the U.S., the company is also expanding its partner footprint to include leading cybersecurity consulting companies. In addition, Hexis launched the Partner Portal, a one-stop shop for partner resources.

“With the increasing sophistication of advanced cyber threats, enterprise security professionals realize that traditional perimeter solutions are not enough and are turning to partners and vendors for technology that can remove malware before it compromises sensitive data,” said Chris Fedde, President of Hexis. “Over the last year, Hexis has dedicated considerable resources to its channel program to ensure the success of our partners as customer demand for full-spectrum threat remediation has skyrocketed. John’s recognition is a testament to our commitment to the channel community and continued growth worldwide.”

This award comes on the heels of Hexis’ recently launched worldwide security channel partner program, which is designed to extend the company’s security footprint while providing sales and marketing resources to reseller partners throughout the world. Hexis is working with partners throughout North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Asia Pacific region to provide enterprise customers with access to the HawkEye family of products and services, including HawkEye AP and HawkEye G. With these innovative technologies, organizations can detect the subtle “digital exhaust” left behind by stealthy malicious code and use policy-based countermeasures to remove threats at machine speeds.

“During my time at Hexis, we’ve experienced tremendous growth by working with channel partners such as Unisystems, Proact and AIRNET to implement creative strategies for customer success,” said John Hopkins, Director of Global Channel Sales for Hexis. “This award not only highlights the success of our channel program, but it validates the value our solutions provide for both resellers and end-users. I look forward to working with new and existing partners to continue this momentum both domestically and abroad.”
