Automatic updates to security devices ensure inbound bad traffic is blocked prior to reaching the network, and prevent data theft and corruption by stopping malware on compromised internal systems from communicating with their command and control.”

Prior to joining ThreatSTOP, Foster held a series of sales leadership roles at RedSeal and grew their sales from zero to tens of millions, and secured marquee customers in the Fortune100. Before joining RedSeal, Foster co-founded and served as Vice President of Sales for Blade Software. Foster previously held sales management roles at Internet Security Systems and NetManage.

“Over the past year, ThreatSTOP has gained traction in the marketplace, and our revenue generation programs need to scale to meet market and customer demands,” said Tom Byrnes, Founder and CEO of ThreatSTOP. “Matt is a seasoned sales leader with solid experience in driving revenue growth for technology start-ups, and the right sales executive to take us to the next level.”

The ThreatSTOP service enables routers and firewalls to deflect inbound attacks, reduces unwanted and malicious traffic, and prevents data theft and corruption. More than 500 companies trust ThreatSTOP to protect their networks today. The cloud-based security service automates policy enforcement on existing firewalls, routers and DNS servers in real time.

ThreatSTOP Assembles Industry Leaders to Discuss Approaches to Stamp Out “Malware as a Service” at RSA Conference

Tue, 02/23/2016 - 02:06

Carlsbad, CAFebruary 23, 2016ThreatSTOP, the company that makes threat intelligence actionable in real time, today announced CEO and Founder Tom Byrnes will be moderating a panel of security experts at RSA® Conference 2016 titled, “Malware as a Service: Kill the Supply Chain.” RSA Conference 2016 will be held February 29 to March 4 at Moscone Center in San Francisco. The panel will take place March 2, at 10:20 am in room 3005.

The distinguished panel will discuss how cybercriminals are essentially business people keenly focused on growing revenue, minimizing costs, innovating and reaching ever growing, larger markets the same way as legitimate businesses. Just like other executives, they have adopted highly effective cloud services and instituted sophisticated business models such as supply chains for malware and services, outsourcing, and affiliate marketing.

By sharing their knowledge and expertise, the panelists will explain how to find the weak points within criminal enterprises and help put them out of business. Unravelling the supply chain may best be accomplished by finding ways to put pressure on customers or users of their services rather than direct attacks on the criminals.

Panelists include Lance James, Chief Scientist, Flashpoint, Marcus Sachs, Chief Security Officer for the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), and Johannes Ullrich, Dean of Research for the SANS Technology Institute, responsible for the SANS Internet Storm Center (ISC)Byrnes, who served as senior leadership for three successful security startups, will moderate.

During RSA, Byrnes will also speak at:

  • AGC Partners 12th Annual West Coast Information Security and Technology Growth Conference, Westin St. Francis in San Francisco on February 29 at 10:15 am.
  • Cybertech “Securing the Internet of Things” on February 29 at 12:15 pm

ThreatSTOP will be exhibiting in booth N4714.
