Mon 17 Jun 2024

Secure access service edge (SASE) company,  Netskope, has announced the appointment of longtime network and cloud security sales leader Stephan Mesguich as Senior Vice President, EMEA and LATAM.

Mesguich will manage all sales, channel, and field teams in several of Netskope’s fastest-expanding regions as customer demand increases for Netskope’s converged SASE platform, Netskope One, including its Security Service Edge (SSE) and zero trust capabilities.

“I have seen and admired how quickly Netskope has become dominant in SASE, SSE, and zero trust, and learned firsthand from some of the biggest enterprise businesses in the world why the vision and execution behind the Netskope One platform is so compelling,” said Stephan Mesguich.

Netskope announced that Mesguich brings over 30 years of cybersecurity sales experience, having led top-performing teams across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America. At Palo Alto Networks, he served as Vice President, Go-to-Market, EMEA & LATAM, for the Cortex product family, where he grew the annual recurring revenue (ARR) from £0 ($0) to over £78.8 million ($100 million) in eight years.

Previously, Mesguich was a highly regarded VP sales leader at Tufin and Verdasys, among other companies, and served as the first EMEA sales director at Check Point Software Technologies.

Executive Vice President, Worldwide Sales & Channel at Netskope, Raphaël Bousquet, saidoOrganisations are facing a massive shift in security, infrastructure, and operations as they grapple with increasingly sophisticated cyber threats and the adoption of cloud and artificial intelligence (AI).

“Netskope provides both clarity and acceleration for users making that shift, using a single, simplified platform with zero trust principles at its core. We are seeing growing demand for our Netskope One platform throughout EMEA and LATAM and I am delighted to have Stephan join the team. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience that will help us continue to deliver on our ambitious plans for these markets,” said Bousquet.

Earlier in 2024, Netskope introduced Netskope One, a unified platform encompassing the full range of Netskope capabilities designed to assist security and infrastructure and operations (I&O) teams in reducing risk, cost, and complexity. This platform is distinctive in that it delivers all its capabilities through a single engine, client, gateway, and network.
