Reading, UK — September 28, 2016 — ThreatQuotient™, a trusted platform for threat intelligence operations, today announced that cybersecurity visionary, Martin Roesch, joined the company’s Board of Directors. Between creating the Snort Intrusion Prevention and Detection System, founding Sourcefire, and currently serving as vice president and chief architect of Cisco’s Security Business Group, Roesch’s leadership experience in the cybersecurity market is unparalleled. He has received a host of awards for his technology innovation and vision, and is a highly sought after speaker and presenter. As a member of the board, Roesch will be instrumental in the company’s continued growth and innovation.

“Marty’s success in identifying emerging technologies to improve cybersecurity, combined with his business acumen to help companies successfully navigate from early stages to high growth, is a tremendous asset to our company,” said John Czupak, CEO and President of ThreatQuotient. “I welcome the opportunity to work with Marty and look forward to his participation in driving ThreatQuotient’s success.”

ThreatQuotient believes that the foundation of intelligence-driven security is people, and has built ThreatQ, an open and extensible threat intelligence platform (TIP) to enable analysts and defenders to be more effective and efficient. Staying true to that mantra, the company continually seeks out industry leaders, like Roesch, to build upon its already impressive early stage momentum.

“The importance of threat intelligence is paramount to a successful cyber defense, yet organisations often fall short when it comes to turning threat data into actionable intelligence,” explained Roesch. “ThreatQuotient has created a unique and operational approach and technology for solving this real world problem of digesting and utilising this data; making security operations more efficient and effective. I am excited to be a part of the company’s continued growth and innovation.”

Roesch joins existing Board of Directors members John Czupak; Peter Barris, Managing General Partner, NEA; Harry Weller, General Partner, NEA; Steven Chen, Principal, Blue Venture Investors; Aaron Higbee, Co-Founder and CTO, PhishMe; and Wayne Chiang, Chief Architect and Co-Founder, ThreatQuotient.
