Wellesley, MA & Helsinki, FI – SSH Communications Security, known the world over as the inventors of the SSH protocol, announced today that it has appointed Jeff DeLisio to head its business development functions in the Americas. Mr. DeLisio brings more than 20 years of network security sales experience to SSH and will lead the North American launch of the company’s newest product. He recently rejoined SSH after having previously served as the company’s Head of Sales for the Americas.
“The addition of Jeff to our team will help us tremendously as we launch our next generation of products,” said Matthew McKenna, Head of Sales and Marketing. “Jeff was responsible for building out the company’s current customer footprint that today includes over 3,000 customers and half of the Fortune 10. In this role Jeff will be working with key accounts and initial launch sites – and we are seeing a lot of excitement and interest around this product.”
The company plans to introduce the first of their next generation products at this year’s RSA Conference (February 27 – March 2, 2012 at booth #357) and will be holding briefings for industry analysts and key prospects during the week.
“A rapidly growing threat landscape means that enterprises can no longer be complacent about their data-in-transit security,” said DeLisio. “Many organizations are relying on solutions that were designed to protect against threats that were commonplace 5, 10 or 20 years ago. In some cases there simply isn’t a solution available even though a clear problem exists. Working with some of our key customers' security teams we are developing a platform that will dramatically improve information security while delivering real cost savings.”
