Bethesda Md. – April 27, 2017 – Fidelis Cybersecurity, the leader in next generation intrusion prevention, announces the appointment of Jason Clark, a security executive and business transformation leader with more than 20 years of experience with top-tier organizations, to its board of directors.

Jason most recently was the chief strategy officer at Optiv Inc. During his time at Optiv, Jason was instrumental in reshaping Optiv from a national security reseller to a global strategic solutions provider and managing consultancy. Before his time at Optiv, he was the chief strategy officer for Websense prior to its successful sale to Raytheon. Earlier, he served as CISO at large publicly traded organizations, including Emerson, The New York Times, EverBank and others. Jason began his security career in the U.S. Army.

Jason also currently serves as general partner at SixThirty Cyber, a business development accelerator that invests in cybersecurity-based technology companies.

“Jason brings a unique perspective on the security market from his deep business experience as a strategy leader, former CISO and now investor,” says Fidelis Cybersecurity CEO Peter George. “Jason has a broad understanding of the market needs of CISOs from a technology and integration perspective and that insight will be extremely valuable as we continue to sharpen our focus on the requirements for next generation security in the marketplace.”

Jason Clark is also the founder and chairman of the Security Advisor Alliance, a nonprofit group of security leaders from the Fortune Global 1000. The Alliance seeks to give back to the security community by donating time to help peers share strategies and insight regarding the latest cybercriminal tactics. The nonprofit also mentors new CISOs and encourages student interest in cybersecurity careers.

“CISOs are simply overwhelmed – the security tools they rely on to keep their networks secure generate too many alerts, and there is never enough staff to identify actual security incidents hiding among the noise,” says Jason Clark. “Fidelis Cybersecurity’s technology looks beyond packets to identify modern intrusions happening at the content level and presents validated alerts for immediate action. Fidelis’ unique capabilities can dramatically improve an organization’s security posture by automating analyst workflow. By joining the board of directors, I’m looking forward to playing a key role in guiding Fidelis on its continuing mission of exceeding the security needs of the most discerning enterprises and government organizations around the world.”

Forty percent of the world’s most valuable brands trust Fidelis Cybersecurity to secure their most critical assets. Fidelis Network assembles, decodes and analyzes network sessions in real time to see exploits buried deep inside content that packet-based intrusion prevention systems miss. Fidelis shrinks response time from days to minutes with automated, alert-specific endpoint validation and no-click investigation tools that show exactly what was happening on the endpoint when the alert occurred.
