Picus Security opens North American headquarters in San Francisco, CA, builds out executive leadership in Business Development and brings in an industry veteran Advisory Board Member, while adding new partner integrations to their Continuous Security Enhancement platform.

“We’re coming off a strong 2018 in revenue growth – across EMEA, Asia, and LATAM - while significantly rounding out Picus Research Labs. We can now leverage up-to-date global cyber threat information and apply it to customer configurations, enhancing any current configuration of security technologies”, comments Ottavio Camponeschi, Picus VP Worldwide Sales. “Moving into North America is our next natural strategic step.”

Picus also announces that Aras “Russ” Memisyazici has joined as a Product Evangelist and Business Development expert and that they have appointed industry veteran Chris Kenworthy as their newest Advisory Board member. Russ brings experience from 17 years at Virginia Tech IT, with hands-on experience in systems and cloud architecture and operations. Chris is a 25+ year veteran in cybersecurity, was a principal at seven cybersecurity startups, nine years as McAfee SVP, and holds numerous Advisory Board positions.

Picus is also pleased to announce that Citrix and Trend Micro have joined the Picus Technical Alliance Partner program. Picus Security’s platform can now continuously test configurations in real-time from both vendors against the latest localized cyber-threats which pose the highest risks to Picus customers. Citrix and Trend Micro are welcomed additions to Picus’ current list of integrated Technical Alliance partners, including Check Point, Cisco, McAfee, Snort, F5, Fortinet, and Palo Alto.

Finally, Picus is expanding its valued relationship with Exclusive Networks, which has played a key role in Picus’ EMEA growth. “We are naturally adding Exclusive Networks’ US resources to our GTM strategies for North America and will work side-by-side in serving our expanding customer base there” commented Camponeschi.
