  • As CRO and SVP of Global Sales, Jones will manage Bomgar's direct
    sales and strategic partnerships operations worldwide.

Bomgar, a leader in identity
and access management solutions
for
privileged users, today announced that Chris Jones has joined the
company as Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Chief Revenue
Officer (CRO). In this newly created role at Bomgar, Jones will oversee
all direct sales, solution engineering, channels and alliances, and
sales enablement operations worldwide.

This year Bomgar acquired best-in-class Privileged Access Management
(PAM) technology from Lieberman Software and Avecto to create a solution
portfolio with the critical elements required of a comprehensive,
enterprise PAM product – the ability to secure privileged credentials,
sessions and endpoints against cyber threats. With Bomgar's PAM
solutions, organizations are protected against the most common pathways
exploited during cyberattacks – unsecured privileged access for insiders
and external vendors, and compromised credentials.

"I'm excited to join Bomgar at such a pivotal point in the company's
evolution," Jones said. "More enterprise organizations are recognizing
the regulatory compliance and cybersecurity best practices of securing
and managing privileged access to systems with highly sensitive data.
Bomgar's industry-unique ability to automatically discover and secure
privileged credentials, while also protecting privileged access
pathways, positions Bomgar for sustained growth in the burgeoning
Privileged Access Management market, and I look forward to leading the
company's global sales operations."

Jones has more than 25 years of experience leading consistently high
performing B2B technology sales teams. Prior to joining Bomgar, Jones
served as Senior Vice President of Sales at PROS where he led the
company's successful transition from perpetual license to software as a
service model. Previously, Jones was General Manager at Microsoft in the
Enterprise & Partner Group, and Area Vice President of Sales at EMC.

"Chris brings a wealth of B2B technology sales leadership experience to
this newly created position on our executive staff," said Matt Dircks,
CEO of Bomgar. "His proven track record in developing new distribution
channels and penetrating untapped markets will help us further drive the
adoption of our privileged identity and access management solutions to
wider audiences."
