Skybox Security has hired Tom Gleason as its vice president of North America sales and field operations.

Gleason brings to Skybox Security more than 30 years’ experience leading teams in IT infrastructure, cloud and monitoring software. The vendor provides cybersecurity management products and services.

Gleason previously was with Riverbed Technology. He was the area vice president for western and central North American sales. He helped the company enhance productivity, improving all sales and financial metrics, and increasing subscription licensing by 60%.

Before Riverbed, Gleason was vice president of sales at Motorola Solutions.


Skybox Security’s Tom Gleason

“I joined this company because of the significant value proposition Skybox Security has to offer enterprise customers,” he said. “Skybox Security takes the guesswork out of security by providing full, context-informed network visibility. Our customers are able to see which of their vulnerabilities and assets are most exposed to potential threats, enabling them to create more targeted and effective remediation strategies. The enterprise demand for these insights couldn’t be clearer and I’m excited to lead the North American go-to-market strategy.”

Next-Generation Go to Market

Gleason will develop the next generation of Skybox Security’s go-to-market model. He will use his extensive experience across the field, channel sales and vertical markets to increase Skybox Security’s position within the region.

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

“Tom is joining at a moment of great opportunity for Skybox,” said Rob Rosiello, Skybox Security’s executive vice president of worldwide sales and field operations. “Cybersecurity is more complex than ever. Leaders are under pressure to secure their organizations at unprecedented scale and speed. These circumstances have created significant pain points for organizations that Skybox is best positioned to solve. Tom’s consultative approach to working with enterprise customers, combined with his background building and managing high-growth sales organizations, make him the perfect fit for the role.”

Earlier this year, SkyBox Security integrated with Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) to expand vulnerability management for enterprises that deploy workloads across hybrid and cloud network environments.
