Norm Laudermilch Brings 25 Years of Technical and Executive Experience Spanning Fortune 50 Companies and Security Startups

GARTNER SECURITY & RISK MANAGEMENT SUMMIT, NATIONAL HARBOR, MD —June 23, 2014 – Invincea, Inc., the market leader in the use of secure virtual containers for user protection against advanced cybersecurity threats, today announced the appointment of Norm Laudermilch as the company’s first chief operating officer. He joins immediately and will report to Invincea Founder and CEO Anup Ghosh.

Laudermilch brings to his new role 25 years of extensive, hands-on experience in architecting, managing and growing all aspects of organizational infrastructure in the most demanding environments – including some of the largest global service providers. He most recently served as the chief operating officer for the Terremark Federal Group (part of Verizon) as well as the CISO of the cloud computing division of Verizon, Verizon Terremark.

“Managing operational growth in any market requires an iron will, and the security market amplifies the pressure exponentially,” said Laudermilch. “Invincea sits at the most critical and challenging segment of defense – end users – and its innovations have resulted in massive demand. I could not be more excited to join the company as it enters its next stage of significant growth and continues to change the game in the security market.”

Before joining Terremark, Laudermilch was CTO of mobile security provider, Trust Digital. He also oversaw managed services as a vice president at VeriSign and Symantec, as a result of the company’s acquisition of Riptech. Laudermilch was instrumental in facilitating the Riptech acquisition, having driven 300 percent annual revenue growth during a three year period. He holds the distinction of being a co-founder of the Internet Security Advisors Group, the Internet Service Provider Security Working Group (ISPSEC), and serving as global director of information security at UUNET/MCI WorldCom. Laudermilch has held the highest level of national security clearances and has experience in numerous classified environments. He has also acted as an advisor to the FBI Computer Crime Squad, assisting with computer crime investigations.

“From its inception, Invincea has been aggressive and steadfast in changing the way end users are protected against online threats. Today, Invincea is the market leader in protecting end users against spear-phishing attacks, 0-day exploits, web-based drive-bys, ransomware, and watering hole attacks. With a market footprint of protecting over 15,000 firms globally, Invincea is now poised for its next stage of hyper growth,” said Ghosh. “Norm’s proven track record in scaling both security start-ups and mature companies makes him an ideal partner in executing our market disruption strategy for fundamentally changing the way endpoints are protected and our customers secured.”
