Orchestria, a provider of real-time visibility and control solutions for email, Instant Messaging, the Web, and other electronic communications, today announced the appointment of Paul Johns as Vice President of Global Marketing.

Paul Johns has over 15 years of strategic marketing management of business-critical software. His experience includes bringing new products to market, developing value propositions targeted at CxO level executives and building successful marketing teams. Previous roles include senior marketing positions at Genesys Telecommunications Laboratories, Broadbase and Axiom.

Paul Johns said, “The market opportunity for Orchestria’s Active Policy Management software is immense. Since high profile incidents such as Enron and the introduction of the Turnbull Report and the Sarbanes-Oxley Corporate Responsibility Act, businesses face two conflicting trends: on one hand, the increased corporate use of e-mail, instant messaging and the Web and, on the other, the trend for stricter regulation.”

Orchestria’s premise is based on the fact that employees have the power to divulge information and make promises on the company’s behalf entirely without management visibility or control, often leading to knowing or unknowing violations of corporate policy, leaks of confidential information and breaches of financial or other industry regulation.

“CEOs, FDs and MDs are losing sleep over how to monitor and control unstructured communication,” said Paul Johns. “Orchestria provides the solution.”

Peter Malcolm, CEO of Orchestria said, “Paul’s vision and understanding of our market, combined with his ability to deliver hard-hitting results, made him an obvious candidate for this role.”

Orchestria's management team consists of experienced industry executives from market leaders such as Computer Associates, Yahoo!, British Telecom, Siemens and Accenture.

About Orchestria

Orchestria is the leading innovator in technology that provides unprecedented levels of real-time visibility and control of all electronic communications, including email, the Web and Instant Messaging. This process is known as Active Policy Management (APM).

Orchestria’s APM solution dynamically applies specific and explanatory policy at the point of interaction, which means that non-compliant events, such as information boundary breaches, document-sharing violations or inappropriate disclosures are determined and filtered as they occur.

Orchestria APM has been deployed by some of the world’s largest corporations, including Wall Street banks, which face an increased regulatory environment since the introduction of legislation such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) and SEC/NASD regulations. The technology analyses content, context and concepts; enforces corporate policy; lowers risk; eliminates unauthorized data loss and ensures regulatory compliance.

Founded in August 2000, Orchestria has offices in New York and London, and a dedicated development facility based in Taunton, UK. It is a privately held company. More details can be found at
