CRN Honors Armis’ Mike Baker as 2019 CRN Channel Chief

PALO ALTO, Calif., Feb. 15, 2019 — Armis, the enterprise IoT security company, today announced that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Mike Baker, Vice President of Global Sales, to its prestigious list of 2019 Channel Chiefs. The top leaders honored in this list continually strive to drive growth and revenue in their organization through their channel partners and strategies, and are the “Who’s Who” of the channel industry.

Each of the 2019 Channel Chiefs have demonstrated exceptional leadership, vision, and commitment to their channel partner programs, and are selected carefully by CRN’s editorial staff as a result of their professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community, and proven track record in driving future growth and innovation within their organization.

Armis is the first agentless, enterprise-class security platform to address the new threat landscape of unmanaged and IoT devices. Registering deals completely through the channel, Armis is helping partners solve the biggest security issue facing enterprises today – the explosion of unmanaged and IoT devices in the workplace. With 8 billion connected devices in use today, and 25 billion or more in use by 2021, IoT devices are the new enterprise attack landscape. Most companies can’t see 40 percent of devices at use in their environments, a significant security risk given many of these new unmanaged and IoT devices are incapable of being protected by traditional cybersecurity solutions. Armis eliminates the IoT security blind spot.

“The individuals on CRN’s 2019 Channel Chiefs list deserve special recognition for their contribution and support in the development of robust partner programs, innovative business strategies, and significant influence to the overall health of the IT channel,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “We applaud each Channel Chief’s remarkable record of accomplishments and look forward to following their continued success.”

“In order to secure Enterprise IoT, companies must be able to see and control all unmanaged devices. Today, businesses are experiencing a digital transformation larger in scale than the PC and mobile revolutions combined, due to IoT. Our partners and customers love Armis because we’re helping them solve this massive security gap,” said Mike Baker, VP of Global Sales at Armis. “Our platform is unique in that our channel partners can deliver real-time device discovery, as well as threat assessment and mitigation. This recognition from CRN highlights our ability to provide Armis’ partners with a green field opportunity to help their customers, plus additional services from our product portfolio as they eliminate this security blindspot that exists in all enterprises today.”

The 2019 CRN Channel Chiefs list, including the 50 Most Influential Channel Chiefs, is featured online at and will appear in the February 2019 issue of CRN.
