WSJ, 5/14/12 –
Symplified, the Cloud Identity Company, today announced the appointment of Denise Hayman as senior vice president of worldwide field operations. Hayman is a serial start-up sales executive who has helped build several very successful information security vendors including Zscaler, PGP Corp (now Symantec), Vontu and Tripwire. She joins the Symplified executive management team and reports directly to CEO Eric Olden.
Hayman assumes worldwide responsibility for direct field sales, inside sales, service delivery, customer support and field marketing. She joins Symplified following a record setting 2011 in which the company nearly tripled revenues year-over-year and increased customer adoption by 300 percent to surpass 3 million licensed users for its cloud and mobile identity and access management (IAM) service. Last year Symplified also raised an additional $20M in Series C financing led by Ignition Partners.
“Denise knows what it takes to scale successful information security companies and take advantage of fast growing markets like cloud and mobile identity. She has proven it over and over during the course of her career,” said Eric Olden, CEO and founder of Symplified.
“IT is undeniably moving to mobile and the cloud. This seismic shift is driving the need for a new approach to identity and access management, which has emerged as one of the fastest growing segments of the security market,” he added.
“Denise has the sales, management and industry expertise to hit the ground running at Symplified. Based on her track record at Zscaler, PGP Corp and Vontu, she is the ideal sales executive to extend our position as the leader in the cloud and mobile identity management market and take revenues to the next level,” he concluded.
Hayman joins Symplified from Zscaler, a leading provider of cloud information security services, where she was vice president responsible for partnerships and alliances on a global basis. Previously, she was vice president, global sales and field marketing for encryption software leader PGP Corp until its acquisition by Symantec. Prior to PGP, she was vice president of sales for data leak prevention market originator Vontu. Earlier, Hayman was senior vice president, worldwide sales and business development for IT security and compliance solutions vendor Tripwire. She started her career at Symantec. Hayman is a graduate of Boston College.
