SaaS Email Encryption Leader Trustifi Appoints Peter Eastman Chief Revenue Officer

By Mark Liapustin on Mar 26 2021

LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / March 25, 2021 / Leading software-as-a-service (SaaS) email security company Trustifi announced that it has appointed long-time IT industry executive Peter Eastman as its new Chief Revenue Officer. In this position, Eastman will build Trustifi's global brand, working to expand the company's customer base, industry presence, and revenues through strategic sales initiatives. Eastman, who began his tenure in January, aims to leverage decades of marketing and sales acumen to establish Trustifi as a major force in cyber security.

In his 20 years in the high-tech sector, Eastman has delivered sustained profit gains for major companies in the IT channel. He recently spent more than a decade at Hewlett Packard Enterprise, where he led dynamic sales teams focused on the SMB and enterprise markets, SLED (state, local, and education-based government agency) sales, and commercial storage solutions. He has worked with a range of IT services organizations including Avaya, Cisco, and Siemens; in addition to a number of wireless networking and security manufacturers. In addition, Peter brings significant manufacturer-based sales experience to Trustifi, which he will leverage to enhance the company's OEM alliances. Peter holds a BA from the University of California, Los Angeles.

The current breaches at IT powerhouses such as Microsoft and SolarWinds has given new credence to the necessity of cyber security, especially when it comes to protecting email data, a major target of cyberattacks such as phishing and ransomware. In fact, research shows that BEC (business email compromise) has been at fault for up to half the nation's cybercrime losses. These numbers are only climbing since the market has shifted to dispersed, hybrid work environments, which are traditionally more challenging to secure than centralized, on-premises networks.

Trustifi is helping the IT community, and the managed service providers who serve them, rethink the way they apply cyber security. The company's unique tools perform encryption before messages pass through the recipient's gateway, housing those "sent" messages on its proprietary cloud platform-a breakthrough concept in email data protection. This gives users an expanded ability to alter or recall messages after they've been sent, since those emails remain on Trustifi's hosted storage infrastructure. Eastman will help educate the market on Trustifi's unique differentiators, which in addition to this cloud-based strategy, include an ease-of-use that fosters adoption with a minimal learning curve.

"We're fortunate to have Peter on our team, whose extensive experience in driving market penetration extends to both the SMB and enterprise segments. His skill set and proven reputation for implementing successful strategies will be an exceptional asset," said Rom Hendler, Trustifi's chief executive officer. "Cyber security continues to be an ever-advancing and critical component of the current IT landscape, and we look forward to seeing Peter accelerate Trustifi's market share toward that end."

"I'm honored to join Trustifi's group of dedicated individuals, whose vision has created a truly unique and robust cyber security solution," said Eastman. "The product's usability makes an outstanding case against competitors, since security systems can't perform if employees don't use the solution. It's my mission to drive these messages and convert them to sales, especially in sensitive markets such as healthcare, government, and finance, with a goal of proliferating more secure environments throughout these communities."
