Harms recently served as CFO of Socialware, a social business solutions provider. Before heading to Socialware, Harms was CFO of PSS Systems, which was acquired by IBM in 2011, of Transitive Corp., acquired by IBM in 2008, and of Counterpane, an information security services firm acquired by British Telecom in 2006.

“The momentum and growth that ForeScout has experienced over the last few years is astounding,” Harms said in a prepared statement. “IT organizations must offer greater means of access to be competitive, and ForeScout is in an ideal position to help enterprises address data leakage and compliance risks while enabling enterprise mobility. I look forward to contributing to ForeScout’s success.”
