Philippe Dumont Appointed to SkyRecon Supervisory Board

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - November 12, 2007) - SkyRecon Systems, the premier provider of unified endpoint security solutions, announces that Philippe Dumont, General Manager of Marketing & Communications for Microsoft EMEA (Europe, the Middle East, and Africa), has been added to the SkyRecon Supervisory Board of Directors.

Philippe Dumont joined Microsoft in 1988 as the Spreadsheet Product Manager in Microsoft France, and then became the Product Marketing Manager on DOS, Windows and Windows NT. In 1992 he joined Symantec, where he created the marketing department to take on the corporate sales team in France, where he doubled the revenue for three consecutive years.

"Philippe is a superb addition to our Board of Directors, and brings with him a wealth of experience in the market, which will be a huge benefit to us as we continue to expand our business globally," said SkyRecon CEO Ravy Truchot. "Our team looks forward to working with him, and learning from him."

SkyRecon's StormShield endpoint protection client is the first in the industry to provide an integrated single-agent solution with real-time defenses designed to protect an organization's endpoints and the critical business data that resides on them from the multitude of intranet and internet threats.

In 1996, Dumont was appointed Managing Director for Symantec France, which he grew to the second largest revenue contributor following the US. From 1998 to 2000, he served as Managing Director for Symantec West Europe, then as Sr. Director of Global Operations and Customer Satisfaction, creating the global Customer Satisfaction Program.

Dumont re-joined Microsoft in September 2002 as General Manager, EMEA Business Operations. In 2004, he was appointed as GM, EMEA Marketing and Communications, where he is responsible for defining and orchestrating Marketing and Communications strategies for Microsoft in EMEA.

Dumont graduated from HEC Business School in 1988 with a Major in Marketing. During his free time, he enjoys skiing, tennis, golf and spending time traveling with his wife and two sons.

StormShield's multiple protection layers address every aspect of endpoint and data protection: intrusion prevention, application control, device control, and content encryption, all through a single agent and single management console.
