Jawahar Sivasankaran Joins Appgate As President And COO

SaaS, Cybersecurity Industry Veteran to Oversee Business Operations

Miami, FLAug. 2, 2021 - Appgate, the secure access company, today announced the appointment of Jawahar Sivasankaran as its new President and Chief Operating Officer (COO). Sivasankaran will lead the company’s growth strategy and oversee all go-to-market business operations, including sales, marketing, professional services and customer success. Sivasankaran will report to Appgate CEO Barry Field.

“The world is experiencing an escalating cybersecurity crisis with legacy security defenses continuing to fail, leading many forward-thinking organizations to move toward a Zero Trust strategy," said Jawahar Sivasankaran, President and COO, Appgate. "Appgate is a definitive leader in identity and context-centric solutions grounded in Zero Trust. I’m excited to be collaborating with some of the industry’s best minds in Zero Trust to drive the company’s continued growth, innovation and customer success.”

With more than 23 years of experience in cybersecurity sales and technology, Sivasankaran brings with him a wealth of relevant experience in Zero Trust and a proven track record of transformative leadership in large security businesses, with a focus on scaling SaaS-based offerings.

Prior to joining Appgate, Sivasankaran led global security sales at Splunk, provider of the Data-to-Everything Platform, with strong leadership in the security market. He drew on his experience in sales, consulting, business development and products to drive growth for the company’s security business. Before his Splunk tenure, Sivasankaran held various senior positions at security giant Cisco. There he was responsible for leading global sales and business development for the security business through managed security providers, strategic partners, and global alliances. His previous roles in Cisco security sales include serving as the global Field CTO for the $2B+ security business and leading global GTM strategy and business development. At Cisco, he also held strong consulting, product and technical leadership roles, including serving as a Distinguished Engineer.

“Market momentum is fully behind the Zero Trust movement as more organizations realize that traditional network security solutions aren’t fit for the job,” said Barry Field, CEO of Appgate. “With these strong tailwinds, the timing is ideal to bring in talent of Jawahar’s caliber to further propel Appgate’s growth. He has deep experience with SaaS transition at large security businesses, developing strategic alliances with technology partners and developing go-to-market strategies that will enable us to further capitalize on opportunities to serve a broader market. Jawahar shares our commitment to Zero Trust, and his proven background in cross-functional leadership will accelerate Appgate to the next level of success.”
