Tenable has announced that Amit Yoran, president of RSA, will be our new Chairman and CEO, effective January 3, 2017. We are honored to welcome one of the security industry’s most esteemed leaders and visionaries to our team.
Amit brings extraordinarily rich experience in security, from government service to his leadership at several highly successful and innovative cybersecurity companies. At RSA, a key billion-dollar security company, Amit has been responsible for strategic direction and operational excellence. Amit came to RSA through the acquisition of NetWitness, a high-growth network forensics company he founded and led as CEO. Prior to NetWitness, he was the founding director of the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team program (US-CERT) in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Amit also founded Riptech (acquired by Symantec in 2002), one of the first managed security service providers (MSSPs).
We are excited about the opportunity to begin 2017 under Amit’s leadership, as we work with you, our customers, to address your cybersecurity challenges—from evolving technologies and ever-increasing attacks, to the need to better understand how security threats translate to business risks.
