Industry specialist joins ForeScout board of directors

ForeScout Technologies : 22 June, 2015  (Company News)
Network threat mitigation company takes FireEye CEO on to its board of directors as vice chairman
Industry specialist joins ForeScout board of directors

FireEye CEO and Chairman David DeWalt has been appointed vice chairman of ForeScout’s board of directors, bringing high level industry experience to the continuous monitoring and mitigation solutions company.

With 25 years experience in technology leadership, DeWalt has racked up skills in leadership positions at such high profile companies as McAfee, where he was President and CEO, Delta Air and Mandiant where he held board level positions. With this latest appointment, DeWalt now holds positions on the boards of directors of both FireEye and ForeScout.

Commenting on the new appointment, ForeScout's CEO, Michael DeCesare said, “I’m thrilled to welcome Dave to the ForeScout Board and to be working with him again. He’s one of the most successful high-tech CEOs and is a legend in the security industry. As our Vice Chairman, he’ll help the board and me set and achieve our growth strategy.”

“FireEye and ForeScout are longstanding partners with a shared vision for the next generation of security technologies and actionable intelligence required to address today’s evolving threat landscape,” said DeWalt. “The combination of a strong market demand, an excellent product and the previous success Mike and I have had creating enormous value for customers and investors creates a perfect opportunity for ForeScout to become a key player in our industry.”

ForeScout helps organisations reduce their security vulnerabilities with comprehensive visibility for both agent and agentless devices, increase security posture with multi-vendor orchestration and protect valuable assets with automated enforcement. This combination is critical to address the security risks associated with the Internet of Things (IoT), BYOD and the lack of integration across cybersecurity products.

“ForeScout is at a tipping point in its evolution,” said Chairman of the Board and Co-Founder, Hezy Yeshurun. “CounterACT is both proven and essential to keeping today’s cybercriminals at bay. By having Dave join our board, we now get to take our impact to the next level.”
