CrowdSec, Cybersecurity,  RiskTech, France, CrowdSec, the open-source and collaborative cybersecurity company, has announced the appointment of Courtney Austin, as its new Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) and Andreas Passmann as its new Chief Sales Officer (CSO).

Austin and Passmann will be responsible for driving growth and expansion for the company, as well as building its brand and increasing its community presence in the Americas, Europe, and across Asia-Pacific.

With more than 20 years of experience in marketing and sales, specifically in the cybersecurity industry, Courtney Austin brings a wealth of expertise to his new role as CMO of CrowdSec. Prior to joining CrowdSec,  Austin was most recently the Senior Director, Global Marketing (APJ and EMEA) at Recorded Future, as well as Senior Director, International Marketing for LexisNexis Risk Solutions.

“The adoption of open source cybersecurity has driven exceptional demand as CTI budgets have become increasingly constrained due to the global economic environment. CrowdSec is proud to support over 65,000 real users across 187 countries, flagging nearly 40 million malicious IPs, making the Internet a much safer place for all,” said Austin on his appointment.

Andreas Passmann has a proven track record of driving sales and revenue growth, with over 15 years of experience in cybersecurity and the FinTech industry. Before joining CrowdSec, Passmann was head of worldwide sales at SIS ID and held various senior sales leadership roles in cybersecurity firms including TIBCO and Bertin IT.

“We are thrilled to welcome both Courtney and Andreas to these new roles within the CrowdSec team,” said Philippe Humeau, CrowdSec CEO. “Their extensive experience in marketing and sales, coupled with their passion for cybersecurity, make them the perfect candidates to drive growth and expansion for our company. We look forward to the impact they will have on our business.”

In October 2022, CrowdSec raised $14 million in Series A funding, allowing the company to accelerate its growth and expand its reach.
