In this newly-created role, Mr. Kasper will oversee the southeast expansion of Atlantic's service delivery, operations and sales execution from Maryland to Florida.
A cyber security-technology veteran, Mr. Kasper brings more than 22 years of cyber security operations, sales and consulting experience to Atlantic. He will be an integral leader in delivering on the company's mission to be the trusted partner to enterprises and government agencies worldwide seeking to secure their data and that of their valued customers. In addition to taking responsibility for delivering Atlantic's vision, he will also continue to expand the reach of our partners, vendors and consultants into clients where their skills can make a difference in our client's network and security challenges.
"Atlantic has spent the past several years establishing ourselves as one of the top security pure plays in the northeast.

Romkey continued, "Over the past two decades I have worked with Scott in several capacities and he brings a unique energy and passion to the table. His reputation in the industry is beyond reproach and we are looking forward to helping Scott introduce Atlantic's unique approach to IT Security to this new market."
Mr. Kasper joins Atlantic from Symantec, where he was Head of Cloud Security for the Americas. In this role, Scott lead a specialized team of seasoned cyber security professionals with a focus on making sure their customers data is secure in the cloud no matter what architecture they chose to invest in.

Mr. Kasper also serves on several advisory boards.
"Security has evolved over the past few decades in a way that no one could have predicted. The challenges used to focus on making sure the perimeter of an organization was safe. Almost all of the interaction with a company's data was internal and when external it was very limited and addressed through virtual private networks and encryption. IT transformation and advances in cloud technology has turned that architecture on its head. Utilizing the cloud to make your company more proficient and to also increase the experience of your partners and customers become the de-facto standard. The benefits of these advancements in technology are extremely impactful and beneficial to companies of all sizes. It also expands the complexity of addressing their security concerns. More and more external experts are needed to stay on top of the ever changing and expanding environments, cyber talent is incredibly hard to come by and to retain," said Mr. Kasper.
