Attivo Networks Snags Ex-FireEye CTO To Accelerate Vertical Market Expansion
Staying on the topic of savvy hires, Attivo Networks scored this week when it named Tony Cole, previously global government CTO at security tech developer FireEye, as its own new CTO.
Attivo, a developer of deception-based cyber threat detection systems, looks to boost its presence in the government, financial services, and oil and gas vertical markets.
Attivo brought Cole on board to help the company differentiate its security platform from competitors in the market. His task will be similar to the job he performed at FireEye, where he oversaw strategy and played a role in shaping the company's product portfolio, and its sales and marketing strategies.
