ServGate Technologies – the leading provider of integrated, modular network security platforms – today announced an expansion of global support services and the appointment of Lyle York as vice president of customer support. The new support services are to account for a significant increase worldwide in deployments of EdgeForce integrated, modular network security platforms.

York will assume leadership in rolling out several new programs in an effort to improve customer support uniformity across the North American, EMEA, APAC and Latin American markets respectively. They include:

York brings to ServGate over 15 years of senior management experience in leading customer service departments at high tech companies including Roamware. While at Roamware, a leading global provider of value-added voice and data roaming solutions, York was instrumental in managing customer support services including customised training, technical support and implementation services for customers in 25 countries worldwide. As vice president of customer service at Lightbridge/Corsair Communications and Pilot Network Services, York led global support teams and directed comprehensive customer and partner service programs.

“ServGate’s agility in keeping pace with the ever-changing threat environment has translated to rapid growth worldwide and the establishment of long-term customer and VAR relationships,” said Bruce Hendrix, president and CEO, ServGate. “Integral to sustaining this momentum is ServGate’s first-rate customer support and services, which we are pleased Lyle York will now lead.”
