Symplified Expands Executive Leadership Team with Three New Appointments

Symplified®, the Cloud Identity Company, today announced three new executives to its leadership team. Effective immediately, Brian Doheny is senior vice president of worldwide field operations; Vasa Dasan is vice president of engineering; and Randy Streu is vice president of business development. The appointments are a key part of Symplified’s efforts to continue its momentum, growth and market leadership in identity and access (IAM) management.

“More than 50 percent of IAM deployments will be hybrid by 2015, integrating cloud-based applications with enterprise-side software, according to Gartner analysts1,” said Symplified CEO Shayne Higdon. “Symplified is poised to be at the forefront of that market, enabling organizations to manage user identities and access across any device or application, whether on-premises or in the cloud. Brian, Vasa and Randy round out our leadership team with the experience to help establish Symplified as the primary way businesses, employees, partners, and customers access Web and mobile apps, simply and securely, anywhere in the world.”

Dasan joined Symplified from Wayin, a mobile and web engagement platform founded by Scott McNealy.
