LONDON, March 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- AppSense, the leading provider of user virtualisation technology, has welcomed two new marketing members to its team: Stuart Noad, Director of Marketing, and Helen Major, Channel Marketing Manager, to further drive and consolidate AppSense's leadership position in the user virtualisation market.
Stuart Noad joins AppSense from HP Information Security, where he was Marketing Director and member of the operational board.
