"I’m excited to help Cygnacom build on its mission to help clients leverage security to accelerate growth."

Cygnacom (, a global vanguard in cybersecurity consulting, announces the appointment of Wendy Murphy to head Cygnacom sales. Murphy brings three decades of experience creating and implementing high-impact sales strategies that produce lasting revenue growth.

In her position as senior director of sales at Cygnacom, Murphy draws from her experience working as an independent consultant to a variety of Beltway IT services companies as well as positions she held at visionaries including VariQ, Red Hat, Dell, Unisys and Meridian MZero. Throughout her career, Murphy has formed thousands of enduring relationships with customers in both the public and private sectors. She brings an array of well-honed skills to Cygnacom—channel/system integrator development, new business and market penetration, end-to-end complex enterprise solutions and more.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Wendy Murphy to the Cygnacom team,” said Peter Bello, president of Cygnacom. “She is a trusted partner in the cybersecurity industry with strong relationships and she is a great asset to our growth initiatives.”

Murphy’s IT and cybersecurity credentials are impressive. While at Dell, she more than doubled the company’s Treasury business market share in just two years and her team was named the #1 Federal Civilian Team twice in one year. Working at Red Hat, she was responsible for explosive growth in the company’s Federal Reserve Bank account and migrated the IRS to an enterprise Red Hat operating system. In addition, Murphy’s mediation skills have been enlisted by Unisys during high-level meetings with the Federal Government.

“I’m excited to help Cygnacom build on its mission to help clients leverage security to accelerate growth. I’m proud to be among industry leaders and visionaries,” said Murphy. “I look forward to growing Cygnacom’s business and exceeding the goals they set for me.”
