HotLink CEO Lynn LeBlanc Receives CRN’s 2019 Women of the Channel Honor

IT transformation leader empowers channel to address next-generation cyber threats and safeguard data protection systems

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--()--HotLink® Corporation, the market leader in IT transformation solutions, today announced CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named CEO Lynn LeBlanc to its prestigious 2019 Women of the Channel list. Leaders receiving the annual honor are from all areas of the IT channel ecosystem, representing technology suppliers, distributors, solution providers and more. Each is recognized for contributions to channel advocacy, growth and visionary leadership.

CRN editors receive a multitude of submissions for Women of the Channel consideration every year. They select the final list honorees based on professional accomplishments, demonstrated expertise and ongoing dedication to the IT channel.

LeBlanc and the team at HotLink work hand-in-hand with backup and disaster recovery service (BaaS/DRaaS) providers to bring advanced cybersecurity protection to their customers, together with the go-to-market strategies that enable service provider success. With HotLink’s first-of-its-kind technology and marketing expertise, partners are able to demonstrate early customer wins and motivate their teams to focus on high value-added cybersecurity capabilities.

Recent research from IBM highlighted an alarming mean time of 197 days to identify a data breach incident, with an additional 69 days required to contain it. With cyber threats growing in complexity and volume, HotLink’s next-generation cybersecurity technology empowers BaaS and DRaaS providers to differentiate their service offerings and help customers protect critical systems from ever-increasing cybersecurity threats -- including latent compromises that were previously impossible to detect.

“CRN’s 2019 Women of the Channel list honors influential leaders who are accelerating channel growth through mutually-beneficial partnerships, incredible leadership, strategic vision, and unique contributions in their field,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “This accomplished group of leaders is driving channel success and we are proud to honor their achievements.”

HotLink’s LeBlanc noted, “Over the past year, we’ve helped our partners grow their business and protect customers with new cyber technology that leverages patent-pending security fingerprinting, data transformation and other sophisticated capabilities designed for our BaaS and DRaaS partners. Key to this is introducing solutions that are powerful, yet easy for providers to deploy and simple for customers to use. This honor is particularly validating because it recognizes the value we’re delivering to the channel in staying ahead of emerging cyber threats that can prevent customers’ recovery from a security breach at the worst possible time, often costing customers millions of dollars in revenue and negatively impacting their public reputations.”

The 2019 Women of the Channel list will be featured in the June issue of CRN Magazine and online at www.CRN.com/WOTC.
