15-year Technology Sales Veteran Bolsters Team of Trusted Advisers Helping Managed Services Providers (MSPs) Succeed with Cybersecurity

High Wire Networks, providers of the Overwatch Managed Security Platform-as-a-Service, announced today that cybersecurity expert Travis Ray has joined the company as Director of Channel Sales. Ray brings sales and thought leadership to the Overwatch team and, in his new role, will build relationships with Managed Services Providers (MSPs) to enable them to become trusted authorities by delivering the Overwatch Managed Security Platform as a Service to businesses of all sizes.

Ray joins High Wire with more than six years working in managed security services and 15 years in technology sales. Most recently, Ray was a Channel Account Manager for Infogresssive, a managed security service provider (MSSP). Prior to that he worked at AlienVault/AT&T Cyber, where he was named 2017’s Top Channel Account Manager. He also spent several years managing accounts for computer software and telecommunications companies.

Ray is passionate about cybersecurity education, working alongside his channel partners with a hands-on approach to show them how to price, package, market and sell managed security services.

“I’m 100 percent committed to building relationships first, under promising and over delivering. Follow-through is key,” said Ray. “I’ve been successful with MSPs because I help them understand the business risks and rewards, not by saying they need to add more technology to their stacks.”

“One of our goals at Overwatch is to help boost MSPs’ value propositions from trusted advisers to trusted authorities,” said High Wire CEO Mark Porter. “We’ve made significant inroads with the expert leadership of Chief Information Security Officer Phil Burnett and Chief Technology Officer David Barton. Adding Travis’s experience in cybersecurity and exceptional relational skills strengthens our commitment to helping our partners succeed.”

“I am excited to help build the Overwatch Partner Program,” said Ray. “High Wire Networks already has a strong reputation as a trusted partner to VARs, MSPs, distributors and integrators. With Overwatch, High Wire Networks is taking the hard-earned trust of 20 years and adding top resources to become a trusted authority in the cybersecurity space. I’m excited to help our partners do the same.”
