Security Industry Veteran Joins Leader in Unified Identity Protection
BOSTON & TEL AVIV, Israel, October 26, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Silverfort, the unified identity protection company, today announced the appointment of Drew Schuil as Chief Revenue Officer. Drew has 22 years of enterprise sales experience with leading security vendors including Integris Software (now OneTrust) and Imperva.
"Drew is a proven sales leader who has helped drive several early stage security vendors into market leadership positions," said Hed Kovetz, CEO of Silverfort. "He possesses the right blend of management skills, technical expertise and security industry relationships to help Silverfort capitalize on our unique ability to unify siloed cloud and on-premises identity platforms with a Zero Trust approach."
Drew joins Silverfort from Integris Software, a privacy and security startup that was acquired by OneTrust in 2020, where he was President and COO. He previously was VP Global Product Strategy at enterprise security vendor Imperva, where he served in several executive sales positions during his 11 year tenure.
"Silverfort is addressing one of the biggest challenges for companies that are migrating identity to the cloud and need to protect multiple IAM solutions across hybrid and multi-cloud environments with unified security controls," said Drew Schuil. "The market opportunity for Silverfort is massive since virtually every organization must find a solution to this problem. I look forward to helping the company rapidly become a market leader in Identity Protection and Zero Trust."
Silverfort has created a Unified Identity Protection Platform that consolidates security controls across corporate networks and cloud environments to block identity-based attacks. Using innovative agentless and proxyless technology, Silverfort seamlessly integrates with all existing IAM solutions extending their coverage to assets that cannot otherwise be protected including homegrown/legacy applications, IT infrastructure, file systems, command-line tools, machine-to-machine access, and more. It continuously monitors all access by users and service accounts across both cloud and on-premise environments, analyzes risk in real-time using an AI-based engine, and enforces adaptive authentication and access policies.
The company has been named a Gartner ‘Cool Vendor’, 451 Research ‘FireStarter’, CNBC ‘Upstart 100’, Citi’s Most Promising Fintech Startups for 2020 in the Cybersecurity Category and Most Promising Cybersecurity Startup of the Year by CDM Magazine.
