ID Agent Founder and CEO Kevin Lancaster departed the company nearly two years after the cybersecurity startup was acquired by IT service management vendor Kaseya.
Lancaster founded Bowie, Md.-based ID Agent in 2016 to provide dark web monitoring, phishing simulation and security awareness training to MSP and IT department customers. The company added 1,500 channel partners in just two years and was purchased by Miami-based Kaseya in May 2019, with Lancaster continuing to lead ID Agent as an independent business unit of Kaseya after the acquisition.
Following the deal, Lancaster also became Kaseya’s head of security solutions, which involved spending time with the company’s product and development teams as well as emerging technology vendors to pursue new security partnerships and capabilities. More recently, Lancaster became Kaseya’s EVP of go-to-market, where he drove cross-functional alignment and collaboration across the sales organization.
