Illumio Appoints Jonathan Reiber, Former Pentagon Chief Strategy Officer for Cyber Policy, as Head of Cybersecurity Strategy

Industry veteran to lead micro-segmentation leader’s global cybersecurity initiatives as countries across Europe, Asia and the Americas develop standards for protecting data

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – June 28, 2018 – Illumio today announced the appointment of Jonathan Reiber as Head of Cybersecurity Strategy. With over 15 years experience in international security policy, Reiber will lead Illumio’s public cybersecurity policy engagements and research, as well as provide strategic market guidance to ensure Illumio continues to proactively meet customers needs with evolving cyber policies and regulations.

Reiber was most recently Senior Advisor at Technology for Global Security, a non-profit think tank and incubator dedicated to solving international security issues, and formerly Senior Fellow at Berkeley's Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity. Prior to that, he held several positions within the U.S. Department of Defense over his seven year tenure with the Obama administration. In his last position, Reiber served as Chief Strategy Officer for Cyber Policy in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, advising the Pentagon leadership and leading strategic planning and partnership initiatives across the cyber policy portfolio.

"If my experience working on cybersecurity and digital risk has taught me one thing, it is that breaches are inevitable. We all need to prepare to withstand cyberattacks," said Reiber. "Companies and countries have woken up to the risks of life in the digital age and are spending billions of dollars on cybersecurity. In the face of continued breaches and disruptions, Illumio is changing the cybersecurity landscape through micro-segmentation. It reduces your digital attack surface and seals attackers off from the wider system. The net result is increased resilience for an organization; when an intruder does eventually break into a cloud or data center, the damage is immaterial."

This appointment comes as the latest in a series of recent corporate momentum. Earlier this year, Illumio announced it achieved 300 percent annualized bookings growth for the second consecutive year. The company also opened its first APAC office in Sydney, Australia to support its expanding global customer base. Additionally, Illumio has received industry recognition as a CNBC Disruptor 50 company for the second year in a row and as one of the Best Places to Work in the Bay Area by Silicon Valley Business Journal and San Francisco Business Times.
