Based in Toronto, Ontario, Raymond is tasked with enabling large, publicly traded and private sector organizations to leverage a new approach to threat detection, protection and response.
Previously, Raymond was responsible for the General Management of TELUS Security Solutions, Canada's fastest growing original threat research and full security service provider. His responsibilities included overall business management, business development, thought leadership, go-to-market strategy execution, and service delivery across Eastern Canada.
"We are very excited to have Jonathan Raymond join our global team of sales leaders as he brings of breadth of knowledge regarding the local security landscape and what is top of mind with many Canadian security leaders across the public and private sectors," says Holly Whalen.
