International cyber security company Positive Technologies, today announced the appointment of three senior hires to support global growth.



Mark Kirwan joins the team as VP, EMEA and Steve Moscarelli as VP of Sales, Americas. Both will spearhead the company’s sales efforts in respective markets to help capitalize on the growing need for application security amongst senior security professionals trying to decrease brand and financial risk. 

Tasked with strengthening and expanding its partner programme, Monty Hossain has also been appointed to a new role as VP, OEM & Technology Alliances to develop strategic agreements which help broaden the footprint for Positive Technologies machine learning based approach. 

Speaking about these appointments, Dan Tara, Executive VP Positive Technologies said, "Our rate of growth internationally continues to accelerate, something which will be supported by these hires. Demand is being driven by the growing number of attacks on web applications, putting the companies and critical infrastructure providers which underpin our daily lives at risk from downtime, reputational damage, financial loss and action from regulators.  

“We have added senior hires to our team to help execute on the next phase of our growth, and are delighted to welcome Mark, Steve and Monty on board.”

Based in Positive Technologies’ Boston office, Steve Moscarelli has worked in network security for many years, having held senior positions with Tufin Technologies and Check Point Software. He was also President of ISSA – New England Chapter, the Information Systems Security Association.

Monty Hossain will be based in the company’s West Coast office. In recent years he has held positions at Salesforce.com, Apttus, MuleSoft and Adobe, where he specialized in developing strategic alliances designed to deliver results for end-users.
