London, UK  – December 6th, 2021 – Netskope, the SASE leader, today announced the appointment of Julien Fournier as VP Southern Europe. Alain Karioty – who was previously responsible for Iberia and Latin America – is promoted to VP LATAM.

Julien Fournier joins Netskope after a decade with Palo Alto Networks, where he was responsible for regional sales in France. He will sit within the Go-To-Market team, headed by Netskope President Dave Peranich, and work with local teams in France, Spain, Italy and Israel to support customers and prospects in securing their digital transformation journeys.

Julien Fournier is an established sales leader with proven competencies in establishing and driving successful business strategies. He brings to Netskope a strong understanding of customer expectations for security and networking technologies, cloud and Zero Trust, as well as the local channel partner ecosystem, and the overall Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) opportunity. 

“Netskope has the most advanced SASE portfolio in the market today and from that technical strength we have a huge opportunity in Europe and the Middle East,” said Dave Peranich, President, Go-To-Market. “Realising that potential requires the right team in place and Julien has demonstrable experience, excellent relationships, and a genuine enthusiasm for what Netskope can offer customers. I am very pleased to have him join the team and head up our ambitious plans for southern Europe.”

“We are currently at a point of huge transition within network and security architectures, with the vast majority of European CIOs and CISOs undertaking transformation projects in the coming year.” said Julien Fournier. “I am very excited to be in a position to support those organisations to make cloud security smarter as they assess and implement SASE and Zero Trust to underpin their growth plans and ambitions in the digital age. I have watched Netskope’s journey from the outside, admiring the vision and team, and I am very happy to now be personally onboard and able to bring Netskope’s innovation to customers.”

Netskope recently attracted $300 million in new investment, achieving a post-money valuation of $7.5 billion on top of rapid growth in what leading analysts estimate to be a $30 billion total addressable market by 2024. Netskope’s NewEdge Security Private Cloud is now the world’s largest, highest-performing security private cloud.
