Cyber criminals are adapting techniques to find new and more effective ways to steal customer personal and financial information and as organizations continue to struggle with the ever-increasing challenges of collecting, using, disclosing and protecting personal information, Glasswall's unique approach to eliminating the risk of targeted file-based cyber attacks. Through its patented technology, Glasswall is helping organizations to mitigate risk by ensuring that electronic files entering an organization manage 100% of risk. Glasswall goes beyond deep-level inspection, giving unprecedented visibility of file DNA, which is reconstructed at byte level, providing complete file sanitization. Information Technology and cybersecurity professionals are then fully equipped with a level of analysis, granularity and understanding of each file that no other technology offers.

"We are extremely fortunate to have Jeroen join our growing Glasswall team to expand our US operations," noted Greg Sim, CEO of Glasswall Solutions. "Jeroen's global perspective and hands-on experience in the legal and technology industries affords Glasswall with a unique opportunity to be a valuable resource for our clients by helping them to manage their vulnerabilities and ensure compliance and controls within their organizations. We are committed to bringing the highest standards of industry leadership as we grow globally."

With its unique approach to file security at a granular level, Glasswall significantly raises a company's ability to combat inbound cyber threats and manage potential risks. Glasswall not only provides complete protection against the most sophisticated, previously unseen threats, but puts security professionals back in control.

"Glasswall is quickly becoming a pioneer in the understanding and remediation of unstructured data in commonly used files, file policy control and ownership and I am excited to be joining a company on the cutting edge of technology and practical solutions," Plink said. "Its globally patented technology is truly innovative and will be a disruptor in the world of security and content management."

Formerly a lawyer with Clifford Chance, Plink co-founded a SaaS company in early 2000, which was sold to PLC. Prior to the acquisition of PLC by Thomson Reuters in 2014, Plink set up and led its US operations and grew the US business to over 250 employees. At the time of the acquisition, PLC provided practical know-how solutions as a service to 80% of the US largest law firms and over 1,000 corporations. Plink is a board member and adviser to a number of companies in the US and Europe.
