Cato Networks Exits Stealth, Snaps up Barracuda's Esposito as Channel Chief

February 9th, 2016

Cato Networks launched today its Cato Cloud “network security-as-a-service” platform, aimed at protecting distributed, cloud-centric and mobile-first companies as well as those making inroads into the Internet of things.
Cato, which was founded in January 2015, recently secured $20 million in series A funding. Founders Shlomo Kramer and Gur Shatz have deep security roots — Shatz was the CEO of cloud-based security provider Incapsula, while Kramer, who will join a keynote panel at the upcoming Channel Partners Conference & Expo, helped found Check Point and Imperva.

Glenn Esposito, formerly Barracuda’s senior vice president of sales, recently signed on to run Cato’s U.S. channel program.
