iland Recognized for Channel Growth and Momentum
iland, an 11:11 Systems company and a leading VMware-based provider for application hosting, data protection and disaster recovery services delivered on the iland Secure Cloud Platform, announced that the company and its channel leaders have been recognized for the growth and success of its channel program. CRN has named Heather Bouvier, Jacquelyn Gonzalez and Laura Shafer to its Women of the Channel list for 2022. This esteemed list honors the incredible accomplishments of female leaders in the IT channel. Those named on this annual list come from all corners of the IT channel - including vendors, distributors and solution providers whose vision, expertise and contributions make an impact on the industry every day. 

"We are proud to once again recognize the remarkable leaders on this year's Women of the Channel list. Their influence, confidence and diligence continue to accelerate channel success significantly," said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. "Their accomplishments will inspire others, and we look forward to witnessing their future contributions to the channel."

As the rise in ransomware drives organizational leaders to prepare for the high likelihood of experiencing a cybercrime event, companies are increasingly turning to iland to defend, protect and quickly recover from data loss. The growth in remote work around the world has increased demand for the company's cloud services too, as IT leaders look to iland's solutions for comprehensive protection and security and high levels of performance for mission critical data. 

As a result of this growing demand, CRN has also recognized iland's partner program as one of the most distinguished partner programs among cloud suppliers in the IT channel with its fifth consecutive 5-Star rating in its 2022 Partner Program Guide. For the third year, CRN has also named Koorosh Khashayar, iland vice president of global channels, to its list of 2022 Channel Chiefs. Khashayar has been an integral part of iland's commitment to expand its channel presence with tools and services that help partners build long-term, sustainable cloud businesses. 

"Providing our partners with the resources necessary to engage their customers in meaningful ways has never been more critical," said Khashayar. "In the past year, we've made massive investments in our partner community, which includes sales and technical certification and training, turnkey marketing support and increased MDF and SPIFFs. As a result, our partners have seen their sales increase and businesses grow significantly. It's an honor to work with partners around the world and to receive recognition from CRN for these important initiatives."
