Threat X Adds Experienced Sales Leadership to Further Accelerate Customer Success and Growth


SaaS-Based Web Application Firewall Provider Appoints Mark Rotolo as
EVP of Global Sales and Justin Levitas as Director of Sales

Threat X, the leading provider of SaaS-based web application firewall
(WAF) solutions, today announced two executive appointments designed to
ensure customer success and support the company for its next phase of
growth. Mark Rotolo will spearhead Threat X's U.S. and international
expansion as EVP of global sales and partnerships and Justin Levitas
will oversee the company's customer success and sales strategy as
director of sales. Working together with the broader Threat X leadership
team, Rotolo and Levitas will identify new opportunities to help global
enterprises quickly detect and thwart the most advanced, high-impact
threats without sacrificing significant time or resources.

The Threat X attacker-centric platform combines threat and application
profiling, and attacker fingerprinting to build a holistic risk score
based on behavior, automating the precise detection and neutralization
of DDoS, bot, zero-day and other advanced threats. The technology
greatly reduces false positives and analysis burdens, providing
organizations with security assurance while simultaneously freeing
security teams to focus on top strategic priorities. As the threat
landscape continues to evolve, the Threat X solution is uniquely suited
to help companies protect the growing attack surface with confidence.

With the appointment of Rotolo and Levitas, Threat X is strengthening
its global sales and customer success team, and further accelerating its
notable growth. Prior to joining Threat X, Rotolo served as vice
president of sales for ProtectWise and also held sales leadership
positions at Shape Security, Palo Alto Networks and Redline
Networks/Juniper. Levitas comes to Threat X from Dashlane, where he led
a global inside sales and operations team and previously held sales
leadership positions at BetterCloud. Reporting directly to Threat X
founder and CEO, Bret Settle, the new hires will help more organizations
comprehensively and accurately protect their web application
environments using the Threat X platform.

"It's critical in today's dynamic threat and
application environment that enterprises are able to rapidly identify
and intercept any and all web application attacks, and Threat X is on a
mission to make this a possibility for all organizations. With the
addition of Mark and Justin to our team, we're ideally positioned to
capitalize on our strong growth and introduce even more organizations
across the globe to the power of our platform. Both have a proven track
record as sales leaders, extensive experience in building industry
partnerships and their deep security expertise will be invaluable to our
customers as we further grow the business."
