Tufin Taps Seasoned Industry Veterans to Lead Sales Efforts

Security Policy Management Leader Taps Ed Greene and Stephan Mesguich to Lead the Sales Organizations of the Americas and Europe

RAMAT GAN, ISRAEL--(Marketwire - Sep 12, 2012) -  Tufin Technologies, the market-leading provider of Security Policy Management solutions, today announced Stephan Mesguich as vice president of Sales for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), and Ed Greene as vice president of Sales, the Americas. These two accomplished leaders bring more than 40 years of combined sales and operations experience to Tufin, furthering its ability to capitalize on the increased global demand for firewall management solutions. Tufin's ongoing ability to attract top notch talent aligns with its strong and consistent growth, high customer satisfaction ratings, and steady stream of accolades including its fourth, consecutive five-star review from SC Magazine, recognition from Deloitte as the fastest growing technology company in Israel and making Network Computing UK's shortlist for "Company of the Year."

"Our customers don't have the time to manage one vendor for PCI DSS compliance and another for firewall change management -- they want strategic partners that can support their ability to be successful across their entire scope of duties," said Ed Greene. "Tufin really gets this -- the focus here is on adding value, and we do that by delivering superior technology, service and support. This commitment to excellence is what has fueled the company's growth, and I look forward to contributing to its future success."

As vice president of Sales for the Americas, Ed Greene brings to Tufin more than 20 years of building and leading sales organizations in the IT Security industry. Prior to Tufin, Ed was vice president of Sales at MarkMonitor, an enterprise brand protection company recently acquired by Thomson Reuters. While at MarkMonitor, Ed grew sales by 300%. Prior to MarkMonitor, Ed was vice president of Global Sales at Skybox Security, a provider of automated IT risk management solutions. Prior to Skybox, he held senior sales positions at Zone Labs (acquired by Check Point Software), Entercept Technologies (acquired by McAfee), Lucent, and Digital Equipment Corporation. Ed holds a B.S. in Business Management from New York University.

Stephan Mesguich was tapped to lead the Company's sales efforts in EMEA after dramatically expanding Tufin's market share as its Regional Manager for Southern Europe. Prior to Tufin, Stephan was vice president, Southern Europe and Benelux for Verdasys, a data security company. Prior to Verdasys, Stephan was vice president of Sales and Co-Founder for Bee Ware, a leading web application security company, where he helped raise $11 million in funding, grew the company to more than 500 customers and successfully established Bee Ware in five countries. Prior to Bee Ware, Stephan joined Check Point as one of the Company's first employees in EMEA and spent more than eight years in various sales and management positions. Stephan holds a B.A in Economics and International Business from ISEG Business School in Paris, France.
