Advisory Services And Asset Operation  

Optiv was very good at provisioning technologies when Lynch started and could validate specific products by thinking through if they would work in a customer’s environment. This resulted in higher cost for the sale but ensured that assets would be a great fit for a customer from a technical perspective, according to Lynch.

Lynch has pushed Optiv to do more around advisory services, strategy and architecture and has launched programs focused on helping CISOs through the one-year, two-year, or three-year journey to build a zero-trust architecture. Optiv leverages the threat hunting expertise on its managed detection and response (MDR) platform as well as its red team and blue team capabilities to achieve this, he said.

Optiv’s long-term vision is to increasingly operate more and more assets on behalf of its customers, Lynch said. It won’t be the largest customers that leverage this since an organization like JPMorgan Chase has a security engineering team that’s twice the size of Optiv’s, but rather customers in spaces like critical infrastructure that have security teams of perhaps just five, six or seven people, according to Lynch.

“Every business has an ethos beyond its processes, capabilities, services, headcount, and talent, and ours is about greatness,” Lynch said. ”Not our aspiration for it, but our aspiration is to really secure the greatness that our clients seek to do every single day in what they choose to do for their living.”
