LOS ANGELES, CA — (Marketwired) — 05/14/14 — Citing increased demand for its industry-leading security analytics platform featuring advanced threat detection and monitoring, Los Angeles-based Securonix has expanded with new North American offices in San Francisco, New Jersey, Atlanta and Washington, DC.
To support its rapid development, the company has named two industry veterans to newly created roles on Securonix’s team — David Swift, Principal Architect and Joe Riggins, Senior Solutions Architect.
“The market for IT security solutions continues to grow and expand as a number of high profile security breaches demonstrates the high cost of not protecting business-critical systems, data and applications,” said Sachin Nayyar, CEO, Securonix. “Our growth reflects high demand for Securonix products and services from Global 2000 organizations seeking to protect against hackers and the insider threats to a company’s core operations.”
Swift has more than 28 years of technology industry experience, including senior security architect, analyst and engineering roles with a broad range of technology companies including Accuvant, Perot Systems and Fortinet. He has worked with global firms to develop and improve IT security by implementing and optimizing log collection and analysis through use case driven big data security analytic solutions.
Swift’s specialties include a broad knowledge of SIEM technology, understanding the security principles needed to produce real, actionable results for companies. As a highly respected industry expert, Swift speaks on the subject matter often and has been published multiple times to offer his insight on successful log management and SIEM strategies.
Riggins brings more than seven years of Military and Law Enforcement experience as well as over 15 years of experience investigating corporate incidents and securing enterprise infrastructures. He has applied his wealth of experience to high-tech crime fighting and securing enterprise networks. Prior to Securonix, Mr. Riggins held multiple management positions at ManTech, HBGary, Guidance Software, Network Associates, and IBM Global Professional Services.
Riggins was involved in the investigation of Enterprise Corporate incidents, analysis of advanced system compromise techniques, and the development of Enterprise risk mitigation infrastructures. Riggins has performed countless 911 network intrusion investigations in the critical infrastructure and protection (CIP) space to include defense, aerospace, healthcare, telecommunications, energy, financial and government. He has served as a liaison for local and federal law enforcement investigations.
“We have attracted the highest caliber of experienced and talented professionals to help take Securonix to the next level of rapid growth,” added Nayyar. “We believe our new subject matter expert additions and offices will fuel further expansion for the rest of 2014 and beyond.”
Continuing to emerge as a standout player in the fast-growing enterprise security market, Securonix is well respected in the industry and has established innovative partnerships with HP ArcSight, Lieberman Software and other global technology providers.
