Intelligent cybersecurity provider makes appointments


ISC8 Inc the provider of intelligent cybersecurity solutions, has named three new executives; Scott Millis as chief security strategy officer; Kelly Anderson as vice president of sales for North America; and Gev Pestonji, vice president of sales for Asia Pacific.

Scott Millis, formerly the chief IT strategy officer at McAfee, brings a deep understanding of all aspects of IT – cybersecurity, application development, networking, computers, governance and data centers; across diverse sectors including manufacturing, distribution, large enterprises and professional services.

“Having spent considerable time analysing and vetting ISC8’s technology with industry veterans and CSOs, the feedback was undisputable: the company’s products are 100% geared to address the latest cybersecurity threats facing today’s enterprises,” said Millis. “The company has well over a dozen trials lined up over the course of the year; the names of the companies involved would be of envy to anyone in the cybersecurity space. ISC8 is a company that I can help grow to be a marquee name in the industry.”

Kelly Anderson’s most recent position at Equifax, one of the three largest credit reporting agencies, revolved around using Big Data analytics for telco, pay TV, social networking and mobile applications. He brings more than twenty years of industry experience and a strong pedigree for developing and executing sales and marketing strategies for technology-driven companies.

“ISC8’s value proposition is clear, compelling, and timely given the resurgence of sophisticated malware and Advanced Persistent Threats attacking large enterprise and service provider networks,” said Anderson. “In two weeks of account engagements, the feedback has been consistent - When can we have a product to trial?’ Not often does one come into a company and have the ability to talk to Fortune 50 corporations and receive this type of resounding feedback. The portfolio is a perfect match to current and emerging market needs.”

Gev Pestonji joins ISC8 as the vice president of sales to manage the anticipated growth in the Asia Pacific region. Pestonji’s experience includes over twenty years in sales throughout the region with technology leaders such as Cisco, Nortel, and Siemens.

“ISC8 has built up a strong pipeline of opportunities globally,” said Gev. “I am encouraged about the prospects that ISC8 is working to close over the coming months and look forward to contributing to the company’s global growth.”

“The addition of these key executives signals our commitment to growth in cybersecurity technologies and markets,” said Bill Joll, president and CEO of ISC8. “Their combined experience increases our in-depth understanding of cybersecurity technology platforms and experience across global markets that will provide a strategic advantage in our expansion efforts globally for all three ISC8 cybersecurity products: Cyber adAPT, a signature-less  Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) and malware detection solution; Cyber NetFalcon®, for Big Data security analytics; and Cyber NetControl, providing content control for service providers and enterprises. I am pleased to have found such exceptional talent that will help ISC8 deliver on the significant pipeline of opportunities that has been built up across all three products.”
