Apptega, the fast-growing SaaS company that builds continuous security & compliance solutions tailored to managed security providers, today announced that Wyman Lewis, CISSP, will join its executive leadership team as chief information security officer. 

Lewis’s impressive tenure as a security and compliance executive includes leadership roles with highly successful managed security providers, including Securonix — a leader in SIEM, UEBA, security analytics and detection for the Global 2000 — and Alert Logic, among the industry’s first SaaS-enabled managed detection and response providers. He has also helped lead internal security and compliance for enterprise software companies, including eBay, where he served as business information security officer, and, most recently, Auctane, the e-commerce giant that counts more than a million active customers and brands like Stamps.com, where he served as CISO. 

“We have an incredible opportunity to transform the mindset about compliance from a check-the-box exercise to a state of continuous scoring and improvement where security is always at the forefront,” Lewis, a Certified Information Systems Security Professional, said. “I joined Apptega because, of all the companies in this space, few, if any, are as well positioned to pair a continuous approach with a partner ecosystem that’s so well equipped to execute on that vision.”  

Lewis’s hiring shows Apptega’s continued investment in injecting its business and culture with deep cybersecurity expertise. The company also recently appointed cybersecurity veterans to run its product and partner success operations. Its leadership team collectively possesses more than 80 years building world-class managed security companies. 

“Wyman’s expertise and years of experience leading security and compliance operations both in-house and on the provider side make him an incredible resource to our customers and partners, who are at the front lines of continuous compliance,” said Dave Colesante, Apptega CEO, who joined the company in November after successfully leading several high-growth cybersecurity companies.
