The US-based cybersecurity product company Forcepoint is appointing Kevin Isaac as vice president of sales. Isaac is based in the firm’s Reading office and reports to chief revenue officer, Sean Foster.
Isaac will lead for the company’s operations across EMEA, covering the company’s products, including CASB, data loss prevention, insider threat, web security, email security and firewalls.
Sean Foster said: “In the new digital and mobile world where there is no longer a perimeter, the detection and protection of data using point products is just not good enough. The market is moving to cyber solutions that adapt protection based on the context of user behavior, and we need inspirational and driven leaders to help customers and partners address this paradigm shift. Kevin and his teams will help lead the charge in delivering the most intelligent systems that facilitate business and foster productivity while stopping bad cyber activity.”
In the last month, the EMEA sales team also added Mahmoud-Samy Ibrahim to head emerging markets. Ibrahim joins from Arbor Networks and will focus on Dubai, Russia, Turkey and United Arab Emirates.
Most recently, Isaac was senior vice president for EMEA Enterprise Sales at Symantec; he held various regional sales roles at Symantec, including responsibility for all mid-sized and emerging regions.
Forcepoint has also made an appointment in APAC, with George Chang joining as Vice President of sales for the region. Most recently, Chang served as regional vice president of APAC sales at Fortinet in Singapore.
