We are currently headhunting for a fast growing, US listed, 1000 person Cyber Security vendor and I was wondering if you might be interested in an Enterprise & Government Sales role based in the UK or might be able to recommend someone to me.
The client has an office in Central London with around 20 people based in the UK but this role could be based from home. The role will involve selling into all verticals apart from the Telco Service Provider market. The client supplies 11 of the top 20 global banks, 8 of the top 12 stock exchanges and 3 of the 8 biggest North American application companies so is well positioned for growth.
The client's solution competes with products / companies like Akamai CDN, DDoS, WAF, Cisco ASA PIX FW, Citrix NetScaler, Check Point FW, Corero DDoS, F5 ADC, DDoS, WAF, Fortinet DDoS, FW, Imperva/Incapsula and Paolo Alto.
