MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – Cloud Data Lifecycle Security startup Dasera announced today the appointment of cybersecurity veteran David McCaw to the position of Vice President, Sales.

In today’s cloud-first environments, data sprawl is accelerating. CISOs are urgently looking to secure their entire cloud data lifecycle. Demand for Dasera’s data lifecycle security solutions is growing exponentially. McCaw is charged with growing Dasera’s sales team and building distribution to meet this growth.

Prior to joining Dasera, McCaw held senior sales positions at Palo Alto Networks, RedLock, and Contrast Security. McCaw brings over 20 years of experience for hyper-growth startups through strategic account management and driving channel partnerships.

"Dasera is rapidly expanding, and we're excited to bring in David to scale our global sales," said Ani Chaudhuri, Dasera’s CEO. "David's extensive sales and channel experience in the cybersecurity industry, coupled with his deep understanding of technology partnerships, will be invaluable as Dasera becomes the customer and partner choice for cloud data lifecycle security."

“It’s an honor and privilege to be invited to join the world-class team at Dasera,” said McCaw. “My entire career has been focused on modernizing and transforming the way people deliver applications to drive efficiency. If you're not constantly improving, you're falling behind. Data is the last frontier where people are still trying to audit or test security in, as opposed to building security and privacy into the day-to-day use of data.”
