Irace to Head Fidelis Threat Research, Providing Real Time Protection against Advanced Threats
WALTHAM, MA – April 18, 2012 – Fidelis Security Systems, the market leader in network visibility, analysis, and control solutions, today announced the creation of Fidelis Insight™ Threat Intelligence Services combined with the promotion of former Director of Research & Services, Will Irace, to Vice President of Threat Research.
The new Fidelis Insight services are an extension of the Irace-led Fidelis Threat Research Team, and will help enterprise security personnel enhance their security posture through more effective use of their Fidelis XPS™ network security solutions. The new offerings provide customers with access to the Direct Response service, as well as automated Dynamic Threat Intelligence feeds.
“Fidelis understands that securing the modern enterprise and combating advanced threats requires a deft combination of people, process, and technology,” said Irace. “When attackers exhibit sophistication, defenders must as well. Even as our product and internally-authored policy improves, ‘push-button security’ is not an option for today’s sensitive targets. With Fidelis Insight, we are pleased to offer real-time intelligence and threat response services to help our customers face those threats with confidence.”
Irace has previously served in a variety of roles over the course of his years with the company, including Senior Solutions Architect and Director or Research & Services.
"My career-long mission has always been about leading teams of smart people who do interesting work,” said Irace. “Never has my team been smarter, nor the work more interesting. And it's a good thing, because we face an immense challenge. Online adversaries are sophisticated, better equipped, and more effectively coordinated than ever. I am thrilled to be named Vice President of Threat Research; we’re redoubling our efforts to help our customers and the security community meet this challenge."
