Security Luminaries Join Invincea Advisory Board

Renowned Cyber and National Security Executives Enlist to Advise Invincea in Its Accelerating Market Growth

FAIRFAX, VA--(Marketwired - Jun 29, 2015) - Invincea, Inc., the leader in advanced endpoint threat protection, today announced its expanded Advisory Board with internationally renowned leaders from national security and cyber defense circles. Joining the Advisory Board are Dr. Ed Amoroso, Senior Vice President and Chief Security Officer of AT&T; Rand Beers, former Acting Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and recently Deputy Assistant to the President for Homeland Security; and Lieutenant General (ret) Rhett Hernandez, former Commander of U.S. Army Cyber Command and current West Point Cyber Chair, Army Cyber Institute. These senior military, civilian, and commercial leaders are now bringing to Invincea their expertise in defending the nation and its critical infrastructures.

Most of this year's high-profile breaches can be traced to spear-phishing attacks against users in targeted organizations, which legacy security controls did not stop. The failure of traditional endpoint security technology in defending against targeted attacks is driving industry to upgrade its endpoint protection capabilities with advanced solutions like those provided by Invincea. The broad cross-section of leaders on Invincea's Advisory Board and management team show the growing recognition of Invincea's superior approach to protecting endpoints, which combines threat prevention via containerization with compromise detection and response in a single agent.

"Invincea is privileged that some of our nation's most admired cyber leaders and real-world practitioners are joining our Advisory Board as supporters and fellow change agents," said Invincea Founder and CEO Anup Ghosh. "Together with these leaders, we are dedicated to enabling secure end user computing, making game-changing security advancements for our customers. The wealth of experience and insight from these individuals will support Invincea's continued rapid growth and momentum."

At the 2015 Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit, Gartner analyst Neil MacDonald advised, "Protection should be delivered as an integrated system, not delivered as siloed offerings." [1] Only Invincea Advanced Endpoint Protection offers an integrated system of client-based sensors and controls with cloud-based analytics to contain, identify, and control the wide spectrum of threats targeting end users and their devices.

"The spate of data breaches exposing public and private sector employees' personal information could yield increasingly targeted spear-phishing salvoes limited only by attackers' imagination," noted Beers, speaking personally. "Invincea's technology and experience facing advanced attacks are the types of resources that organizations should engage to turn the tide on these threats."

"The challenge facing both civilian and defense organizations today is to stop new and previously unknown attacks while uncovering existing intrusions," Hernandez observed. "Invincea's integrated defense against advanced threats -- combining prevention, detection, and response -- can help resource-constrained security teams to prevent future intrusions and rapidly detect any compromises that already exist."

In addition to these leaders, Invincea's Advisory Board now includes Tim Belcher, co-founder of NetWitness and former CTO of RSA Security; Dr. Sameer Bhalotra, former White House Cybersecurity Executive and Founder/CEO of StackRox; Arindam Bose, SVP & Information Security Officer of BBCN Bank; Bruce Brody, former CISO of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, U.S. Department of Energy, DRS Technologies, and Cubic Global Defense; Paul Calatayud, CISO of Surescripts; Bob Gourley, co-founder of Cognitio and publisher of ThreatBrief.com; Philip Reitinger, former Deputy Under Secretary for National Protection and Programs Directorate, DHS; Craig Shumard, former CISO of CIGNA; Jonathan Trull, VP of Information Security of Optiv; and Stephen Ward, CISO of TIAA‐CREF.
