NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dyadic Security, the world leader in Software-Defined Cryptography (SDC), today announced the hiring of Tasso Mangafas as vice president of sales, North America. Mangafas is a seasoned security sales executive with a proven history of success and a 13-year industry track record in cybersecurity. As a senior leader of Dyadic’s expanding sales force, Mangafas will spearhead the expansion and growth of Dyadic’s North American footprint.
Prior to joining Dyadic, Mangafas was the vice president of sales at Braintrace as well as the vice president of sales and presales at NSFOCUS, where he focused on recruiting top talent and expanding the company’s market traction in North America. He was also the vice president of sales and field for HyTrust, a company specializing in security, compliance and control software for virtualization of information technology infrastructure. Additionally, Mangafas held the position of director of US security, enterprise accounts, at Juniper Networks, where he oversaw large US enterprise proposals in 2012 and 2013, the biggest US enterprise sales year in Juniper's history. Throughout his career, Mangafas has also accelerated the success of pioneering cybersecurity startups, including the first single sign on/two-factor authentication solution, the first virtual firewall and the first hypervisor security products, helping to establish them in the largest enterprises.
“We are thrilled to have Tasso Mangafas on board at such a pivotal time in our company history,” said Avner Mor, CEO, and co-founder of Dyadic Security. “In a digital-first world, the need to provide full-proof protection for organizational secrets has never been greater. Tasso’s impressive resume speaks for itself and we are confident that he can bring Dyadic to the next level in the North American security market and help deliver on the promise of our key management solution.”
In his new position with Dyadic, Mangafas will work directly under Avner Mor, CEO of Dyadic, as he oversees the sales and presales teams in all of North America.
“I was drawn to Dyadic Security because of its innovative use of Multiparty Computation (MPC), manifested in part by its revolutionary application in key management,” said Tasso Mangafas. “Traditionally, protecting organizational encryption keys required deployment of expensive hardware methods that do not scale. Now Dyadic has entered the market with a game-changing solution based entirely on mathematics. Mathematics created encryption and the public and private key infrastructure. And mathematics is the answer to the age-old problem of ‘who do I trust with my secrets.’ MPC is the science that answers that question, enabling encryption to become ubiquitous in the next few years.”

Merging seamlessly with existing environments and applications, Dyadic provides a solid, yet flexible, agile and scalable platform that creates a secure foundation crucial for enterprises to innovate, develop and secure today’s digital world.
