Ostra Cybersecurity, a leading provider of world-class cybersecurity solutions tailored for small and medium-sized businesses, is pleased to welcome Laura Riebschlager as Director of Partner Success. This new hire is the latest example of the company’s strategic investment in its Channel Partner program, which continues to generate exponential growth for the company.
Ostra Cybersecurity’s channel partner program is designed to help its network of consultants, IT and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) enhance value for their small to medium-sized business clients by offering comprehensive data protection solutions.
In this role, Riebschlager will focus on building a team of talented experts who can ensure that Ostra never loses its personal touch with clients, despite the rapid growth that is occurring. Among other things, she will support new and existing Channel Partners by developing strategic plans, trainings, marketing resources, and tools that make it even easier for them to meet their goals.
Ostra’s market niche is ensuring that top-notch data security solutions are accessible for small and medium-sized businesses. Many of today’s organizations are navigating massive changes in their virtual workforces, IT infrastructure and data security regulations. Ostra Cybersecurity’s technology suite—combined with the service expertise of its channel partners—deliver a comprehensive solution that addresses a unique set of specialized IT challenges facing business owners today.
Riebschlager is a fierce advocate for partners and clients in the technology industry. With more than 17 years of sales and operations experience, she specializes in working with SMBs as well as top tech leaders. Prior to joining Ostra, Riebschlager already had experience collaborating with the core leadership team at Ostra—including Director of Strategic Partnerships Mike Barlow, Chief Growth Officer Paul Dobbins, and President Joe Johnson. Their careers all intersected at various tech-related companies over the years.
According to Barlow, Riebschlager’s account leadership experience in the technology space makes her a valuable asset to Ostra’s partner success team.
“Ostra’s growing Channel Partner network has been like a fast-moving train over the past year,” Barlow said. “And we don’t see it slowing anytime soon. We are thrilled to have Laura as a dedicated resource to connect our partners with the cybersecurity expertise and support to accelerate their own success.”
Previously, Laura worked as an Account Director at Phobio, where she co-created multiple programs for SMBs to buy and sell used electronics. Laura also held sales management roles at companies such as Fortegra, the second largest credit insurer in the U.S., and Brightstar, the global leader of end-to-end mobile device lifecycle management solutions. Laura earned a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Nebraska.
“This is an exciting opportunity to help ensure that Ostra is constantly delivering on its mission to provide Fortune 100-level protection for businesses of all sizes,” Riebschlager said. “As someone who really enjoys thinking outside the box to solve problems for clients, I am thrilled to be a part of Ostra’s service-driven culture.”
