Evo Security demonstrated a major investment in the IT channel by assembling an all-star lineup of key leaders who helped build Datto from the ground up.

The cybersecurity SaaS company, which focuses on MSP-focused identity and access management security products, announced the addition of six executives to its team who are expected to make a huge impact in the industry.

“I can’t explain how pumped and grateful I am to work with some of the channel’s most experienced and high-quality professionals,” CEO and Founder Michael Roth said in a prepared statement. “They really know how to build programs that take care of partners and deliver best-of-breed success. We’re very selective about who joins our team, and I can’t wait to see what they can do in the months and years ahead.”

The news is significant for IT services providers, as the new team members bring valuable insights, experience, and collaborative opportunities for MSPs. This could lead to enhanced solutions, support, and overall advancement within the channel.

Learn a little more about the new executives on the Evo Security team:

Badiani is familiar face and a veteran in the MSP Channel for over 20 years. Badiani recently joined Evo Security as an advisor to the CEO and Evo’s board of directors on all matters related to go-to-market. He also helps drive awareness about the value of Evo Security to the MSP community.

Badiani was at Datto for over nine years, serving as vice president of Americas Growth Sales, and helped Datto grow the Canadian MSP market to over 2,000 MSP Partners.

Prior to Datto, Badiani spent seven years at Level Platforms (acquired by AVG Technologies), a pioneer for remote monitoring and management (RMM).

“What attracted me to Evo is that they are an MSP-centric organization that helps MSPs grow their managed services revenue by offering purpose-built, cost-effective identity and privileged access solutions to SMBs” said Badiani.

“I’m thrilled to bring Urvish’s channel knowledge into Evo, and consider him one of the world’s premier GTM experts with respect to channel mechanics,” Roth added.

He was responsible for all new business sales at Datto in the U.S. market, contributing to thousands of MSP partnerships across several Datto product lines.

Morano leads all sales and marketing for Evo Security, has assembled an all-star sales team, and has a primary focus on delivering a best-of-breed partner experience.

“It’s rare to find a channel-only company with a clear message, solid market fit, and a platform that can deliver an immediate security impact. Evo was an easy decision for me,” said Morano.

I’m excited to work with him.”

Added Roth: “Cisco has a naturally warm and welcoming demeanor, yet, is also very conscientious and technical. His innate skill sets and willingness to roll up his sleeves are a perfect match for new partners rolling out Evo for the first time. It’s impressive to see how much he cares about partner success.”

“Everyone at Evo is working toward the same goal, and that is building a world-class identity and privileged access management solution for MSPs. It’s great to wake up every day and know we’re making a positive impact,” said Wolf.

Roth added that Wolf has shown an unwavering dedication to engage and educate the MSP ecosystem. “He truly cares about the success of MSPs and is passionate about aligning himself with the best solutioning to do that.
