Ironscales names O’Keefe as Regional Sales Director UK&I

Phishing detection and prevention expert Ironscales has named Ryan O'Keefe as Regional Sales Director UK&I.

The appointment is the first following a $6.5m Series A investment in December.

"Phishing continues to be a major threat vector for organisations, with many struggling to deflect the inventive campaigns attackers unleash," stated O'Keefe.

"From its inception the company has challenged how organisations approach phishing detection and remediation, focusing on the mailbox where the threat is most volatile, rather than just the gateway.

"As both a human and machine problem, the response also requires the powerful combination of human intelligence with machine learning."

O'Keefe bring 17 years sales experience in the technology sector, previously holding roles with Sungard Availability Services and OCSL.
