Ermetic, the cloud infrastructure security company, today announced the appointment of Toby Buschini as vice president of worldwide sales. He will oversee a major global expansion of Ermetic’s sales team and open new customer support offices in Boston and the California Bay Area. Toby has 25 years of experience in security and enterprise technology sales, most recently with Fortinet and Juniper Networks.
“Traditional cloud infrastructure security solutions currently overlook the attack surface created by identities and entitlements, forcing customers to implement a patchwork of products to address all their cloud risks. Ermetic fills this void with the first holistic solution that uses an identity-first approach to secure multi-cloud environments,” said Arick Goomanovsky, Chief Business Officer of Ermetic. “Toby Buschini has the skills, experience and relationships to build a world-class sales organization. He will triple our headcount worldwide this year to help Ermetic capture a lion’s share of the cloud security market in our key geographies.”
Toby joins Ermetic from $34B cyber security vendor Fortinet, where he built and managed a team that scaled enterprise revenue and the field organization in the West by 300%. Previously, he managed a commercial sales organization at $8B networking leader Juniper Networks that doubled revenue and headcount under his leadership. He has also served in senior sales positions with FireEye and McAfee.
“Ermetic is applying an identity-first approach to cloud infrastructure security that eliminates the need for multiple point solutions,” said Toby Buschini. “Now that organizations recognize manual approaches to cloud security don’t scale, there’s a large addressable market for Ermetic’s proven technology. I’m excited to be joining a world-class team and look forward to helping accelerate the company’s growth.”
Ermetic helps prevent breaches by reducing the attack surface of cloud infrastructure and enforcing least privilege at scale in the most complex environments.
