Cloud Security Firm iboss Hires Software Vet to Boost EMEA Growth

 

Iboss, a cloud security company leveraging a purpose-built cloud architecture backed by 110 patents and over 100 Points of Presence (PoPs) globally, has hired Craig Talbot as its new Vice President of EMEA. Mr. Talbot is experienced in creating hyper growth in software companies, having previously worked at cloud-based software businesses Sitecore and Mulesoft.

“With increasing demand for iboss’ cloud security platform from mid-market and enterprise organizations in EMEA, we have appointed Craig to spearhead our efforts in growing our business and supporting customers in the region,” said Paul Martini, CEO of iboss.

At iboss, Craig Talbot will focus on scaling the EMEA business via the channel, including value-added resellers (VAR) and managed service providers (MSSP), and driving growth through existing strategic partnerships.

“iboss is driving innovation that shifts security from focusing on perimeters to one that focuses on securing users and providing them safe access to the Internet and their applications from any device, anywhere through the cloud, without appliances,” said Craig Talbot. “The availability of bandwidth and the proliferation of cloud apps and services means the need to protect the data center perimeter is shifting to protect the user. iboss solves this problem and has a huge addressable market ahead. This is the key reason for me joining and I’m very much looking forward to growing the EMEA business for iboss.”

Prior, Craig Talbot was at VMware for nine years, where his tenure culminated in building out and leading VMware’s EMEA NSX Network and Security business after the company’s 2012 acquisition of Nicira.

As organizations transition from traditional security appliances to security in the cloud, iboss continues to scale up its operations to meet the growing demand for their cloud security platform. In the past year, the company doubled the size of its corporate headquarters, and expanded its sales and engineering facilities around the globe. Last month, the company appointed three new key sales leadership roles to help further solidify its position in the market.
