WhiteHat Security Appoints New Chief Security Officer

WhiteHat Security has named Joseph Fineman, former Gartner research vice president and fellow and co-founder of the application security market category, chief strategy officer.  Fineman will report to CEO Craig Hinkley.

During his tenure at Gartner, Fineman served as a trusted resource for security executives and professionals across the globe.  Prior to joining WhiteHat Security, he was chief innovation officer at Veracode, helping to bring the company to its culmination, when it was acquired by CA Technologies. 

"Applications are the crown jewels of all organizations. They run all of our business and social lives. Yet, application security is still often overlooked in both the development and operation stages," said Mr. Feiman.

He continued, "WhiteHat is one of the few players in the market that empowers DevSecOps and contributes to the high security of applications. The best vendors must offer multiple technologies and deliver them as a service, hardening application defenses and making testing quick and seamless over the internet. This is precisely what WhiteHat delivers. I have watched the company grow over the last 12 years, and I look forward to building on its success."

"We are proud to welcome Joseph, who originated the very market we thrive in, to WhiteHat," said CEO Craig Hinkley. "Joseph knows market challenges and what is needed to mitigate them, inside and out. Therefore, his decision to join our team is a testament to all we've worked towards. With his expertise, we are in an ideal position to reach more businesses in need than ever."
