Denver, CO, – August 02, 2018 – Threat X, the leading provider of SaaS-based web application firewall (WAF) solutions, today announced two executive appointments designed to ensure customer success and support the company for its next phase of growth. Mark Rotolo will spearhead Threat X’s U.S. and international expansion as EVP of global sales and partnerships and Justin Levitas will oversee the company’s customer success and sales strategy as director of sales. Working together with the broader Threat X leadership team, Rotolo and Levitas will identify new opportunities to help global enterprises quickly detect and thwart the most advanced, high-impact threats without sacrificing significant time or resources.

Reporting directly to Threat X founder and CEO, Bret Settle, the new hires will help more organizations comprehensively and accurately protect their web application environments using the Threat X platform.
