iboss announces that May Mitchell has joined the firm as Senior Vice President of Marketing. In her new role, Mitchell will oversee sales and marketing of the company’s industry-leading Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) cloud network security services and Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) solution.
Mitchell brings to iboss over 25 years of go-to-market, partnering and marketing expertise in the cybersecurity, cloud, mobile and infrastructure solutions sectors.
She most recently served as VP of global channels, alliances and marketing for Cylance, one of the industry’s fastest-growing AI-driven endpoint protection providers that was acquired last year for $1.4 billion by BlackBerry.
In addition to the Cylance acquisition, Mitchell has been involved in over 30 successful mergers and acquisitions and 150 industry product launches over the course of her distinguished career.
With deep experience developing partnerships and joint offerings with leading global companies — including Microsoft, Cisco, Dell, RSA and IBM — Mitchell will aggressively pursue all opportunities to increase adoption of the iboss platform.
“May’s pedigree for successfully launching and driving adoption of cutting-edge new technology is unparalleled,” said iboss CEO Paul Martini.
“Organizations are increasingly looking to the cloud to combine networking functions and leading security to meet the demands of modern and dispersed workforces. As a result, iboss has been growing incredibly quickly over the last several months and May will help us take the next step in our expansion.”
“Covid-19 has expedited the timeline for a massive market of organizations to adopt and implement cloud-based solutions that protect their people and their data while reducing cost,” said Mitchell.
“I’m excited to leverage the full spectrum of field sellers, alliance and channel partners to continue driving growth for iboss and adoption of its industry-leading suite of products as customers accelerate their digital business transformation.”
iboss’s SASE platform delivers its best-in-class network security capabilities — including network firewalls, web gateway proxies and Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) — in the cloud, ensuring users are protected no matter where they go.
This eliminates the need for expensive network security appliances that cannot meet the demands of modern workforces. The company’s cloud-native technology is built on a patented containerized architecture and microservices, that ensure safety while allowing for automatic scaling to ensure fast and reliable connections.
Before joining Cylance, Mitchell served as VP of Global Field Marketing at Symantec. During her career, she has been recognized as one of CRN’s Power 100 Women in the Channel for 10 consecutive years and was also named to CyberScoop’s Top 50 Women in Cybersecurity list. She is a graduate of California State University with a degree in Computer Science.
