User behavior analytics provider Gurucul has appointed Beau Hutto as vice president for federal sales to help drive the company’s government market reach.
Hutto joined Gurucul from Blue Coat Systems where he held a similar role and assisted in the security company’s year-on-year revenue and workforce growth, Gurucul said Tuesday.
Gurucul CEO Saryu Nayyar noted that Hutto’s consultative approach and previous work with the Defense Department and U.S. Air Force complement the company’s efforts in the federal market.
“Ever since Edward Snowden, federal agencies have been focused on detecting and preventing insider threats as well as cyberattacks, ” said Hutto.
“I look forward to growing our federal market share and in the process helping agencies defend against insider threats and user account compromise.”
The two-decade cybersecurity sales veteran previously held federal market sales roles at Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), where he was in charge of the NetScreen/One Secure and Parabit portfolio, and IBM‘s (NYSE: IBM) Internet Security Systems division.
Hutto graduated from Western State Colorado University with a bachelor’s degree in finance and marketing.
