Armis has announced Desiree Lee as its new Chief Technology Officer (CTO) for Data, reporting directly to Nadir Izrael, co-founder and Global CTO at Armis. Lee is a seasoned cybersecurity, network and data storage practitioner who has over 14 years’ experience working across enterprises, financial institutions and governmental authorities. She has led network, data, platform and SaaS projects.
Prior to working at Armis, Lee worked with Guardicore, Skyport Systems, Hitachi Data Systems, Brocade and others. Most recently, Lee was Armis’ Senior Director for Solution Architecture on the east coast of the United States of America.
Data is the lifeblood of any organisation and ensuring clients can get a 360 view of all the assets in their environment with their associated risk profiles is key to managing cyber risk. “Enterprises collect vast amounts of data about devices. Today, this data is spread across disparate systems in the environment. Armis correlates and normalises this evolving dataset to provide real-time asset management and actionable security insights that incorporate device context and behaviour. In short, an enterprise’s data is better than the sum of its parts,” said Nadir Izrael, Co-Founder & Global CTO at Armis.
“Desiree’s skills and expertise in this area are second to none. She will be leading our related industry solutions and development teams to further reinforce our award-winning capabilities and to enhance our unique data capture, processing, storage and utilisation processes and systems.”
Discussing her latest appointment, Lee said “I very much look forward to bringing my experience driven by real-world customer use cases and projects to this new role, to ensure that we continue to provide even more value to our customers. The importance of data really can’t be overstated in its ability to bring clients new insights into their asset inventory and how that affects their cyber risk.”
