Illumio Appoints Nathaniel Gleicher, Former Director for Cybersecurity Policy for the National Security Council (NSC), as Head of Cybersecurity Strategy
SUNNYVALE, Calif. — January 13, 2016 — Illumio, the Adaptive Security Company, has appointed Nathaniel Gleicher as its new Head of Cybersecurity Strategy.
Gleicher will lead Illumio’s public cybersecurity thought leadership and policy engagements, as well as oversee the applicability of Illumio’s adaptive security technology to its customers’ cybersecurity strategies.
“We welcome Nathaniel from the White House to the Illumio team,” said Alan Cohen, Chief Commercial Officer at Illumio. “Nathaniel has the rare combination of deep expertise in cybersecurity policy and hands-on software development that makes him an invaluable resource to our customers and partners.”
Commmenting on his appointment, Gleicher said: ”One of the fundamental challenges we face in cybersecurity is that attackers are faster, more agile and more adaptable than defenders. The Illumio Adaptive Security Platform gives us the opportunity to change that—to rebalance the playing field between defenders and attackers. It empowers organizations to finally retake control of the geography within their data centers and clouds from attackers.”
Before joining Illumio from the White House, Nathaniel prosecuted domestic and international cybercrime at the U.S. Department of Justice, built custom e-commerce and database solutions and advised the South Korean government on technology policy.
Illumio delivers adaptive security for every computing environment, protecting the 80 percent of data center and cloud traffic missed by the perimeter. The company’s Adaptive Security Platform™ visualizes application traffic and delivers continuous, scalable, and dynamic policy and enforcement to every bare-metal server, VM, container, and VDI within data centers and public clouds. Using Illumio, enterprises such as Morgan Stanley, Plantronics, Salesforce, King Entertainment, NetSuite, and Creative Artists Agency have achieved secure application and cloud migration, environmental segmentation, compliance, and high-value application protection from breaches and threats with no changes to applications or infrastructure.
