Dee Dee Acquista
Mandiant brought in former Proofpoint, SentinelOne and Beyond Trust channel chief Dee Dee Acquista to deepen the company’s presence beyond the large enterprise.
The Milpitas, Calif.-based cyberdefense and response vendor has tasked Acquista with getting solution providers more involved with selling Mandiant’s threat intelligence, security validation, and expertise on-demand offering. She served as channel chief of Proofpoint from 2013 to 2017.
Acquista will serve as Mandiant’s vice president of channel sales for the Americas and report into Wes Simons, senior vice president of sales for the Americas. Since Mandiant doesn’t have a global channel chief, Acquista will work with her counterparts in Europe, the Middle East and Africa and Asia-Pacific to make sure there’s alignment with how the company goes to market in all geographies.
