One partner reached by CRN agreed that he would like to see the momentum continue under the new CEO.

Richard Galganov, virtual chief information officer at Dallas-based HBR Technologies, a WatchGuard partner, said he is excited about the appointment.

"We highly regard WatchGuard. We think they are absolutely the market leader. I think that under Prakash's stewardship, they should only grow and be stronger," Galganov said.

While he said he doesn't know him personally, Galganov pointed to Prajwani's track record of growth at SafeNet, as well as its ultimate acquisition, as signs of the executive's strength.

"That says a lot about them and what he's accomplished," Galganov said. "We're excited about it."

Galganov said he would like to see WatchGuard stay the strong growth course it has been on with both its technology and communication with partners.

"I'd like them to stay on the cutting edge [of technology], and not the bleeding edge. That's what our clients want. ... Just keep the great communication they have with their partners, because if not for us, WatchGuard won't be successful," Galganov said.
