Rabaut joins Redis from cloud security company Zscaler, where he served as Senior Vice President of Customer Engagement. In his four years at the company, Rabaut was responsible for customer success, solution consulting, professional services, and renewals as part of the go-to-market leadership team that grew Zscaler from $400 million to over $2 billion in annual reoccurring revenue.
