CyberFlow Analytics Appoints Industry Veteran Steve Nye as President and CEO
CyberFlow Analytics, an emerging leader in the Cyber Security market with its Security Network Behavior Analytics solution FlowScape™, and recently awarded Top Innovative Startup in the Internet of Everything from among 3000 companies by Cisco, announces Steve Nye has joined the company as President and CEO.
Steve Nye comes out of the Silicon Valley to join other Silicon Valley veterans Dr. Hossein Eslambolchi, Tom Caldwell and Dr. William Wright to drive industry leadership in securing the Internet of Things (IoT). This team, led by Steve has rich business and technical experience working at companies like Infoblox, AT&T, Cisco, RSA, Paypal, CA Technologies and Microsoft.
“I have been watching CyberFlow Analytics since its inception and saw a creative and innovative Company solving very difficult security threat problems by using real-time analytics. What makes this Company so special is that its approach delivers results far beyond the enterprise network to all ‘Things’ connected to the network” stated Steve Nye, former executive at Infoblox (NYSE: BLOX) and Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO). “I left Silicon Valley to build and grow a world class team to deliver an industry-leading security platform for the Internet of Things. Tom Caldwell and I have teamed together in the past where we have delivered nearly a quarter of a billion dollars to investors. I look forward to working with the CyberFlow team to continue delivering value.”
CyberFlow Analytics has strategic investments from Toshiba and the Venture Capital Unit of Siemens, both makers of the “Things” that are connected to the Internet and leaders in IoT for Healthcare, Government, Energy, Transportation and Industrial Manufacturing markets. Although the Company is emerging from semistealth operations, it has many active customers and pilots in IoT where traditional enterprise products fall short.
“Siemens is actively involved in securing the Industrial Internet of Things with a set of managed security services for our global customers” stated Dr. Ralf Schnell, CEO of the Venture Capital Unit of Siemens. “We view the addition of Steve Nye to the leadership team as a critical step in taking CyberFlow Analytics to the next level of growth.”
Steve brings a vision to CyberFlow Analytics for real-time streaming analytics becoming the strategic platform for enterprises to expand their threat defense capabilities to encompass all IoT devices being connected to their networks. The CISO now has to expand their security framework to continuously monitor not only traditional Enterprise IT environments, but monitor machine-to-machine communications from IoT devices such as scanners, POS, Robots and even MRI machines in healthcare. CyberFlow Analytics is revolutionary with its rapid deployment and ability to start continuous threat detection of known and unknown threats immediately.
