Kevin Jones joins Virsec as its Vice President of Public Sector and Business Development.

As organizations worldwide face the growing sophistication of cyberattacks, the demand for effective solutions is skyrocketing. Advanced attack techniques that execute at runtime at the memory layer have become mainstream, and companies struggle to combat them. Virsec’s strong growth correlates with increasing board-level concerns about the financial, safety, and intellectual property impacts of evolving threat scenarios and the subsequent need to have deeper visibility into application workloads at runtime.

“2021 is a pivotal year for Virsec. The industry realizes the critical need to protect application workloads at runtime,” said Dave Furneuax, Chief Executive Officer of Virsec. “Its security platform has quickly gained a reputation for being the most resilient and effective solution to protect any application workload and environment. Organizations with some of the world’s largest and most complex operating environments are increasingly turning to Virsec, and it is because the company has the technology to deliver the utmost protection.”
