“Organizations around the globe are finding themselves in the same predicament – they’ve built security infrastructures that have become massively complex, that are expensive to manage, and that perpetuate the breach epidemic,” said Dan Burns, Optiv chief executive officer. “Our global clients are looking to us to improve the consistency and effectiveness of their security programs. Optiv is uniquely positioned to help these organizations optimize their security programs and minimize costs.

He currently serves as an advisory board member for Glasswall Solutions Limited, where he advises the U.K.-based document security company on its international go-to-market strategy. He has helped numerous companies, including Vodafone and NTT Com Security (formerly Integralis), build or restructure vital business units. He has also held various executive and sales leadership positions at companies such as Verisign and NetIQ.
“Increasingly, Optiv’s partners and global clients are looking for support in Europe, the second largest cyber security market in the world,” Church said. “As the most respected pure play security provider in North America, Optiv’s international expansion meets a very real and growing need to help European-based national and multinational companies make their enterprise security programs stronger, simpler and less costly. I am looking forward to leading Optiv’s provision of transformative services to companies in Europe and working locally with their unparalleled technology partner community.”

The gap narrowed, however, as the peleton started to chase with 30 kilometers to go,
