Tufin Technologies Announces Seasoned Technology Executive Armin Schaal as Vice President of Sales for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA)

RAMAT GAN, ISRAEL--(Marketwire - February 24, 2009) - Tufin Technologies, the market leading provider of Security Lifecycle Management solutions, today announced Armin Schaal as Vice President of Sales, EMEA. A seasoned technology sales executive, Schaal brings more than 20 years of technology sales and sales operations management experience to Tufin. His proven ability to drive significant revenue growth on a pan-European level will further Tufin's ability to execute on the growing demand for its Security Lifecycle Management solutions.

"One of Tufin's most strategic assets is our team, and tapping Armin to lead our sales efforts in the EMEA region has already increased our competitive advantage," said Ruvi Kitov, CEO of Tufin Technologies. "Armin's deep knowledge of the European security market combined with his extensive contact base has already resulted in customer wins. Many European companies already have a keen understanding of the economic and productivity benefits that result from automating network security operations, and with Armin on board, we look forward to another year of phenomenal growth."

Armin previously held senior sales positions managing global enterprises and sales channels for Compuware, Commerce One and Netegrity, where he restructured the European business units, tripled revenues over a two year period and built out a channel network of more than 30 partners, resulting in the company becoming the IDM market leader in EMEA. Armin started his career as a Software Engineer with Sema Group, an Anglo-French information technology services company which was acquired by Atos Origin, a European-based corporation.

Despite a tough economic climate, Tufin has had an outstanding year. Over the past 12 months, the company has expanded its customer roster from 120 to 280 customers and channel partners from 52 to 110. Additionally, the Company capped its fourth consecutive cash-flow positive year, launched SecureChange Workflow which resulted in Tufin being recognized by analyst firm Frost & Sullivan for being a "Pioneer for Security Lifecycle Management" and landed five out of five stars in SC Magazine product review. Most recently, Tufin was announced as an SC Awards Europe finalist in the Best Security Management and Best Enterprise Security Solution categories.

"The EMEA region is a diverse and potentially unpredictable market, but Tufin's ability to improve security operations is so powerful that it transcends cultural, regional or industry barriers," said Schaal. "There is no smoke and mirrors with Tufin -- our solutions are extremely practical and deliver ROI in less than a year. I'm delighted to join the Tufin management team and look forward to accelerating our success in the global marketplace."
