Forcepoint’s James McCarthy
McCarthy previously was the first head of sales for Tel Aviv-based tech startup Cyera.
During the last two years, the company has made significant investments to accelerate its converged security platform offering. Forcepoint delivers single-vendor, data-first secure access service edge (SASE).
McCarthy brings more than 25 years of sales leadership experience to his new role. Prior to Cyera, he held senior sales leadership roles at companies such as global communications leader BT, IBM Internet Security Systems and Digital Guardian.
Here’s our list of channel people on the move in November.
Forcepoint’s Myles Bray
Bray joined Forcepoint in May 2021 as senior vice president of EMEA sales. In that time, he was pivotal in taking to the EMEA market Forcepoint One, the company’s all-in-one cloud platform for SASE. Forcepoint One sales have consistently grown exponentially quarter-over-quarter since its first-quarter 2022 launch.
Previously, Bray held executive roles leading sales and channel strategy across EMEA for security companies such as Arqit, F5 Networks and Forescout.
In his new role, Bray is charged with enabling businesses to simplify their approach to security.
Forcepoint’s Thierry Bedos
Bedos joined Forcepoint in April 2022 as vice president for Southern Europe. During his tenure, he helped Southern Europe continue to be one of the most successful regions in EMEA. Prior to Forcepoint, he held senior sales leadership roles at Proofpoint, SAS and McAfee, where he was managing director of the company in France.
Manny Rivelo is Forcepoint‘s CEO.
“I am bullish on Forcepoint’s SASE market opportunity heading into 2023,” he said. “And we are deepening the collective strength of our global sales leadership for this exact moment in the industry. Myles, Thierry and James are outstanding leaders who have made significant contributions in their respective roles as security sales leaders for more than a decade. With this team, Forcepoint will be a force multiplier in the SASE global market in 2023 and beyond.”
Bray said demand for simplicity is driving adoption of security convergence. Eight out of 10 organizations should deploy a consolidated security service edge (SSE) platform within the next three years.
“I look forward to the strategic contributions both Thierry and James will bring to exponentially grow Forcepoint’s Data-first SASE business, and partner with customers and the channel across our key territories in the next year and beyond,” he said.
