The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, employees, and the companies they run—worldwide. The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards.
Maggie Gallagher, president of the Stevie Awards, said, “In a year like no other in our lifetimes, we’ve produced a cohort of amazing, Stevie-winning women, organizations, and achievements like no other. At all times, our winners show themselves to be fearless and indomitable, but their leadership and example are especially valued this year.”
As SVP of Enterprise Sales at Sectigo, Jennifer Binet is responsible for global enterprise sales strategy and success, contributing to the company’s consistent YoY enterprise sales growth. Binet brings to her role 18 years of leadership, sales, and channel experience in cybersecurity, cloud services, and other technology markets. She is dedicated to optimizing the talent on her team, providing leadership, and encouraging women to move into executive-level roles. Her grasp of cybersecurity challenges and architectures, as well as high level of engagement, help a growing roster of large enterprise customers effectively secure the digital identities of every connected device and user across their organizations.

Ragsdale recently led the successful launch of Sectigo’s Web Security Platform, which combines the company’s industry-leading SSL/TLS certificates with eight layers of web security, managed from a single cloud-based portal. The platform scans for vulnerabilities, proactively patches and removes malware, and automatically conducts backups, offering resellers and their customers peace of mind. Ragsdale also supports Sectigo partners with new sales enablement materials, innovative marketing campaigns, and events that increase value and sales across markets.
