CEO and Founder, SPHERE
Rita Gurevich is the CEO and founder of SPHERE, leading the strategic growth and vision for the organization.
Rita began her career at Lehman Brothers and helped oversee the distribution of technology assets after their bankruptcy in 2008. From this, Rita gained a deep understanding in analyzing identities, data platforms, and overall application and system landscape that had to be distributed across all the buying entities. At the same time, the enhanced regulatory environment focusing on protecting data from misuse, forced large enterprises to manage and control access more proactively across their on-premises and cloud environments.
With this knowledge, Gurevich founded SPHERE, an organization that provides critical governance, security and compliance solutions centered around the age-old access control problem that organizations face. The company has developed a repeatable and effective approach to assessing, remediating, and managing access controls across any scope. Rita has overseen the growth of SPHERE into a software and services company providing its clients with the only end-to-end access management solution available today.
Gurevich is the recipient of multiple honors and awards including recognition from her entrepreneurial skills from Ernst & Young, and SmartCEO, along with being on the 40 Under 40 list in 2017.
