Tripwire Appoints Mark Bradley as Vice President of Sales, EMEA

Tripwire Hires New Vice President of Sales to Lead the Company's Business and Sales Strategy Across Europe, the Middle East and Africa

LONDON--(Marketwire - January 12, 2011) - Tripwire, a leading global provider of IT security and compliance automation solutions, has appointed Mark Bradley as Vice President of Sales, EMEA. Bradley's appointment is an important part of Tripwire's continued international growth for 2011, as he will be responsible for overseeing the expansion of the business into new geographies throughout the EMEA region and achieving greater penetration within existing territories.

Bradley brings to his position over 20 years of experience and leadership managing international Sales and Channel organisations. Since 2000, while at Symantec and VERITAS, his roles have included Country Manager in Africa, Switzerland, Belgium and Luxembourg. Bradley also has an extensive track record of integrating acquisitions and developing new businesses across EMEA (including KVS, Altiris and MessageLabs) during his time as Senior Director, EMEA Sales at Symantec.

Bradley holds an MBA from Henley Management College and a Bachelor of Science (Engineering) Degree with Honours from Loughborough University.

Commenting on his appointment at Tripwire, Bradley says, "I am delighted to be joining the Tripwire team at a time when the company is successfully expanding its international reach and continuing to enhance its reputation as a leading provider of IT security and compliance automation solutions. With my experience of working with channel partners and direct sales teams, I hope to bring new opportunities to the company that will help strengthen Tripwire's presence throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa."

Bradley continues, "The threat of cyber attack in 2011 is very real, as are the implications for information and communications technology. The consequences of coordinated internet-attacks could be devastating for Europe's delicately poised economies. Companies that have identified the threat and reacted accordingly can avoid losses and gain definite advantages in the market. That is why it is imperative that changes in the IT infrastructure are detected and, if necessary, acted upon immediately. Using Tripwire, companies have the ability to automatically evaluate and prioritise suspicious systems events and changes in real-time which is now a fundamental requirement of a sound data security policy."

Jim Johnson, President and Chief Executive Officer at Tripwire, comments, "I am extremely pleased to welcome Mark to Tripwire and look forward to working with him as a key member of the team. The wealth of experience that Mark will bring to the company will be instrumental in our international growth as we ensure Tripwire's leadership position worldwide and continue to develop lasting customer relationships."
