FireMon Welcomes New President & CEO, Satin H. Mirchandani

Security management vendor forges ahead with new CEO at the helm

OVERLAND PARK, KS and DALLAS, TX – September 27, 2016 – FireMon, the market leader in security management and risk assessment software, has today announced the appointment of Satin H. Mirchandani as President & CEO. Satin will lead the company as it continues to grow faster than the market and increase the already substantial enterprise customer list. 

“FireMon created the network security policy management market and continues to lead through innovation and a strong focus on customer satisfaction. The talent, professionalism, and discipline I’ve seen the team demonstrate are instrumental to the ability to execute quickly and accurately.  It’s no surprise FireMon is experiencing double-digit growth in all regions and renewal rates greater than 90%.  These numbers highlight both the current momentum and the future opportunity,” said Mirchandani.

Mirchandani’s goals for global growth are focused on creating the footprint and resources of a local company in each major market, as well as a continued commitment to FireMon’s channel partners. “My first enterprise software experience was with a company that focused on the IT channel (VARs, distributors) – I learned the unique value of a trusted advisor who is a domain expert,” Mirchandani continued. “For many customers—and, in security specifically —the channel is simply irreplaceable.  FireMon is fortunate to have partnered with the best of the best.  As such, I intend to continue investing heavily in the education, enablement and growth of our channel partners.”

An industry veteran, Mirchandani credits his days with McKinsey and Company for giving him a passion for “identifying and solving complex problems that are mission critical to customers,” which is a perfect fit for FireMon’s mission and focus.  His track record as founder, CEO and technology executive includes leading MessageOne and MD Buyline to successful exits, serving as VP of Global Services at Dell, and driving the IPO process for pcOrder.com.
