Semperis, which protects companies’ identity systems, has hired Fredrik Hornell as the new Northern European sales director.
Here he will be responsible for sales to end customers and support for channel partners in the Nordic region (Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland) and the Netherlands.
Fredrik has 25 years of experience in sales, of which 20 years have been spent in cyber security. Prior to Semperis, he worked for several US companies such as NetIQ, Verisign and Fortinet, where he worked closely with customers and partners across the Nordic, European and North American markets. He has also spent more than six years with the global Japanese telecommunications company NTT, where he led partner sales globally.
“Fredrik will be a great asset to IT security managers, who have the task of dealing with the ever-growing risks that threaten their organization’s information and data security. Fredrik has both international sales experience and a deep understanding of the complex IT security issues associated with Active Directory and how to overcome them. He will play a crucial role in spreading awareness of the important role that identity systems, such as Active Directory, play in basic IT security, ”said David Lieberman, European Sales Manager for Semperis.
Demand for Semperi’s identity protection technology continues to grow as the number of cyberattacks associated with the misuse of privileged credentials increases. Forrester Research estimates that 80% of data breaches have a connection to compromised privileged credentials. With attacks increasing in scope and complexity, IT security managers must prioritize the data and applications that matter most to their business, which attackers often try to access by exploiting identity systems. There has been a recent increase in these attacks, i.a. The SolarWinds supply chain attack and the Hafnium attack on Microsoft Exchange, both of which used Active Directory to access the systems.
To help organizations protect against attacks on their Active Directory, Semperis provided a free security assessment tool; Purple Knight helps organizations identify vulnerabilities in the configuration of their identity system. The first results show that organizations fail alarmingly and, on average, only achieve a score of 61% – a failure grade that increases the risk of systemic IT attacks.
