FULTON, Md. (PRWEB) November 19, 2018
Attila Security, a leader in endpoint security, announced today several additions to its Board of Directors. Attila's new board members are security pioneers with extensive experience in cyber defense, Defense Industrial Based supply chain management and enterprise security governance and policy. This group will provide invaluable insight and guidance as Attila continues developing advanced security solutions that protect government and enterprises from cyber attacks.
Gregg Smith, CEO, Attila Security said "From the outset, Steve Witt, co-founder of DataTribe, and I shared the same goal of building a world-class board at Attila Security. After a long process we are pleased to announce the addition of three new board members. These successful cyber security professionals share Attila's passion for simplified endpoint security. Marc has a diverse background as both an IoT specialist and a global Fortune 100 enterprise security leader. Michael was a founding member of Zscaler and a key executive for its successful IPO in 2018. Michael brings deep technical expertise in cyber threat defense and cloud security. General Simmons is a decorated Brigadier General USMC with unparalleled working experience in securing Defense Industrial Based supply chain networks."
Newly appointed to the Board of Directors are:
Michael Sutton, former Chief Information Security Officer at Zscaler. As a member of Zscaler's founding executive team, Mr. Sutton helped take Zscaler from stealth mode to a successful IPO in March 2018. At Zscaler he was responsible for internal security and headed the Office of the CISO. Prior to Zscaler, he was instrumental in building other pioneering security startups including SPI Dynamics (acquired by HP) and iDefense (acquired by VeriSign).
"With an increasingly mobile workforce, secure remote connectivity is vital. Attackers have continually shifted their focus from the corporate infrastructure to the end user, as this often represents a weak link in the security chain." said Michael Sutton, adding: "Whether users are connecting via insecure networks or from personal devices, IT departments are in the unenviable position of trying to enforce security without hampering productivity. Attila is directly tackling this challenge for enterprises and government agencies alike by delivering a portable, user-friendly solution for remote connectivity which enforces standardized security controls using strong encryption regardless of the device or network being utilized."
