Global network protection vendor Claroty has appointed 20 year marketing and communications industry veteran Jennifer Leggio as chief marketing officer.

Claroty says Leggio joins its executive team to help scale the company’s customer acquisition, branding, and communications, “as it continues to experience rapid revenue growth and strong demand for its operational technology (OT) security solutions around the world”.

Leggio joins Claroty from Flashpoint where, as Chief Marketing Officer, she built and managed the company’s marketing team and operations.

Leggio was also Vice President of Corporate Marketing & Communications at Sourcefire, which was acquired by Cisco for UDS$2.7b, and was previously Director of Strategic Communications at Fortinet “during a high-growth time that led to its successful initial public offering (IPO)”.

“Jennifer’s extensive background and proven success in senior leadership roles at some of the cybersecurity industry’s most successful organisations will be an incredible asset as Claroty continues to experience hyper growth,” said Thorsten Freitag, Claroty CEO.

“Demand for OT security solutions continues to be very strong as industrial enterprises face increasingly complex cyber threats, and Jennifer will play an instrumental role in increasing both awareness and demand for Claroty solutions across our target audiences.”

“Claroty has all of the indicators of a company poised for extraordinary success: innovative technology and a skilled development team, a high-growth market opportunity, a strong and experienced leadership team, and an impressive portfolio of global blue-chip customers,” said Leggio.

“I am incredibly proud and excited to be part of Claroty’s mission to protect the world’s critical infrastructures against increasingly frequent and complex cyberattacks, and bring that protection to even more organisations worldwide.”
