John Sorensen, a 35-year information technology industry veteran and former Symantec executive, has been appointed vice president of global sales strategy and execution at Forcepoint.

He will report to Forcepoint Chief Revenue Officer Kevin Isaac and be responsible for helping drive the cybersecurity firm's growth targets through an enterprise-class customer experience, the company said Tuesday.

Sorensen will also help promote the Converged Security Platform to security professionals who seek cloud-based technology to safeguard IT systems from cyber threats.
