Cybereason, creators of the leading Cyber Defense Platform, announced that it is expanding operations in Central Europe due to demand for its award winning software and services. The company hired veteran cybersecurity sales executive Frank Koelmel as its Vice President of Central Europe.
Koelmel is accelerating the company’s partner and customer base in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. He is looking to hire the top sales and engineering talent in the region. Cybereason’s revenues more than doubled in the region over the past 12 months.
“There is one common theme with Frank’s distinguished and successful career and that is growing successful Central Europe sales teams with an ecosystem of partners at some of the largest global enterprises in the financial services, manufacturing, healthcare, government, retail, telecommunications and other global 1000 businesses,” said Andy Phillpott, General Manager, EMEA, Cybereason.
Cybereason recently gained wide recognition as the top-ranked current offering in the recently published “The Forrester Wave™: Endpoint Detection & Response, Q1 2020.” In addition, Cybereason received a strong rating in NSS Labs Inc.’s recent Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) Test with a perfect score in the Resistance to Evasion category and several additional categories.
Koelmel joins Cybereason with 25 years of industry experience, most recently at Palo Alto Networks, where in 3+ years he built the company’s DACH organization and ecosystem with record growth. Previously, he led FireEye’s Central And Eastern European operation winning many multi-million dollar contracts with large, global customers. Previously, he established FireEye’s first, local German managed service offering.
“My goal is to continue building Cybereason’s brand in DACH and I have hit the ground running. With a full integrated cybersecurity platform and services to protect all endpoints within enterprises, and a vision to protect it all for enterprises, we’re poised to continue growing our presence in 2020,” said Koelmel.
Cybereason, creators of the leading Cyber Defense Platform, gives the advantage back to the defender through a completely new approach to cybersecurity. Cybereason offers endpoint prevention, detection and response and active monitoring. The solution delivers multi-layered endpoint prevention by leveraging signature and signatureless techniques to prevent known and unknown threats in conjunction with behavioral and deception techniques to prevent ransomware and fileless attacks.
