SecureAuth has added Dennis Dowd, previously with CyrusOne and AppDynamics, to its leadership team as vice president of worldwide sales.

Dowd will lead SecureAuth’s direct and channel sales teams to grow revenue. SecureAuth also promoted Karan Dua to chief financial officer. Dua previously served as vice president of finance since joining SecureAuth in 2019.


SecureAuth’s Dennis Dowd

SecureAuth was built on strong identity and access innovation, and continues to take passwordless continuous authentication to the next level with Arculix,” Dowd said.

SecureAuth is well-positioned to help organizations show their value-add, Dowd said. It does so by addressing the demands of digital acceleration and a challenging digital identity threat landscape.

Driving Sales Growth

As the latest addition to the SecureAuth leadership team, Dowd brings experience in driving sales growth and supporting successful value-add solutions for channel partners for a broad range of technology solutions. Prior to SecureAuth, Dowd was CyrusOne‘s area vice president. There, he built an enterprise sales team, growing the business by 500%, and leading to the $15 billion acquisition by KKR and GIP.

As an AppDynamics, AppSense and Dell Technologies veteran, Dowd held sales and channel leadership positions driving market adoption.
