SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/27/14 -- Cyphort, an innovative provider of Advanced Threat Defense solutions, today announced the addition of Paul McNulty to its executive team as vice president of Operations and Alliances. It also announced the expansion of Cyphort Labs, its global Threat Intelligence Center, with the addition of two new malware analysts, and expanded engineering and sales teams. This wave of corporate expansion reflects the strong momentum Cyphort is experiencing due to its well designed, no-nonsense approach to Advanced Threat Defense -- an approach that has landed the company a slew of awards and accolades since its February 2014 launch, most recently being named as one of "12 hot security start-ups you need to know" by Network World.

"We put the same kind of effort into expanding our team as we have into building the Cyphort Advanced Threat Defense platform, and the results have been equally amazing," said Manoj Leelanivas, CEO, Cyphort. "Having worked with Paul in the past, I can't think of anyone more capable to successfully lead the equally strategic functions of Operations, Support and Alliances. Not to mention our new researchers and sales people are rock stars in their own right. With this expansion, we can further our already turbo-charged momentum to deliver solutions that enable security teams to quickly and accurately detect advanced attacks while expediting effective mitigation."

Joining Cyphort after an exceptionally successful tenure at Juniper Networks, Paul is widely recognized as a highly strategic, effective leader and manager capable of tackling a diverse set of responsibilities. His ascent within Juniper included stints as Vice President of Juniper's Advanced Technologies Group, Vice President of Service Automation, and Vice President of Global Support, where he was responsible for supporting $800 million in revenue and managed a staff of 500 employees and external support resources. As Vice President of Customer Service, APAC, he grew the service revenues from $12 to $80 million over the four years. Prior to Juniper, Paul started UUNET Asia Pacific and was its Director of Network Engineering during a critical growth period of the Internet in the region.

Marion Marschalek and McEnroe Navaraj join Cyphort's elite team of security researchers at Cyphort Labs. In March 2013, Marion won the prestigious Female Reverse Engineering Challenge where ability to easily structure and highly technical content won her international acclaim. McEnroe joins Cyphort from Bromium, where his penetration testing acumen led to his peers publicly praising him as "Understated, brilliant, humble, principled and hyper-productive."

Their role at Cyphort will be to develop advanced technologies that power the Cyphort Threat Protection Platform, deliver accurate and timely threat intelligence help customers detect and mitigate attacks, and monitor threat development globally. Since Cyphort's formal launch in February 2014, Cyphort Labs has discovered three new Zero-Day attacks in the wild, the most recent of which was discovered by Marion earlier this month.

To meet increasing demand for it's solution, Cyphort is expanding engineering footprint by adding an R&D facility in Bengaluru, India. Additionally, Cyphort also expanded its US sales team, deepening its presence on the East coast as well as South Central US.

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehe...

17th Cloud Expo, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits. The Modern Enterprise model is presented as a newer way to think of enterprise IT, which takes a more holistic approach to embracing modern technologies.
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
There's no doubt that the Internet of Things is driving the next wave of innovation. Google has spent billions over the past few months vacuuming up companies that specialize in smart appliances and machine learning. Already, Philips light bulbs, Audi automobiles, and Samsung washers and dryers can communicate with and be controlled from mobile devices. To take advantage of the opportunities the Internet of Things brings to your business, you'll want to start preparing now.
