SAN JOSE, CA, June 27, 2018 – Virsec, a cybersecurity company delivering a radically new approach to protect against advanced attacks, today announced the expansion of its leadership team with the appointments of four highly accomplished executives. The appointments will help Virsec meet growing global demand from enterprise customers and strategic partners such as Raytheon and GHD for its patented Trusted Execution™ cybersecurity platform. Virsec is the first solution that protects applications and critical infrastructure from advanced fileless and memory-based attacks that bypass conventional security because they weaponize at runtime (WRT) instead of at the perimeter.

Chief Security Architect Frank Walsh joins Virsec from Malwarebytes where he was Vice President of Solution Architecture, driving customer-facing activities for the company’s platform, products, and technology throughout the customer lifecycle. He previously served as Director of Technical Account Management for enterprise endpoint management vendor Tanium and was Solutions Architect for Amplify.
