Senior Director, EMEA & APJ – Insider Threat Management   |   UK/EU   |   15th January 2020

Rob Bolton joins Proofpoint as Senior Director, EMEA & APJ


Rob Bolton joins Proofpoint as a Senior Director to lead their Insider Threat Management division (formally Observeit).

68% of all organisations feel vulnerable to insider threats both deliberate and accidental. Headquartered in Boston, ObserveIT is an insider threat and monitoring solution that empowers security teams to detect insider threats, streamline the investigation processes and prevent data exfiltration. They have more than 1,700 customers in 87 countries and have raised nearly $60m predominantly from Bain Capital Ventures.

Having run an extensive pan-European search, we agreed to focus on Rob Bolton, who at the time was the General Manager, North and West Europe for Infoblox. We reached an agreement with Rob in November 2019 but the close of the search was complicated by the announcement that Proofpoint has reached an agreement to buy ObserveIT. Fortunately we have an existing relationship with Proofpoint's European leadership and working closely with Mike McKee - ObserveIT's CEO and Martin Mackay - Proofpoint's SVP EMEA, we managed to keep the search on track and Rob joined Proofpoint as Senior Director, EMEA and APJ – Insider Threat Management.
