CUPERTINO, California – May 3, 2010 – Intransa, the VideoAppliance company, has announced the addition of well-respected industry executive, Ayal Vogel, to its leadership team. As vice president of business development, Vogel will assume responsibility for the growth of Intransa’s extensive sales and technology partnerships and its continued, rapid expansion of the physical security and industrial video platform leader.
"Intransa’s products completely eliminate the risk, cost and complexity of relying on commodity IT server and storage hardware for the demanding physical security market, by offering simpler, less expensive and more reliable appliance solutions," said Vogel. "With the industry’s leading video management software vendors already working closely with Intransa, I’m looking forward to leading the business development team that made that happen while extending our industry partnerships in new ways that further benefit our customers."
Vogel joins Intransa from global security integrator Safeguards Technology where he was vice president of sales and marketing. Over the past two decades in the industry, he was president of AMID LLC and Barantec, Inc., he also held challenging EVP assignments at Indentica Holdings and Mer Inc. and held successful long-term sales assignments at Honeywell/ADI and Visonic Ltd.
"Ayal will be a tremendous asset for Intransa and I am delighted that he has joined our leadership team," said Bud Broomhead, CEO. "His industry reputation, contacts and expertise make him a great fit in this important new role for Intransa at a time when our sales continue to accelerate."
Widely deployed by customers in physical security, industrial video and related markets since introduction in mid-2009, Intransa’s VideoAppliance was recently recognized as the Best in Video Storage and Distribution by the Security Industry Association at ISC West 2010, which was the latest in a string of similar awards.
Each Intransa installer-ready appliance shrinks the complexity and cost of integrating commodity servers, storage and other hardware for demanding physical security needs. While eliminating commodity server and storage systems two-for-one with a single, video-optimized device, Intransa’s VideoAppliance includes integration with the customer’s choice of video management software from both industry leaders and up-and-coming vendors.
Vogel, based in Ridgewood, NJ, is a graduate of the University of Connecticut, with a B.S. in communications and business administration.
