Former Mandiant and FireEye executive to lead global marketing effort for leader in advanced threat defense
Fidelis Cybersecurity, the leading provider of products and services for detecting and stopping advanced cyber attacks, today announced the appointment of Michael Evans as Chief Marketing Officer (CMO). Evans will lead the effort to expand the company’s global marketing, branding, communications and sales enablement activities. He brings 20 years of experience in building successful brands, defining new markets and launching new products that drive significant revenue growth.
“We’re thrilled to have Michael join our leadership team,” said Peter George, CEO, Fidelis Cybersecurity. “Michael is a respected security executive and transformative leader who brings an outstanding track record of success driving customer value in rapidly growing markets. His strategic insight into the global security market will be invaluable to delivering on our mission of protecting the world’s most valuable data.”
Evans’ experience in driving companies to market leadership is notable. As vice president of marketing at Mandiant, he established the company as one of the most respected brands in security, contributing to the $1 billion acquisition by FireEye. Following the acquisition, Evans served as vice president of marketing at FireEye. Prior to Mandiant, he served as vice president of marketing at Approva, a continuous controls monitoring software vendor, which competed against tech powerhouses SAP and Oracle. Evans also drove the marketing and brand refresh at Aspen Technology, where he successfully repositioned the company’s product portfolio to support the company’s go-to-market strategy.
“I can’t imagine a more exciting time to join Fidelis,” Evans said. “Security organizations today face an unfair fight. But now, with the recent acquisition of Resolution1 Security and as a newly independent company, Fidelis is primed to equip organizations with a new approach to security that spans across both networks and endpoints and is backed up by an elite team of incident responders. I’m looking forward to working with our customers to help them even their odds in the battle against advanced attackers that seek to compromise their most sensitive data.”About Fidelis Cybersecurity
