We’re so excited to share that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, named Silverfort’s Leslie Bois, Vice President of Global Channel Sales, and Amy Kowalchyk, Director of the American Channel, to the Women of the Channel list for 2024. Since bringing Bois on board in early 2023 to lead global channel sales, Silverfort has become a 100% channel-first organization, creating all the foundational elements from rules of engagement, target partners, portals, onboarding, training, and services certifications.

Today, ​​we also officially unveiled the Global Partner Program to meet the growing demand for unified identity security.  Our comprehensive Unified Partner Program enables global channel and cyber insurance partners to create the ultimate identity protection framework, allowing partners to enjoy seamless integration with other products in the partner’s portfolio and access comprehensive training and compliance support. This will deliver the 360-degree protection organizations need in their complex environments, while supporting Silverfort’s channel-first strategy.

We spent years researching and designing the identity security platform to enable modern identity security controls everywhere and eliminate the silos and blind spots that identity security suffers from.  Silverfort, with the help of its partners, is hyper-focused on offering customers visibility and protection for all their identities, whether on-prem, in the cloud, human, or machine—including systems that no other solution can protect. Due to Silverfort’s customer-first mindset, partnering with organizations that have deep expertise in identity to protect customers together was the ideal strategy. Since the decision to make the company’s business 100% channel-based, revenues have grown rapidly—more than 100% year-over-year—with more than 90% of the revenues going through its channel program, and, in some regions, 100%.

Every year, CRN highlights women from vendor, distributor, and solution provider organizations whose vision and leadership benefit the technology industry. The CRN 2024 Women of the Channel honorees are creative, strategic leaders who are committed to using their skills to innovate and drive success for their partners and customers.

As Silverfort’s first North American channel hire, we’re excited to see Amy Kowalchyk recognized alongside Leslie. Amy is a strong advocate for the partners, Silverfort’s business, and her teammates. Since joining, she has spearheaded the execution of the company’s channel strategy in the region and doubled the pipeline and partner revenue year-over-year.  At Silverfort, Leslie and Amy continue to build and execute a global channel strategy, allowing their partner community to expand their services offering and footprint in the emerging identity security space.

“It is a great privilege to honor the remarkable achievements of these women leaders in the IT channel,” said Jennifer Follett, VP of U.S. Content and Executive Editor, CRN at The Channel Company. “Each woman on the list has demonstrated a deep commitment to innovation and leadership that advances their organizations and drives transformation and success across the IT channel.”

The 2024 Women of the Channel list will be featured in the June issue of CRN Magazine and online at
