Invincea, the market leader in the development of secure virtual containers for advanced malware threat detection, zero-day exploit prevention, and cyber threat forensic intelligence, announced that Dr. Sameer Bhalotra will join the company’s board of advisors. Dr. Bhalotra has a distinguished career of public service, most recently as the Obama White House’s Senior Director for Cybersecurity. In this role, he advised the President regarding the nation’s top priority cybersecurity initiatives to protect U.S. commerce and critical infrastructure; cybersecurity legislation; identity management; botnet mitigation; and the federal government’s cybersecurity budget. Dr. Bhalotra, who is also Chief Operating Officer of venture-funded cybersecurity firm Impermium, will lend his guidance to Invincea as the company expands to meet rapidly increasing demand for its endpoint protection technology. He joins a list of other distinguished Invincea advisory board members with backgrounds in government, financial services, health care, high tech and cyber security start-ups.
“Traditional computer defense technology is insufficient to stop today’s insidious cyber threats, which pose a major risk to the government, critical infrastructure, and our economy,” said Bhalotra. “Invincea has developed a revolutionary technology to detect and contain cyber threats, and has proven this technology against zero-day threats in the wild. I look forward to advising the company to better protect computer networks and users worldwide.”
“Sameer has a strong background in technology innovation and extensive experience driving national cybersecurity programs at the highest levels of the federal government,” said Dr. Anup Ghosh, CEO and founder of Invincea. “He is an invaluable expert on government defenses, critical infrastructure protection, and industry risk management. We are honored to have him on our board of advisors, and look forward to his guidance as we continue to expand.”
