Richard Benigno Joins XM Cyber as SVP of Global Sales

HERZLIYA, IsraelSept. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — XM Cyber, the multi-award-winning breach and attack simulation (BAS) leader, today announced the appointment of Richard Benigno as SVP of Global Sales. Benigno looks to expand the company’s global market presence, with a specific focus on the United States.

“After many years of working with major organizations on cybersecurity, it’s clear to me that a new solution is required that goes beyond existing security vendor solutions,” said Benigno. “Enterprises face a barrage of new threats every single day, so it’s just common sense that they would use a breach and attack simulation tool to protect their critical assets. I joined XM Cyber because of its innovative approach and leadership in the BAS marketplace. XM Cyber allows organizations to see their network from the eyes of the attacker, running continuously to find and show all the hidden attack vectors that can go under the radar of most protective measures.”

Benigno has more than 20 years of sales experience with CA, Stonesoft, Intel Security, Tenable and IntSights Cyber Intelligence. He has a track record of successfully recruiting, training and supporting productive sales teams, supporting channel programs, and establishing profitable partnerships with some of the world’s largest technology and security companies, including Optiv, Accenture and IBM.

“Richard is an excellent fit for XM Cyber, having worked with several of the tech industry’s top global brands,” said XM Cyber CEO Noam Erez. “We are very excited to have him on board and confident that he will help us to increase our foothold in the North American market.”
