Sundra joined Forescout in 2010 and “has been instrumental in driving cross-functional efforts between sales, product and engineering to deliver on customers’ technical needs,” the company said in a news release. “She has also been instrumental in building a world-class global system engineering and enablement team across Forescout’s commercial and federal business, as well as transforming the customer training and certification program.”

“Since starting as CEO earlier this year, I have been impressed with Ellen’s dedication and commitment to our customers, partners and team,” said Wael Mohamed, chief executive officer of Forescout. “She consistently puts our customers first and has been integral to the company’s growth over the last 11 years. Ellen builds strong, effective teams, and we are excited to see her take on an expanded leadership role that unites our customers’ experience.”

Sundra was interviewed by e.Republic, Techwire’s parent company, at a California Technology Forum in September 2017, while a regional vice president with Forescout. She spoke about integrating a public-sector network into the cloud.

“Throughout my 11 years at Forescout, I have shared in the success of many customers’ journeys,” Sundra said in the company news release about her elevation. “Working together, we have increased visibility and protection for their networks and helped countless customers achieve even the most stringent compliance objectives. From the first conversation with our sales team through product deployment, technical support and professional services, we are uniting our efforts to simplify and accelerate the customers’ path to success. I am humbled to represent the voice of our customers on Forescout’s leadership team.”

Sundra began her career in technology as an engineer with CompuServe in 1997, then was with iPass as a senior sales engineer for 11 years before joining Forescout in March 2010. She received her bachelor’s degree in computer science from Rollins College.
