Former RSA Chairman Art Coviello Joins CloudKnox Strategic Advisory Board

Highly-Recognized Security Strategist Will Help Guide CloudKnox's Accelerating Growth and Expansion

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – October 7, 2019 – CloudKnox Security, the leader in identity privilege management for hybrid and multi-cloud environments, today announced that Art Coviello, former RSA executive chairman and well-known security strategist, joined the company’s strategic advisory board. In this role, he will bring his 35 years of strategic, operating and financial management experience in cyber security to help the CloudKnox team reach its full market potential.

“With the proliferation of automation, IT teams have gone from managing less than 100 privileges and their associated risks to over 30,000 privileges across the major cloud platforms,” said Coviello. “This represents a major gap in the cloud security market, which CloudKnox uniquely and purposely fills. I’m impressed with the vision of Balaji and his team to help enterprises manage the identity privilege lifecycle while avoiding any impact to productivity or trust.” 

Coviello is currently a venture partner at Rally Ventures, a leading investor in early-stage business technology companies. Prior to joining Rally, he retired as Executive Chairman of RSA Security, the security division of EMC. Coviello joined RSA Security in 1995 and became CEO of the company in 2000. During his tenure, he was the driving force in RSA’s rapid growth, increasing annual revenue from $25 million to over $1 billion. As an industry thought leader, Coviello is a regular speaker at conferences and forums, and frequently provides counsel to enterprises and government agencies combating emerging threats.

“Art brings remarkable prestige and success in building world-class cyber security businesses to CloudKnox as a strategic advisor,” said Balaji Parimi, CEO of CloudKnox. “Beyond this experience, he has broad perspective of the strategic needs of CISOs and enterprise-level security priorities. Art will be a tremendous advisor in helping to guide our growth in the cloud security market.”

The addition of Coviello to the CloudKnox strategic advisory board comes amidst accelerating growth at the company. CloudKnox was selected as a Top 10 finalist for the RSA Conference 2019 Innovation Sandbox contest, which honors the industry’s most innovative startups, and received a Best of VMworld award recognizing the most innovative new products. The company also attained Advanced Technology Partner Status in the Amazon Web Services Partner Network (APN), which is the highest tier for technology partners that provide software and SaaS solutions.
