SecureAuth Announces Advisory Board of Distinguished Security & Technology Experts to Help Shape Future of Identity Security

We are excited to announce the launch of the SecureAuth Advisory Board and the appointment of five senior security and technology leaders who will work with the SecureAuth executive team and board of directors to help shape SecureAuth’s strategy and the future of identity security. 

The acceleration of digital transformation initiatives during COVID-19 has shined a spotlight on the need for better identity security solutions across every industry. In creating this new SecureAuth Advisory Board, we’re adding decades of executive leadership in enterprise security, identity and technology to our team.

Each advisor brings an incredible depth of knowledge and experience that will provide immediate impact to both SecureAuth and our valued customers, while signaling our commitment to building the future of identity security with the brightest minds and best talent.

The newly formed Board of Advisors includes seasoned professionals with deep roots in enterprise security and technology, including: 

“With the shift to cloud applications and infrastructure, and the move to remote work as a result of Covid-19, enterprises today have placed Identity at the center of a perimeter-less security model,” said Alissa Abdullah, SVP & Deputy CSO, Mastercard Operations & Technology. “This makes the work SecureAuth is doing to secure identities and make identity more convenient for users even more important. I’m excited to be a part of this new Advisory Board to help shape how we keep adversaries at bay in the future while making security and identity more accessible to users.” 

“Remote work and other issues associated with the pandemic are challenging enterprises to manage who has access to which applications in order to protect valuable infrastructure and resources,” said Tomas Maldonado, NFL’s Chief Information Security Officer. “Identity security, zero trust and the types of solutions that Secureuth provides, have become critical to business enablement and digital transformation in this new paradigm. I’m excited to be a part of the SecureAuth Advisory Board to help shape how enterprises adopt these initiatives and technology in the future.” 

We’re privileged to have the opportunity to work alongside these advisors as we work to enable large, complex enterprises around the world to build the most secure and flexible authentication experience for their employees and customers.
