(businesspress24) - August 20, 2019 – RiskIQ, the global leader in attack surface management, today announced the appointment of Dean Coza to its leadership team as chief product officer. Most recently the executive vice president at Absolute Software, Coza brings over 20 years of experience leading product and technology teams at industry heavyweights including FireEye, ArcSight, and VMWare. At RiskIQ, Coza will head up Engineering, Product, Research and Tech Ops organisations and be fully responsible for products from planning to delivery, scale and adoption of RiskIQ's industry-leading platform.

Coza joins RiskIQ as organisations across the world are embracing attack surface management, driven by a surge of data breaches originating outside the firewall. Coza will deliver products that tap into the company's proprietary global discovery and detection infrastructure, uniquely suited to solve this fast-growing problem.

"I was deeply impressed by the team and technology at RiskIQ, and blown away by the breadth and depth of the Internet data it's collected over the years," Coza said. "Security defenders and responders depend on this data every day to respond to incidents and use RiskIQ cloud-based analytics to minimise their attack surface and proactively manage risks in their digital footprint."

Coza's appointment coincides with the launch of a new cloud-based analytics module, RiskIQ's JavaScript Threats, which monitors web assets and JavaScript resources for changes and suspicious behavior. The solution detects specific attacks such as the credit-card skimming syndicate Magecart implicated in the British Airways breach resulting in a $230M GDPR fine.

"We've defined the category of attack surface management and are bringing Dean in to scale the organisation to support our growth," said Lou Manousos, RiskIQ CEO. “His leadership and experience in building successful cybersecurity products will guide us toward the next round of our platform adoption, and revenue goals."

At Absolute, Coza led the Product and Corporate Development organisations. Prior to Absolute, as senior vice president products at FireEye, Coza led the Product organisation during its hyper-growth stage and saw revenue increase from $70M to $700M. Before FireEye, Coza held executive product management and marketing roles at VMware, Forcepoint (Websense), ArcSight (pre-IPO), and others.
