In this role, Anderson will drive Exabeam’s EMEA channel strategy and delivery, providing support for Exabeam’s partner community of system integrators, MSSPs and valued added resellers.

Anderson will also oversee the recruitment of new partners and expansion into new territories in the EMEA region. He will also help partners to deliver quicker time to value for their customers’ complex security use cases, regardless of their size or location.

With 15 years experience working in the IT channel, Anderson joins Exabeam from Quest and One Identity Software, where he held leadership positions focused on global MSP and distribution and channel strategy.

Prior to joining Quest Software, Anderson spent eight years at Ivanti where he led the EMEA partner business through a period of significant growth for the company, launching a new partner program and consolidating multiple partner communities to grow partner-sourced deals and channel cross-sell across multiple lines of business.

Ted Plumis, vice president, channel at Exabeam, said, “James is an excellent addition to the EMEA leadership team, and we are delighted to welcome him at such an exciting time for the company. James’ experience and leadership will be crucial, ensuring the team is best positioned to support our partners in taking full advantage of the significant market opportunity Exabeam has carved out in recent years.”

Exabeam recently announced the XDR (extended detection and response) Alliance, a partnership of cybersecurity and information technology innovators committed to an inclusive and collaborative XDR framework and architecture. The goal of the XDR Alliance – with founding members including Armis, Expel, ExtraHop, Google Cloud Security, Mimecast, Netskope, and SentinelOne – is to foster an open approach to extended detection and response and enable organisations to protect themselves against the growing number of cyberattacks, breaches, and intrusions.

James Anderson, area vice president, EMEA channels at Exabeam, added, “I look forward to working with the team, our partner community, and the broader XDR Alliance as we help define XDR and make security success the norm.”
