Santa Clara, Calif., and Washington, D.C. — May 10, 2021ThycoticCentrify, a leading provider of cloud identity security solutions formed by the merger of Privileged Access Management (PAM) leaders Thycotic and Centrify, announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Katie McCroskey, Director of Knowledge Management & Training, and Kara Trovato, Strategic National Partner Manager, to the highly respected Women of the Channel list for 2021. This annual list recognizes the unique strengths, vision, and achievements of female leaders in the IT channel. The 2021 Women of the Channel list acknowledges women from all over the IT channel, including vendors, distributors, and solution providers. 

The women honored on this year’s list pushed comprehensive business plans, with marketing initiatives and other innovative ideas to support their partners and customers, helping them through the uncertainty brought on by the global COVID-19 pandemic. CRN celebrates these exceptional women for their leadership, dedication, and channel advocacy.

McCroskey advanced Thycotic’s channel business by onboarding partners and delivering exceptional technical training and sales enablement. She created informative content, conducted training webinars, designed and built on-demand eLearning technical training courses, and customized onsite training sessions for partners and their customers. She empowers partners to understand Thycotic’s products, market position, and selling strategies by taking complex cybersecurity concepts and converting them into digestible training modules that inform and enable partners.

Trovato has been heavily invested in the growth of Thycotic’s Federal channel, the company’s fastest-growing and largest pipeline-generating segment derived through the channel. She works closely with the partner community to enhance Thycotic’s posture within the Department of Defense (DOD) community, specifically helping address and meet their continuous diagnostics and mitigation (CDM) and identity, credentialing and access management (ICAM) mandates.
