Hexadite’s Jessica Couto Named to 2017 CRN Women of the Channel Power 100 List

Boston, MA, May 15, 2017 – Hexadite, provider of the only autonomous security automation platform for end-to-end incident response, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Jessica Couto, Hexadite’s Vice President of Channel and Alliances, to its list of 2017 Power 100, an elite subset of its prestigious annual Women of the Channel list.

CRN’s editorial team selects Women of the Channel honorees based on their professional accomplishments, demonstrated expertise and ongoing dedication to the channel. The Power 100 belong to an exclusive group drawn from this larger list: women leaders whose vision and influence are key drivers of their companies’ success and help move the entire IT channel forward.

An industry veteran with more than 20 years in technology, Couto recently joined Hexadite to launch its Security Automation Channel Program and help deliver the collaborative approach, margins and support partners need to successfully meet the increasing market demand for Hexadite’s automated incident response solution. This is Couto’s third year in a row on the Power 100 list, having been recognized previously for leading channel sales at Carbonite and Bit9/Carbon Black. Earlier in her career, Couto also led channel sales for LANDesk and Kaspersky Lab.

Couto will be recognized among the 2017 Women of the Channel and Power 100 lists in the June issue of CRN Magazine and online at

“These extraordinary executives support every aspect of the channel ecosystem, from technical innovation to marketing to business development, working tirelessly to keep the channel moving into the future,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “They are creating and elevating channel partner programs, developing fresh go-to-market strategies, strengthening the channel’s network of partnerships and building creative new IT solutions, among many other contributions. We congratulate all the 2017 Women of the Channel on their stellar accomplishments and look forward to their future success.”

Under Couto’s leadership, Hexadite is helping channel organizations address two of the biggest challenges that organizations face today when it comes to cybersecurity: the rapidly growing volume of cyber attacks, and the worldwide shortage of qualified security professionals needed to protect against them.

“Helping to create success for partners while building and establishing outstanding brands in the technology industry has been a passion of mine. It’s an honor to be recognized for something you love doing, and it’s especially meaningful to be among the incredible women on CRN’s Power 100 list,” said Couto. “I’ve built some very close relationships over my years in the channel, and I look forward to continuing to foster them and create new ones by helping to create wins for partners during this period of Hexadite’s rapid growth.”
