“We’re leveraging the ‘follow the sun’ model to be able to provide 24x7 coverage,” she says.

Up next on Huntress’s product roadmap, and due in the first quarter of 2022, is integration between the network-aware EDR solution the vendor acquired in January and the rest of the company’s portfolio.

“That will work with all of the existing workflows that we have today,” Bruzek says. “It will allow us to find malicious processes and be able to provide more information on all the different processes running on the system.”

Bruzek, who joined Huntress late last year after earlier stints at Sourcefire and Cisco, is the company’s first dedicated product chief. “There was no product team other than Kyle and Chris,” she says, referring to CEO Kyle Hanslovan and CTO Chris Bisnett, both of whom are also co-founders. Thanks in part to the $40 million funding round Huntress completed in May, there are now six product managers and 19 developers on staff.

Huntress has also added Director of Product Ed Murphy, Director of R&D Jamie Levy, Head of Threat Operations Center Max Rogers, Chief Marketing Officer Michelle Burtchell, Chief Revenue Officer Mike LaPeters, and Vice President of Partner Success Robert Statsky, among others to its leadership team in recent months.
