Perimeter E-Security Appoints Andrew Jaquith As Chief Technology Officer

Jaquith will spearhead Perimeter's technology strategy

MILFORD, Conn., Nov. 8, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Perimeter E-Security, the trusted market leader of information security and secure messaging services that deliver enterprise-class protection and compliance to companies of all sizes, today announced Andrew Jaquith as its new Chief Technology Officer, effectively immediately. Most recently serving as a senior analyst with Forrester Research, Andrew brings more than 20 years of IT and information security experience.

Andrew will spearhead Perimeter's technology strategy. He will be based in Perimeter's new innovation center in Boston, established earlier this year, to focus on the Company's core security and compliance technologies and further develop Perimeter's hallmark integrated user experience.

"Andrew's track record and in-depth market expertise will elevate Perimeter's technology leadership and visibility as we refine our solutions to address the evolving messaging and security needs of our medium to large enterprise customers," said Tim Harvey, CEO of Perimeter E-Security.

"Perimeter is the best kept secret in today's competitive security and compliance market," said Andrew Jaquith. "Enterprises of all sizes face increasing compliance burdens and an escalating threat environment. Over the last ten years, CIOs have had to cobble together a complex security infrastructure that isn't keeping pace. Perimeter offers cloud-based and managed services that make security simpler, with economies of scale and expertise that they can't get anywhere else. I am excited about the opportunity to drive Perimeter's vision forward and look forward to working with the management team to make that vision a reality."

At Forrester Research, Andrew led coverage for data, endpoint and mobile security and wrote 20 popular reports on data leak prevention, encryption, endpoint security, mobile security and vendor M&A. Notable recent reports include "Security in the Post-PC Era," "Apple's iPhone and iPad: Secure Enough for Business?" and "The Forrester Wave: Data Leak Prevention Suites." Prior to Forrester, he served as program manager in Yankee Group's enabling technologies enterprise group, with coverage of client security, digital identity, and web application security. Before joining Yankee Group, he co-founded @stake, a security consulting pioneer, which Symantec acquired in 2004. Previously, he held project manager and business analyst positions at Cambridge Technology Partners and FedEx.

Andrew is the co-developer of the Apache JSPWiki open source wiki software package and the author of the 2007 Addison-Wesley Professional book "Security Metrics: Replacing Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt." The book has sold more than 10,000 copies and has been praised by reviewers as "one of the best written security books ever." He holds a B.A. in Economics and Political Science from Yale University.

Recently, Perimeter E-Security was acknowledged in several prestigious rankings as one of the fastest growing security companies. Dow Jones Investment Banker cited Perimeter E-Security as one of six profitable, and fast-growing venture-backed enterprise technology companies to watch. The Company was also included in Inc. Magazine's annual Inc. 5000 for the fourth consecutive year and the Connecticut Technology Council and Marcum LLP recognized Perimeter as one of the 40 fastest growing companies in Connecticut.
