Da-Qian Li joins ForeScout after a decade-long tenure at Cisco, where he directly managed the sales leaders and sales team supporting their Global Enterprise Clients segment in Korea, Japan and Greater China regions.

“ForeScout’s Internet of Things (IoT) and network security technology is above-and-beyond what any other company currently offers, and will continue to evolve to meet customer needs,” said Da-Qian Li, Vice President of Sales APJ at ForeScout. “I could not be more thrilled to help expand ForeScout’s global growth in Asia.”

“2016 is off to an incredible start. Our product is exactly what the market needs to battle the security challenges that accompany the acceleration of IoT inside corporations large and small.  We continue to be able to attract the top sales talent in the security industry and are thrilled to have DQ join our team. He is exactly the leader we need to help ForeScout grow our APJ business,” said Michael DeCesare, President and CEO at ForeScout.

ForeScout helps organisations better manage their security stance with visibility into both agentless and agent devices, multi-vendor orchestration and automated security controls. This holistic approach has become necessary in a time when smart devices associated with the Internet of Things, dispersed workforces and siloed security solutions continue to introduce risk to enterprises’ growing networks.
