MCLEAN, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Taia Global (www.taiaglobal.com), maker of REDACT™ cyber software, the leading provider of Industrial Espionage countermeasure cyber software and intelligence services, announces the appointment of cyber security veteran Joe L’Italien as Chief Sales Officer. In this role, Mr. L’Italien is responsible for expanding sales growth and leading the global Taia Global sales team.
Mr. L’Italien’s leadership has led to great success in scaling start up and established sales and marketing teams to significant revenue growth over his 20 year career. Examples of this include DesktopStandard which was acquired by Microsoft and BeyondTrust which was acquired by Symark. L’Italien’s experience also includes an IPO with TCP/IP pioneer company NetManage.
Joe provides a “lead from the front” style that consistently identifies ways to strengthen and successfully build customer value, revenue and professional and integration services. He was responsible for driving sales growth into large organizations including a large number of financial institutions, defense and healthcare organizations, as well as the government.
“We are very excited for Joe to join the team. With the introduction of the REDACT™ cybersecurity software product we expect to grow the business significantly in 2015 and beyond! So he is a perfect fit as we continue to accelerate sales growth,” said Jeffrey Carr, Taia Global Founder and President. “Joe’s sales leadership experience from startup to major market success is a great asset for Taia Global.”
For organizations that develop novel technologies or products that are highly competitive or regulated, chances are excellent that they are on an Industrial Espionage hacker team’s radar (assuming that they haven’t already been breached). However, the EaaS team is just the middleman in this operation. Organizations need to know who they might be selling your data to. REDACT™’s Deep IP Intelligence is your network’s early warning system. REDACT™ identifies at-risk digital assets by mining the world's R&D to offset the potential IP theft that costs US organizations over $300 billion per year.
“It’s great to bring my experience to the Taia Global team where we help US organizations address the $300 billion annual IP theft threat,” said Mr. L’Italien. “Not only do we provide an early warning scenario for such potential IP attacks, but we also help reduce the attack vectors that can be used to target our clients. It’s a compelling, unique approach that prevents future attacks.”
