Ihab Moawad named head of Forescout operations in Africa, Middle East and Turkey

Forescout, the leader in Enterprise of Things security, has announced the appointment of Ihab Moawad as the Regional VP of the Middle East, Turkey and Africa (META). In this role, Moawad will expand Forescout’s regional presence and investment to better serve organizations and government agencies as they navigate the challenging cybersecurity threat landscape.

“The Middle East is comprised of innovative organizations across every industry that have a plethora of new managed and unmanaged devices connecting to the network, including IoT, OT and IoMT,” said Ihab, Moawad, regional vice president, Forescout. “While these devices improve productivity and efficiency, they also increase an organization’s attack surface, leaving them more vulnerable. Forescout offers a powerful platform that solves this problem today, and I look forward to expanding our world-class team across the region to make a bigger impact with our customers and partners this year and beyond.”

“We are thrilled to have someone of Ihab’s caliber and experience join our leadership team,” said Steve Tchejeyan, Chief Revenue Officer, Forescout. “We continue to track an increase in cybersecurity threats, ransomware attacks on critical infrastructure and advanced supply chain vulnerabilities. Forescout is uniquely positioned to provide complete visibility of everything connected to the network, which is foundational to securing an organization against bad actors.”

Forescout, founded in 2000, actively defends the Enterprise of Things by identifying, segmenting and enforcing compliance of every connected thing. Forescout works by arming customers with more device intelligence, allowing the clients to accurately classify risk, detect anomalies and quickly remediate cyberthreats without disruption of critical business assets.
