PHOENIX, AZ – 01 Aug, 2016 – SimpleWan, a cloud automated cybersecurity and network solution, announced today that it has expanded its channel from wholesale into Master Agent services with the hire of Brian Purdue, Director of Channel Sales. The SimpleWan solution delivers real-time intrusion defense, as well as, cloud management. SD-WAN (vMPLS) technology, and support for key compliance regulations including: the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

Prior to joining SimpleWan, Perdue served as a National Channel Manager with Mitel and helped launch their products to the Agent Channel.  He also has spent years in the channel supporting agents on complex WAN designs and deployments throughout his career in the industry.

“We are excited to welcome Perdue as Director of Channel Sales to lead and develop our Agent Channel. Perdue brings nearly two decades of telecommunications and channel experience with a strong background in channel development,” said Erik Knight, chief executive officer, SimpleWan.

“I am elated to join the SimpleWan team and help bring a unique product to the master agent community,” said Perdue.  “It was SimpleWan’s commitment to customers and their passion to deliver compelling service offerings that fascinated me.  Often times, providers focus on keeping up with the others; while SimpleWan concentrates on how to be distinct in the industry.”

“Through the extreme growth of our wholesale and reseller channel we’ve learned that managed service providers look for solutions in two ways. When looking for replacement cyber security and firewall technologies they look at hardware solutions; but when looking for SD-WAN and network monitoring they are often look at services from the Agent Channel. SimpleWan’s full suite of features provides both a full service offering as well as a legacy hardware firewall replacement. With today’s converging channels it’s important to connect with our customers through both methods that best fit their business model,” said Knight.

Via the SimpleWan platform, IT specialists can track real-time statistics and key network health indicators, such as temperature, traffic, latency, and link connectivity, across multiple devices from an easy-to-use centralized dashboard.
