I’m very excited to announce that, in two weeks, I will be joining the team at Sophos. The company, dual headquartered in Abingdon, UK, and Burlington, MA, creates some of the best network and endpoint security products for small and medium enterprises. Sophos was one of the first companies to join StopBadware’s partner program when it launched in 2011, and I’ve had impressively positive interactions with the people there ever since. They also have one of the most prolific and entertaining blogs in the industry.
I’ll be joining Sophos’s marketing team as a Senior Product Marketing Manager, specializing in endpoint security. I have my friend and colleague Joram Borenstein to thank for helping me realize that much of the work I’ve done at StopBadware over the past few years has been product marketing, even if I didn’t have a name for it. I’m looking forward to this foray into a new field and a new organization. I’m also glad that I’ll be able to draw on the immense amount I’ve learned about the security industry during my five and a half years at StopBadware. I’ve had the chance to work with amazing people on our staff and board, at our partner companies, and throughout the industry. I’m grateful for the opportunity I was given to lead this exciting initiative, and I look forward to remaining involved as a member of the StopBadware Board of Directors.
I’ll be spending this week wrapping things up and training my replacement at StopBadware. Next week I get to take a much needed break, and then I’ll jump into my new role at Sophos.
