Virsec appoints Brian Marlier to drive growth

Virsec has appointed technology industry veteran Brian Marlier as its Chief Revenue Officer to drive its next stage of growth. Marlier is responsible for all aspects of revenue performance and will oversee all go-to-market and revenue-generating activities.

In 2021, Virsec announced $100M in Series C funding from a marquee community of industry leaders and company builders. Marlier’s appointment comes following Virsec’s record-breaking 2021 growth.

Marlier, former Chief Executive Officer and Cofounder of Focal Point Data Risk, has more than 35 years of experience building market-leading companies and sales teams. He sold Focal Point to CDW for an undisclosed amount in 2021. He was previously at Cisco for 21 years, most notably as Senior Vice President of Global Architectures and Global Enterprise Sales.

“Combining its innovative, deterministic approach to protecting software with one of the industry’s best leadership teams, Virsec is on a fast path to disrupting the cybersecurity market. I am excited to work closely with our stellar sales team to accelerate our growth by expanding into new vertical and regional markets, and also work closely with our customers to gather their ongoing feedback and deliver excellent support to successfully protect their organizations,” Marlier said.
