Attivo Networks,†the award-winning leader in deception for cybersecurity threat detection, named Chris Roberts, one of the world’s foremost experts on counter threat intelligence within the cybersecurity industry, to the new role of Chief Security Strategist. Previously a member of the Attivo Networks Advisory Board, Roberts will use his more than 20 years’ security experience to further develop and define strategy and processes for the company’s government and industry customers on issues related to cybersecurity strategy, policy, risk threat assessments, and incident response.

He will also be a key driver of strategy and vision around the Attivo Networks deception portfolio in areas where he has deep expertise including adversary and vulnerability research and market education.

“Adding Chris Roberts to our executive team further strengthens our ability to stay on the leading edge of countering cyber-adversaries globally,” said Tushar Kothari, CEO of Attivo Networks. “We are delighted to have Chris join Attivo in a full-time capacity. His unique methods of addressing the evolving threat landscape and his experience with all information systems will make him indispensable to our customers and the rapidly emerging deception market.”

Previously, Roberts was Chief Security Architect for Acalvio Technologies, where he drove deception technology innovation, directing a portfolio of services designed to improve the physical and digital security posture of clients.

“As an advisor to Attivo for the past seven months, I have had the opportunity to witness first-hand how the company is cementing its position as the market and technology leader in deception-based threat detection,” said Roberts. “I am looking forward to taking on a larger role at the company, and as Chief Security Strategist, will apply innovative approaches to countering cybersecurity threats through the use of deception.”
