AUSTIN, Texas – August 8, 2022 – [redacted], the mission-driven cloud defense company that levels the playing field against attackers, today announced the appointment of Aaron Ansari as Chief Revenue Officer. In this newly created role, Aaron will lead [redacted]’s sales and marketing organizations as the company continues its rapid growth and expansion. 

The appointment is the first for new [redacted] CEO Jim Hansen, who joined the company in July to advance its mission of providing the advanced product-enabled solutions required for organizations of all sizes to defend themselves proactively against nation-state attackers.

“Aaron brings a wealth of practical knowledge from hands-on experience as a security practitioner, which gives him a deep and nuanced understanding of our customers’ needs to deliver tailored solutions,” said Jim Hansen, CEO, [redacted]. “He will help [redacted] accelerate growth globally by focusing on key areas to expand products and services that meet our clients’ specific needs, and we are excited to have him join the leadership team.” 

Aaron joins [redacted] with more than 20 years of combined experience as a sales and operational leader and security practitioner.

Aaron’s practical knowledge comes from over a decade as a security practitioner in the financial services vertical.
