SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Forescout Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: FSCT), the leader in device visibility and control, today announced the appointment of Wahab Yusoff to Regional Vice President for Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ).

Steve Redman, Chief Revenue Officer, Forescout said, “Wahab is an immensely experienced sales leader, growing sales and investment in Asia for the last few years at Forescout. Having served on a number of boards for large enterprises in Singapore, he has a deep understanding of organizations’ security risks, and I am thrilled to have him lead us in the APJ region.”
Wahab continued, “I am excited to take on this new role and passionate about extending my experience and knowledge across the region. Forescout has a wealth of talent with seasoned networking and security experts who understand how to guide our customers and partners through these new IT challenges.”
Wahab is a senior executive with over 30 years’ experience across the IT and cybersecurity industry focused on establishing regional sales operations and growth.
