Amit Yoran has been appointed as chairman and CEO of Tenable Network Security, effective 3 January 2017.
Yoran joins Tenable after serving as president of RSA. His appointment comes at a time of accelerated growth and international expansion. Yoran serves as a board member and adviser to a number of security startups.
“Having someone with the stature of Amit join Tenable is testament not only to what we've been doing in the past as a business, but also how we are developing and moving forwards both as a company and the innovation we bring technically to the market. I listened to Amit present at RSA last year as he explained his vision of what needs to change in the industry to improve the cyber-security posture and it very much aligns with my own view,” said Gavin Millard, EMEA technical director of Tenable Network Security.
