The prestigious CRN® Channel Chiefs list, released annually, recognizes leading IT channel vendor executives who continually demonstrate outstanding leadership, influence, innovation, and growth.
Plumis has more than 20 years of experience in channel sales and management programs in the information security industry. He is industry renowned for his ability to build and execute channel and partner go-to-market plans for early- to mid-stage security companies, especially as they progress toward and through the IPO process.
During the past 12 months,Ted spearheaded the expansion of Exabeam’s partner community to include companies at further reaches of the market. For SMB, efforts focused on signing partnerships with VARs and MSSPs with capabilities for selling SaaS offerings into the market.

This resulted in SIs building substantial service practices around Exabeam technology.

As we move through 2021, my team is committed to enhancing our partner community with exceptional programs and innovative technologies that fulfill our shared mission to help customers detect and defend against the most sophisticated cyberthreats. This award is further validation that the ecosystem we have built around the Exabeam Security Management Platform delivers incredible value for a broad range of security objectives and IT budgets, and I look forward to meeting those needs for our partners and customers.”
