Ericom Software Appoints Leading Executives to Newly Formed Industry Advisory Board to Support Growth in Zero Trust Security
Cybersecurity Leader Dr. Chase Cunningham to Chair Group
New York, NY (February 24, 2021) – Ericom Software, a leader in cloud cybersecurity solutions for secure web and application access, today announced the formation of its Industry Advisory Board (IAB) and welcomed a group of leading business executives to advise and collaborate with Ericom's management team on various growth initiatives, business development activities, and corporate strategy.
Zero Trust security has become the strategic cybersecurity approach CISOs and CIOs are adopting to protect the digital transformation projects underpinning the growth of their organizations, making the timing right to bring together a talented group of leaders with start-up, industry, and security practitioner experience to support Ericom's continued market momentum. Demand for Ericom's security solutions, like Remote Browser Isolation (RBI), has accelerated as cybersecurity investments shift toward innovative, cloud-delivered Zero Trust security controls designed to protect the distributed work environments that have become the norm as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dr. Chase Cunningham, Ericom's Chief Strategy Officer and former Forrester Analyst focused on Zero Trust security, will chair Ericom's Industry Advisory Board. Regarding the formation of the Ericom IAB, Chase commented "We are excited and honored to be able to work with this experienced and diverse group of professionals who believe in Ericom's Zero Trust security mission. The group's mandate will be to support Ericom's solution development and global go-to-market efforts as the company continues to quickly scale."
