Ping Identity’s Lisa Ferrari Dunn Recognized in CRN’s 2016 Women of the Channel

Leadership in Driving Momentum across Channel Business, Strategic Alliances and Partner Programs


Denver, CO — May 16, 2016

Ping Identity, the leader of Identity Defined Security, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Lisa Ferrari Dunn, head of Ping Identity’s Channel and Alliances Marketing, to its prestigious 2016 Women of the Channel list.The women executives who comprise this annual list span the IT channel, representing vendors, distributors, solution providers and other organizations that figure prominently in the channel ecosystem. Each is recognized for her outstanding leadership, vision, and unique role in driving channel growth and innovation.


CRN editors select the Women of the Channel honorees on the basis of their professional accomplishments, demonstrated expertise and ongoing dedication to the IT channel.


Lisa was integral in launching the Identity Defined Security Alliance, the industry’s first network of security companies who all share a vision of providing enterprises with a unified approach that places identity at the center of security. Currently making up the alliance are Ping Identity, Netskope, ThreatMetrix, VMware and Optiv. Together they provide a new blueprint for CISOs to design a comprehensive identity defined security platform, including best practices for integrating these best-of-breed security solutions.


Additionally, Lisa spearheaded the re-launch of  Ping Identity’s channel network and partner program— as now more than one-third of Ping’s revenue is partner influenced. She successfully created clearer benefits, benchmarks and expectations for those interested in joining Ping Identity’s partner community. Part of this initiative also included designing roadmaps that charted out the path to partnership via three distinct programs: channel/reseller, MSP and Alliance.


“These executives have made a lasting mark on our industry—growing and elevating partner programs, leading transitions to new business models and introducing cutting-edge go-to-market strategies, among other remarkable achievements,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “We congratulate all the 2016 Women of the Channel and celebrate their singular contributions to the advancement of the channel ecosystem.”


“I am honored to have CRN recognize the momentum and strength of Ping’s growing channel program. I’m fortunate to be working with extremely talented individuals who are committed to growing Ping’s channel business and continuing to enable our partner community to offer the best Identity Defined Security solutions in the market,” said Dunn.


The 2016 Women of the Channel list will be featured in the June issue of CRN Magazine and online
