Columbia, MD – November 6, 2019 – Bricata, Inc., a leading provider of comprehensive network protection, today announced two additions to its executive team. Andre Ludwig joins as chief product officer (CPO) and Jason Moore joins as vice president of sales. Both are seasoned cybersecurity executives and will lead the development and execution of the Bricata product and sales strategies as the company experiences accelerating market traction.
“We are very pleased to have Andre and Jason join the Bricata team and believe our ability to attract their talent speaks volumes about our company and product,” said Bricata CEO John Trauth. “Their industry expertise in product innovation and sales leadership will be instrumental as we continue to develop and deliver solutions that empower organizations to solve complex and evolving network security challenges.”
Ludwig brings more than 20 years of in-depth technical experience and more than 10 years of product management experience to Bricata. He joins from QOMPLX where he served as the vice president of Cyber Products. Notably, he has also held critical cybersecurity positions at Capital One, where he developed the company’s machine learning capabilities. His extensive background in cybersecurity includes security engineering, malware analysis, incident response, reverse engineering, exploit detection and analysis, distributed systems design for custom network sensing, and cutting-edge defensive research and development.
Moore also brings years of sales and business development experience in cybersecurity, developing and executing global sales programs and building and leading high-performing sales teams. He joins Bricata from Mainline Information Systems where he served as general manager for Emerging Technologies and built a new sales organization to drive revenue. Prior to Mainline, he was vice president of Global Sales for BluVector and has served in sales leadership roles at other technology companies including SS8 Networks, Telesoft Technologies and Endace.
Bricata has reached several notable milestones this year that offers a glimpse into the traction it’s earning in the market. Since the end of 2017, Bricata has more than doubled its customers and tripled its annual recurring revenue (ARR). The company has also strengthened key partnerships with other solutions providers and earned analyst recognition for its innovation in network traffic analysis (NTA) and intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDPS).
The company continues to enhance its product and recently released a new version of the Bricata platform. The latest release includes features requested by customers for metadata filters, customizable management dashboards and a “smart” alert grouping to reduce the fatigue of cybersecurity alert deluge.
Last year, Bricata was selected for the inaugural list of NVTC Tech 100 companies for its technological innovation. It also earned a solid independent review of its product by the security trade publication CSO Online: Bricata adds threat hunting to traditional IPS/IDS.
