Ivanti, the provider of the Ivanti Neurons automation platform that discovers, manages, secures, and services IT assets from cloud to edge, today announced that top C-suite leaders with expertise in security, privacy, and risk management have joined the company’s new CISO Advisory Board. This reinforces Ivanti’s commitment to protecting its customers and raising the bar for security as threat actors continue to grow in sophistication.
“We are dedicated to ensuring that our customers are working in the most secure computing environment as threats continue to evolve and emerge,” said Jeff Abbott, CEO of Ivanti. “We are excited to introduce our new CISO Advisory Board members and welcome them as they join us on our mission to enable and secure the Everywhere Workplace. Their insights will be invaluable in helping us to continue to push the boundaries of product innovation and customer satisfaction, while ensuring we are addressing the top priorities of chief information security officers around the world.”
Vendor collaboration, including information sharing of best practices, is more important than ever before. A recent McKinsey report confirmed, “In a world where everything is connected, cybersecurity must be comprehensive, adaptive, and collaborative.” The CISO Advisory Board will provide Ivanti and its customers with insights and best practices that will drive future product innovation. The board members will also advise on acquisitions and new technologies, and their collective experience overseeing global cybersecurity programs and advising large enterprises, governments, and regulators across global markets will help guide Ivanti’s ongoing strategy.
