Zach Lakovics
Channels Director

"As a field sales professional it can feel as if you are on an island and no matter how hard you scream and shout, you are never heard. At Cybereason, that is never the case. We act as one and we have access to all the right people and resources when we need it."

Ankur Chaturvedi
Senior Customer Success Manager

"As a CSM at Cybereason, having direct access and exposure to high level execs, not just at Cybereason, but with my clients is a differentiator. Previously working in sales, I would have to claw my way up the chain to get there, but as a CSM at Cybereason it's not just a recommendation, but an expectation that I'm communicating with them regularly."
