CipherTrust Appoints New EMEA Management To Extend Messaging Security Leadership Across Europe

February 9, 2005 – CipherTrust, Inc., the leader in messaging security, today announced the appointment of David Stanley as vice president and managing director, EMEA and Edward Rowley as technical manager, EMEA. Both join the CipherTrust team to continue to develop its European growth plans through increased channel commitment and extended reach into the Small and Medium Business (SMB) market, particularly with the addition of its latest product the IronMail S-Class.

Stanley will continue to build on the success CipherTrust has achieved in the last 18 months in Europe, where CipherTrust has been recognised as the leader in the European messaging security market by IDC* and Meta Group**. With over nine years security and channel experience, Stanley was a key contributor to Sophos’s success in the European market, where he began as a direct sales representative, became UK Sales Manager in 1999 and was promoted to General Manager, UK operations in 2002. During his time at Sophos, Stanley grew UK revenues from under $10m to over $45m.

Stanley was also responsible for moving Sophos from a direct sales approach to a channel model. This experience will support CipherTrust’s 100 per cent channel strategy as it continues to recruit Value Added Resellers to expand its presence across Europe. His experience also provides an understanding of developing a channel SMB route to market for the IronMail S-class, which caters to the needs of companies with 100 to 1,000 email users. Stanley said: “I’ve always been impressed with CipherTrust’s ability to consistently deliver innovative and cutting edge technologies. These are exciting times in the security market as customers face increasing challenges from threats to their critical messaging applications, whilst complying with global and local regulations. CipherTrust is well positioned to continue to succeed in this market sector and my experience will help to contribute towards its EMEA growth targets.”

Supporting Stanley in his new role will be Edward Rowley as technical manager, EMEA. With over four years of technical experience at Sophos, Rowley provided technical expertise to the UK sales department, advised customers and helped to drive product development.

Rowley commented: “CipherTrust’s IronMail is recognised as the most comprehensive email security solution on the European market. Having won numerous awards, I am excited at having the opportunity to be advising customers of its technical capabilities as the market moves towards more integrated, policy driven, gateway solutions.”

CipherTrust president and CEO Steve Raber said: “We are pleased to welcome both David and Edward to the team. Their significant experience will strengthen CipherTrust’s European development as it increases its focus in both the channel and the SMB market. I’m confident that with David and Edward working closely with the existing team, CipherTrust will fulfil our European growth objectives as we continue to lead the European industry with our IronMail appliance.”
