Strengthens HyTrust’s Ability to Mitigate Insider Threats and Improve Cloud Security for Government Organizations
PRESS RELEASE – MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – May 5, 2015 – HyTrust Inc., the Cloud Security Automation Company, today announced that Bill Aubin has been named to the critical post of VP, Federal Sales, at HyTrust. With government investment in the cloud reaching critical mass, this appointment will accelerate the company’s momentum in the federal sector, where HyTrust provides unique value to mitigate a wide range of threats to national security.
HyTrust has a strong history in this sector, addressing key requirements such as FedRAMP compliance, insider threat mitigation and cloud data security. In-Q-Tel, the investment arm of the intelligence community, is a strategic investor, and HyTrust has developed specialized technology to support the unique requirements of these US government organizations.
Mr. Aubin brings nearly two decades’ worth of experience in both public and private sector sales organizations to this key position. His expertise spans web application and database security, endpoint security, packet-capture and filter technology, and networking, and his work has involved both developing and executing sales strategies for companies targeting the federal marketplace, strategic account management, systems Integrator relationships, and building and managing successful sales teams.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Bill Aubin to the team here at HyTrust, and we believe he will help solidify and expand our footprint in this exciting market,” said Rudy Cifolelli, senior vice president of sales at HyTrust. “We all know the challenges that come with pursuing federal contracts, and Bill has built extensive experience in this specialized field. At a time when so many government agencies are moving to virtualized infrastructures and the cloud while looking to maintain the highest levels of security, we look forward to growing our presence in this very important market. As an industry veteran—and a nine-year veteran of the U.S. Air Force—Bill has the perfect set of skills to help lead our efforts in these initiatives.”
Mr. Aubin was most recently VP, Federal, at CounterTack, an endpoint threat detection and response provider. Before that he held the same position for three years at Imperva, a web application firewall, database firewall, and cloud security provider, in the process helping the company grow by over 400% between 2011 and 2012 alone and making it the company’s best performing region. Earlier, he had the same responsibilities at NIKSUN, a provider of cyber security and network monitoring solutions, and led the federal sales team as the company’s top region in 2010. Before that he spent 8 years at SecureWave/Lumension Security, which provides enterprise patch management technologies, and served as Vice President, North America Sales, before being promoted to Senior Vice President, Endpoint Security Special Business Unit.
“I’ve always been drawn to companies that set ambitious goals in every sphere—from developing innovative technologies to pursuing challenging markets—and HyTrust has exactly those characteristics,” Mr. Aubin noted. “I’m excited to join the team and help grow the company’s business in this vital market.”
