As part of the CTO role, Grout will be look­ing to in­crease adop­tion and aware­ness of new prod­ucts to sup­port busi­ness growth. To achieve this, Grout will be en­gag­ing with cus­tomers to un­der­stand their needs and val­i­date the tech­ni­cal di­rec­tion and roadmaps of FireEye in EMEA.

Ac­cord­ing to FireEye, the re­gional in­sight will be fed back to the cor­po­rate en­gi­neer­ing and prod­uct man­age­ment teams.

Grout com­mented that: “The need has never been so high for in­no­va­tive tech­ni­cal solutions that com­bat in­creas­ingly so­phis­ti­cated cy­ber at­tacks. There­fore, it’s a great time to take on this new role and help de­velop tools to pro­tect or­gan­i­sa­tions in EMEA.”

He added that these tech­ni­cal solutions com­bined with the threat in­tel­li­gence and ex­per­tise of FireEye means the com­pany can of­fer a high level of pro­tec­tion for cus­tomers.

The need has never been so high for in­no­va­tive tech solutions that com­bat in­creas­ingly so­phis­ti­cated cy­ber at­tacks.”
