January 6, 2013

This is a correction of the announcement from 09:45 07.01.2013 CET. Reason for the correction: Factual inaccuracy - Nivis has NOT been acquired by IBM, it was Internet Security Systems that was acquired in 2006.

Cryptzone, the European IT security and threat mitigation specialist, today announced the arrival of Yves Delongie as its new Vice President Europe. Yves brings to this role 20 years' technical and commercial experience in ICT innovation and an extremely successful history of leading sales, business development, marketing, support and product teams across EMEA.

With previous roles in a wide range of ICT vendors, including Nivis, Amplidata, TrustAlert, DigitalPersona, Internet Security Systems (acquired by IBM in 2006) and Vasco Data Security, he has consistently demonstrated his skills in opening up new markets across international boundaries, delivering revenue growth and ultimately increasing shareholder value.

After successfully graduating in applied economics/computer science and business administration, Yves started his career as a C++ and OS programmer for real-time embedded systems, quickly moving into project management then sales and eventually managing overall field operations and P&L. His solid technical grounding, combined with his innate flair for business and operational excellence provides the perfect combination of skills to equip him in the delivery of Cryptzone's projected revenue targets for 2013.

Yves is driven by his passion for technology and envisages Cryptzone's data-centric security solutions becoming truly relevant in a world that is moving away from the concept of safe perimeter toward the cloud and end-users consume information using personal rather than corporate devices. He is looking forward to making an ambitious impact in the market. He comments "I plan to make Cryptzone one of the most relevant security companies of the decade and I am convinced we can achieve this."

Einar Lindquist, CEO at Cryptzone, delighted by the appointment, says "Yves proved himself a highly exceptional candidate for this role. He comes highly commended by industry experts. I am confident he is the right man to lead the region and achieve our 2013 revenue goals."
