Forcepoint has appointed two new sales executives, previously with F5 Networks and Forescout Technologies, for North America and EMEA.

Peter Brant is senior vice president of North America sales and Myles Bray is senior vice president of EMEA sales. They will be responsible for driving forward the company’s customer-first strategy.


Forcepoint’s Peter Brant

Last week, Forcepoint announced the hiring of Parag Patel as senior vice president of global channel sales.

Brant brings more than 20 years of global enterprise sales leadership and experience. Before joining Forcepoint, he was senior vice president of North America sales at F5 Networks. There, he drove the company’s transformation from an on-premises Fortune 500 hardware vendor to a security-focused, software and cloud solution provider.

Here’s our list of channel people on the move in April.

Before F5, Brant grew Fortinet’s Americas sales 500%, and 300% while at SonicWall.

“I’ve met with thousands of customers on their security priorities and only Forcepoint has the comprehensive portfolio and simplified step-by-step approach to deliver on the promise of modern security,” he said. “The opportunity is enormously exciting as we chart the next industry milestone to reshape the future of cybersecurity for the benefit of customers worldwide.”

Driving EMEA Sales


Forcepoint’s Myles Bray

Bray has spent more than 10 years in the security industry, most recently as Arqit’s chief revenue officer. Prior to Arqit, he led Forescout‘s EMEA and channel sales efforts. Under his leadership, Forescout’s European sales grew more than 300% in less than four years.

Bray has also served in EMEA sales leadership roles with F5, VCE, Impact Group Europe and EMC.

“CEOs and CISOs understand that cloud-based security has been available for years,” he said. “What’s game-changing about Forcepoint‘s approach is the laser focus on protecting the integrity of the business and its critical data across today’s hyper-distributed workforce. I’m excited to help customers and partners drive both full protection and frictionless growth in a seamless way that only Forcepoint can deliver, with our converged, cloud-native platform that brings together secure access and data security.”
