Dasient Names Harnish Patel Vice President Of Sales

Harnish comes to Dasient from McAfee

Sunnyvale, Calif. – April 27, 2011 – Dasient Inc., the leading provider of anti-malware solutions for websites and ad networks, today announced that Harnish Patel has joined the company as its new Vice President of Sales. In this role, Patel is responsible for the worldwide sales of Dasient’s product services and will work closely with Dasient’s CEO, Paul Stich, and co-founders Neil Daswani, Shariq Rizvi and Ameet Ranadive to continue driving the company’s growth and extend the reach of its anti-malware products into new markets.

Patel joins Dasient from McAfee Inc., the world’s largest security-focused technology company, where he held Vice President positions in sales, marketing and business development. With more than 25 years experience in executive-level sales, marketing strategies and relationship management, Patel has built and managed world-class sales and marketing teams in both the U.S. and U.K. at technology giants IBM and Sun Microsystems. He also led similar teams at Secure Computing (acquired by McAfee in 2008), SurfControl, Nuance and Quadriga.

“With its suite of web anti-malware solutions and industry leading research, Dasient is tackling one of the most critical, fastest growing threats on the Internet today – malware,” said Patel. “Clearly, there is a market need. Dasient’s research indicates that the number of websites and advertisements infected with malware has nearly doubled in the past year. But there are still many businesses that have not fully recognized the threat or what they can do about it. I’m excited about the opportunity to help them solve that problem."

“We are delighted to have Harnish on the team. His global experience and security network will enable Dasient to continue its rapid growth,” said Paul Stich, CEO of Dasient. “While the growth of web malware continues to be a great concern for the industry, it also represents an opportunity, both for Dasient and for its customers, to gain an edge by putting a stop to it. Harnish and his team will help enterprises to recognize that there is an answer to this problem.”

With the addition of Patel, Dasient continues its aggressive growth path. In January, Dasient announced a new round of funding by Google Ventures that is being used to expand its research and development team that has developed the market's leading web malware detection solution. In 2010, Dasient made record sales of its industry-leading solutions in the financial, media, and e-commerce verticals. Dasient also achieved triple-digit customer growth and doubled its team size as it expanded to new headquarters in Sunnyvale, Calif.
