Vishal Bhadani joins Netskope as Channel lead for India

Netskope has appointed Vishal Bhadani as Channel Sales Director for India. In this role, Bhadani will oversee the company’s network of channel partners and distributors in the country, while also working to expand and deepen Netskope’s partnerships. This move aligns with Netskope’s strategy of relying on channels and alliances to grow its footprint in India.

Based in Bangalore, Bhadani brings 23 years of experience in enterprise technology across India and the Middle East. He began his career at Sify and then spent twelve years at Wipro, where he held various roles including National Manager of the Enterprise Security business, Regional Head of ITS Business and Operations, and Regional Head for System Integration and Maintenance Services sales for the Gulf region. Prior to joining Netskope, Bhadani worked at Lenovo for seven years, most recently serving as Cyber Security & Software Lead for India, where he managed sales, channels, and alliances.

Bhadani’s extensive experience with both major global system integrators and OEMs has provided him with a comprehensive understanding of the industry and expertise in establishing and leveraging relationships with diverse stakeholders. His cybersecurity knowledge and vast network will be instrumental in strengthening Netskope’s channel and alliance ecosystem in India, supporting, training, and growing key partners to enhance services for customers and end users.

Reflecting on his decision to join Netskope, Bhadani said, “With over 20 years in the channel community, I understand the challenges and opportunities in this market. I wanted to leverage this experience while continuing to contribute to the cybersecurity industry. I sought a visionary company shaping the industry, and Netskope, as a leader in Security Service Edge (SSE) and Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), fits that vision. This role allows me to build and maintain long-term partnerships with those who, like us, see SSE and SASE as crucial to addressing the evolving workplace and cyber threat landscape.”

Ajay Gupta, Country Manager for India and SAARC at Netskope, added, “Our success in India is driven by our channel partners and distributors. It was crucial for us to have a seasoned leader like Vishal to refine our existing partnerships and further expand our local footprint. His deep understanding of the cybersecurity market in India and his experience in setting up and growing practices will be a significant asset for us. I am delighted to welcome him to our team.”
