SAN FRANCISCO, May 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ScaleFT, the Zero Trust security software company, today announced the appointment of Ben Sabrin to a new leadership role at the company as vice president of Revenue and Strategy.
“Ben is a proven serial early-stage company sales leader who has successfully led organizations through massive growth,” said Jason Luce, co-founder and CEO at ScaleFT. “He brings incredible experience at early-stage companies disrupting the enterprise Java application market, the database market, the cloud market and more.”
Sabrin has held a series of executive sales and management leadership roles in a range of big data, cloud and open source companies in enterprise software, including H20.ai, JBoss, MongoDB, Nodesource and Rackspace.
“I had the privilege of working with Jason at Rackspace and I jumped at the chance to join his team in bringing a new security paradigm to the market with ScaleFT,” Sabrin said. “Security is nearly a $100 billion annual industry but it’s a market cluttered with complex, inelegant products that fail too often and expose customers to costly risk and mitigation. ScaleFT has a simple but proven and effective approach based on Google re-thinking security that is easy for customers to deploy and for their employees to adopt.”
Sabrin started his technology career as a recruiter at Pencom Systems. He joined JBoss and quickly advanced to vice president sales, North America, before the open source application server company was acquired by Red Hat. He founded and led eHire before joining MongoDB, the open source NoSQL company, to serve as vice president Americas. He next served as head of sales and business development in the ObjectRocket division and chief enterprise strategist for the enterprise business at Rackspace. After that he led sales for big data analytics company H20.ai and NodeSource, the server-side Node.js software company. Sabrin holds a B.S. in Marketing from Indiana University.
ScaleFT helps companies protect sensitive resources through a Zero Trust platform that makes intelligent, context-aware access decisions in real time. Founded by startup veterans from The Apache Software Foundation, Cloudkick, and Rackspace, the company is venture-backed with offices in San Francisco and Austin.
