Securonix Hires Dave Colesante as COO to Boost Cloud SIEM Offering

ADDISON, Texas – Oct 24, 2018 – Securonix, the market leader in next-generation security information and event management (SIEM) and user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA), today announced that cloud cybersecurity veteran Dave Colesante has joined the company as Chief Operating Officer. Colesante previously was the CTO, and then COO, of AlertLogic where he was instrumental in helping the company become a pioneer in the cloud security market and delivering the security-as-a-service model for applications in cloud and hybrid environments.

“I couldn’t be more excited to welcome Dave to the Securonix team. His proven track record to drive growth and create shareholder value will be vital to Securonix at this time of tremendous growth,” said Securonix CEO Sachin Nayyar. “We are blazing the trail for cloud security with the most complete SIEM-as-a-service offering. I strongly believe that Dave’s experience in security and cloud services will help us drive and extend our leadership in the cloud SIEM market.”

Effectively immediately, Securonix’s cloud offering, business operations, and finance functions will report to Colesante. He will also closely work with the existing executive team on customer success, product management, and product delivery.

“Securonix has great momentum and the potential to disrupt the legacy SIEM market with a solution that is truly visionary and cloud-ready,” said Dave Colesante, COO Securonix. “I am extremely excited to help lead the company to its next phase of growth and market leadership.”

Organizations adopting a “cloud-first” strategy realize tremendous benefits by moving their IT and data center resources to cloud and SaaS providers, but adequately securing these critical resources from insider attacks, data breaches, and other cybersecurity incidents continues to be a major challenge. Colesante’s experience with a cloud-based SIEM solution that served customers large and small will further fast track the growth Securonix is seeing in its Securonix Cloud offerings.
