    Lessons From The Immigrant Hustle, With Pedro Abreu, SVP at ForeScout

    Thank you so much for doing this with us! Can you tell us the story of how you grew up? I grew up in Madeira, Portugal, a sub-tropical island off the coast of Africa known for its wine and the beautiful mountains that jut out from the surrounding sea.

  • This summer we launched the internal ForeScout Women's Network to inspire, enable and guide both men and women at ForeScout. Today we kicked off the program with our first panel featuring executives from across the organization.

    Hot company in a hot space. Great product with clear differentiation from competitors. Seasoned leadership team, which seems to work really well together and getting better every day at leading a rapidly growing company. Company does really big, strategic deals in US Govt, Financial Services and Healthcare and some day will be doing the same across all verticals and geos. Exciting to be making such a difference in securing companies against the threats of bad actors.


    Wall Street still underestimating company, so share price trades at a discount to other security companies (potential for upside as CEO, CFO and CCO seem to be doing a good job getting Wall Street to better understand). Working through growing pains across sales, SDR and marketing, though have made great strides since the big pre-IPO push.

    Advice to Management

    The relatively recent increase in transparency, broader based meritocracy and respectful engagement my leadership and managers across all functions is valued & appreciated. Allow us to grow into bigger roles as the company grows. Look inside first. Keep the fast paced and demanding culture. It keeps us on our toes and presses us to excel

    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at ForeScout Technologies (Plano, TX) in March 2018.


    Fast and concise. They showed how they valued my time by responding quickly for 2nd and 3rd interviews. I talked with them on the phone first, then in a group session with many of the team leads before discussing the details with their VP.
