LOS ANGELES, March 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Awareness Technologies Inc. (ATI), the only provider of Complete Insider Threat Security On-Demand, today announced that its Chief Channel Officer Ken Totura has been named a Channel Chief by Everything Channel's CRN. Channel Chiefs are leaders in creating effective channel programs for solution providers. They consistently defend, promote and execute effective channel partner programs and strategies.
Totura has been honored for his wealth of experience, commitment to the channel, and efforts in the creation and expansion of ATI Partner Program. Under Totura's leadership, ATI launched its Partner Program in June 2010 and has since recruited more than 100 partners, including distribution partners like Ingram Micro, Do IT Smarter, THISA, Securedis and MSP Centrifuge. ATI's partners benefit from its unique on-demand Insider Threat Security services, which include Data Loss Prevention (DLP), Web Filtering, Employee Monitoring and Laptop Recovery.
"SaaS-based internal threat protection is one of fastest growing areas in security. Our solution, which is uniquely architected around the endpoint and delivered in the cloud, is a truly integrated solution for companies of all sizes – from SMBs to enterprises," said Ken Totura. "I have dedicated my career to the channel and I'm honored to be included on this prestigious list."

This year's Channel Chiefs offer tremendous insight into the who's who of the Channel," said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, Everything Channel.

We applaud this year's Channel Chiefs for their successful partner programs and strategies."
This year's Channel Chiefs were chosen by the CRN Editorial staff.
