SANTA BARBARA, Calif., March 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- MixMode, the leading context-aware AI platform for Network Security Monitoring, today announced that Bryan Elliot has joined MixMode as the new Vice President of Engineering. He will drive MixMode's technology initiatives that solve key big data challenges in the cybersecurity industry.
"We are very fortunate to have Bryan leading our engineering team," said John Keister, CEO at MixMode. "Bryan has deep experience in the security industry as a founder, CTO and engineering leader. He has built successful software products that have massive scale and we all look forward to working with him and learning from him."
Bryan will play a crucial role in the further development and steady customer implementation of MixMode's new platform, powered by unique and proprietary context-aware AI (CAAI). One of the key features of this new technology is the reduction of false positive security alerts by more than 90%, compared to typical rules-based ML systems. As VP of Engineering, Bryan will advise and execute upon product strategy roadmaps as well as manage, mentor and scale its global engineering organization (including development, quality and operations).
"We are at the dawn of a new era in cybersecurity, wherein Artificial Intelligence will increasingly inform, complement, and ultimately weave together traditional indicators and methods," said Bryan. "Opportunities like this come rarely, and I couldn't be more excited to join MixMode to lead this engineering team."
Bryan joins MixMode with more than 40 years' experience in software development and entrepreneurship, beginning with the Radio Shack TRS-80 (1977) as a seven-year-old child. He also has over 20 years' experience managing global software engineering organizations.
Prior to MixMode, Bryan served for over three years as Senior Director of Engineering, Identity & Commerce Platform Services, at LogMeIn, where he managed a team of 80 worldwide. He was also the co-founder and original CTO of Ping Identity Corporation (the industry leader in Identity & API security) and was the founder of PixiePath (an IoT company focusing on a SaaS platform for drones).
MixMode is the first to bring a third-wave, context-aware AI approach that automatically learns and adapts to dynamically changing environments. MixMode's monitoring platform, PacketSled, better understands network behavior as it adapts to baseline changes and enables both misuse detection and anomaly detection, as well as predictive maintenance. Used by enterprises and MSSPs for real-time network analysis, threat hunting and incident response, the platform leverages continuous stream monitoring and retrospection to provide network forensics and security analytics. Security teams can integrate PacketSled into their orchestration engine, SIEM, or use PacketSled independently to dramatically reduce false positive alerts and the resources required to respond to persistent threats, malware, insider attacks and nation state espionage efforts. Based in Santa Barbara, with offices in San Diego, the company is backed by Keshif Ventures and Blu Venture Investors. For more info please visit us at mixmode.ai.
