Perimeter E-Security Expands Sales Leadership Team to Drive New Product Portfolio Expansion

Perimeter E-Security announced the expansion of its executive team with the appointment of Randal Skipper to executive vice president of global sales, effective immediately.

Skipper's appointment comes on the heels of Perimeter's appointments of former Forrester security analyst Andrew Jaquith to chief technology officer, and former McAfee executive John Viega to executive vice president of products and engineering.

Several market trends continue to drive the company's information security and messaging business including the growing sophistication of information threats, heightened compliance requirements and the consumerization of IT with growing use of smartphones and tablet devices across enterprises. 

"Perimeter finished up 2010 with strong business momentum as we sharpen our focus around our key offerings in managed security services and secure messaging," said CEO Tim Harvey.  "Randy's addition rounds out the executive leadership of our expanded product marketing and sales effort, complementing the outstanding technology leadership we've put in place behind John Viega and Andy Jaquith.  Overall we are committed to approaching Perimeter's portfolio and our customers with a top-notch team as we seek to accelerate our growth in 2011 and beyond."

Skipper is an industry veteran that brings over 20 years of successful sales leadership to his new role. He most recently served as VP of sales at MessageLabs, a provider of SaaS-based e-mail security services.  He was responsible for growing and establishing the Americas business that eventually led to a $700 million acquisition by Symantec Corporation.  Prior to MessageLabs, Skipper was VP of sales for Marimba Inc., a company he joined as a startup and grew to a successful IPO in five years and sold to BMC.  In addition, Skipper has been VP of U.S. sales for Intelligent Interactions, a company acquired by 24 by 7, and has held various sales management positions for Oracle Corporation.  He holds a bachelor's degree in business from the University of Baltimore.
