Menlo Security Names New CMO And CFO

By Amit Chowdhry • Dec 2, 2023

Browser security leader Menlo Security recently announced the appointments of industry luminaries Pejman Roshan and Naresh Bansal as Chief Marketing Officer and Chief Financial Officer, respectively.

Roshan has 25 years of experience in marketing, product management, and executive leadership roles, where he is passionate about strategic product growth and customer engagement. Before Menlo Security, Roshan led marketing and business development at high technology giants VMWare, Xilinx, Teridion, and Aruba Networks (acquired by HPE).

Bansal has over 30 years of financial leadership expertise at enterprises such as Zscaler, Actiance, and AppZen, where he successfully led IPOs, M&As, and international expansion initiatives. And as Chief Financial Officer of Menlo Security, Bansal is transforming the global finance infrastructure to drive a new level of growth for the browser security market leader.

The appointments come at a crucial time of growth for the browser security company and come on the heels of the launch of HEAT Shield and HEAT Visibility, the industry’s first suite of threat prevention capabilities designed to detect and block highly evasive threats targeting users via the web browser. Built on Menlo Security’s cloud-based Isolation Core, the innovations prevent attacks from infiltrating enterprise networks and provide rich, actionable intelligence to mitigate highly evasive threats.


“Menlo Security addresses an attack vector often ignored in security strategies yet highly sought after by sophisticated cybercriminals – the browser. I’m thrilled to be joining this team at a time when Browser Security is coming into its own. Menlo is at the forefront of Browser Security and is empowering its wide customer base, including a long list of blue-chip companies to eliminate the threat of phishing and malware and securing enterprise applications and data.”

“I’m ecstatic to be joining the incredible team at Menlo Security and have already seen the unique growth and market opportunity of the company and its product suite. I have witnessed the challenges companies face in building global finance teams that stay abreast of the changing regulatory, financial and investor changes, and I’m eager to help usher Menlo Security to the next stage of growth and expansion.”

— Naresh Bansal

“With Pejman and Naresh joining us, we now have a complete and incredibly strong executive leadership team in place at Menlo. They both possess long track records of success at SaaS and cybersecurity companies and have the skills and passion to help Menlo grow into our role as a global leader in malware protection.”
