Global cyber security firm Forcepoint has appointed a veteran technology marketing executive, Matt Preschern, as its chief marketing officer.

A statement from the company said Preschern would operate out of the headquarters in Austin, Texas, and report to chief executive Matthew Moynahan.

Preschern's most recent billet was with CA Technologies as vice-president of marketing. He has also worked as CMO of HCL Technologies and Windstream Communications.

“Forcepoint has established human-centric cyber security as the new paradigm for modern enterprises and global governmental organisations,” said Moynahan.

“It is critical that executives truly understand the importance of having users and data at the centre of their design thinking in the digital transformation era.

"Matt is a proven and innovative marketing executive with diverse industry and international expertise and is the right leader to accelerate Forcepoint’s growth and category-disruptive brand position in the cyber security market.”

"The cyber security market is growing at an unprecedented rate, and Forcepoint is in a unique position to disrupt the industry,” said Preschern.

“By taking a human-centric approach, Forcepoint will challenge business leaders to think differently about security. I am keen to be part of Forcepoint’s compelling future of rapid growth and industry transformation."
