“There is a massive amount of growth taking place in the cloud
infrastructure security space overall, but I was drawn to CloudKnox
specifically because it’s clear the company is taking a truly unique
approach to proactively addressing the threat of over-privileged
identities and it’s working. I am very excited with CloudKnox’s
enterprise grade security platform, very robust product roadmap and
great customers. This has been validated by the phenomenal quarter
CloudKnox recently had where they closed several six figure deals and
saw a significant increase in their pipeline. I am incredibly excited to
help lead CloudKnox to its next phase of innovation tied with
