Members of the Advisory Board Include Cybersecurity Leaders from the US Air Force, Department of Defense, and Department of Energy
May 2, 2016
SAN MATEO, Calif., – May 2, 2016 – Exabeam, the leader in user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) for security, today announced the establishment of its Federal Advisory Board, led by established cybersecurity experts with experience in government agencies. The goal is to assist agencies within federal and state governments to improve detection of and response to modern cyber threats.
The founding members of the Exabeam Federal Advisory Board include:
- Robert Lentz, president, Cyber Security Strategies, and former CISO for the U.S. Department of Defense.
- Maj. Gen. (Ret.) John Maluda, former director of cyberspace transformation and strategy in the Office of the Secretary of the Air Force, and Chief Information Officer.
- Pete Tseronis, CEO, Dots and Bridges LLC, and former CTO for the U.S. Department of Energy.
“Exabeam’s Stateful User Tracking provides a new approach to assessing behavioral risk within the enterprise network,” said Robert Lentz, president of Cyber Security Strategies. “Since most organizations can no longer rely on a secure network perimeter, they must detect threats that build within the network itself. Exabeam enables security analysts to detect and respond to attacks before they cause data loss.”
“Cybersecurity organizations face two challenges today. First, attacks are credential-based and are difficult for security products to detect,” said Maj. Gen. John Maluda, former director of cyberspace transformation and strategy, and Chief Information Officer. “Even worse, the gap in security expertise means that many organizations cannot respond effectively. Exabeam has the potential to address both of these challenges, for government agencies as well as commercial firms.”
“As a strategic pathfinder and diligent advocator of technology’s influential power to enable mission-specific innovation , I am happy to join the Exabeam Federal Advisory Board,” said Pete Tseronis, Founder and CEO, Dots and Bridges LLC. “Advancements in machine learning and analytics are affording Exabeam to revolutionize security intelligence solutions that provide complete visibility into both breaking and long-running cyber threats.”
“The U.S. Government is a top target for cyber attacks, and that is unlikely to change,” said Seth Nylund, VP of Federal, Exabeam. “As a provider of advanced security solutions to military and civilian agencies, Exabeam welcomes these accomplished leaders to our advisory board. Their experience will help us deliver even better solutions to agencies across the government.”
