Cloud security firm iboss has announced the appointment of Craig Talbot as its new vice president of EMEA, as the business looks to drive growth across the region.

With previous experience in creating hyper growth within software companies, Talbot will focus on scaling the EMEA business via the channel, including value-added resellers (VAR) and managed service providers (MSSP), as well as driving growth through existing strategic partnerships.

The software veteran has previously held roles at cloud-based businesses Sitecore and Mulesoft, as well as a prior nine year tenure at Vmware, which culminated in Talbot building out and leading the firm’s EMEA NSX Network and Security business following its 2012 acquisition of Nicira.

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

As a growing number of organisations transition to cloud-based security, iboss continues to scale up operations to keep up with demand. Over the past year, the company has doubled the size of its corporate headquarters, expanded its global sales and engineering facilities and appointed three new key sales leadership roles.

“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,” Talbot said. “The availability of bandwidth and the proliferation of cloud apps and services means the need to protect the data centre 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.”
