Network security company hires new Chief Strategy Officer


Former SVP at Intel Security Group, Pedro Abreu, has been hired by continuous monitoring and mitigation solutions provider, ForeScout Technologies as the company's Chief Strategy Officer. Mr Abreu will strengthen the world class team at ForeScout with his experience as a security industry executive and will provide the drive to achieve the next growth stage objectives.



Having gained strong operational leadership experience in such companies as McKinsey, EMC and Intel Security, Mr Abreu is well placed to bring the product development, sales and marketing functions together in a cross-functional corporate strategy to build more and deeper strategic technology partnerships with top vendors in the industry.



Commenting on his new appointment, Pedro Abreu stated that the unique technology offered by ForeScout to provide full visibility of customers' environments, helping them to make the most of the investments that they had already made in their security capabilities is what attracted him to the company.



"The opportunity for growth here is striking," he told us. "I am excited to join ForeScout at this critical stage. My contribution will emphasise new and existing alliance partnerships that complement our strengths.”

 

ForeScout's CEO, Michael DeCesare also commented on the appointment. Welcoming Abreu to the ForeScout family, DeCesare stated, "Pedro will be responsible for advancing ForeScout’s corporate strategy and ensuring that we build our business processes for scale. He will also spearhead initiatives involving future ForeScout investments and strategy.”



CounterACT is ForeScout’s flagship product for continuous monitoring and mitigation. Making use of next-generation Network Access Control (NAC) technology, the CounterACT platform provides real-time visibility to users, devices, including BYOD devices, systems and applications and allows IT organisations to centrally apply granular policies to understand their true security posture and to automatically respond to a wide variety of security issues. Powered by ControlFabric technology, the platform also enables network, security and management solutions to dynamically exchange information, which, in turn, allows enterprises to respond to issues more effectively and make better use of their existing security investments.
