10 Cybersecurity Companies Making Moves: July 2023
We’re taking a look at some of the cybersecurity companies that launched new products and partner programs, unveiled acquisitions or made key executive hires in July.
Island, a startup that offers a security-focused web browser for businesses, said in July it has hired cybersecurity industry veteran Steve Tchejeyan (pictured) to serve as its president. Tchejeyan had most recently been CRO at Forescout Technologies. Earlier in his career, he worked in sales leadership and executive roles at security vendors including Symantec, Blue Coat Systems and Intel Security.
The appointment followed Island’s hire earlier this year of another executive from Forescout, Keith Weatherford, as its vice president of worldwide channel sales.
Island, which was founded by two ex-Symantec executives, has raised more than $250 million in funding and has been valued at $1.3 billion by its investors.
