Perimeter E-Security Names Jaquith CTO
Andrew Jaquith is the new chief technology officer of Perimeter E-Security, an information security and secure messaging services company based in Milford, Conn.
Most recently serving as a senior analyst with Forrester Research, Andrew brings more than 20 years of IT and information security experience.
Jaquith will spearhead Perimeter's technology strategy. He will be based in Perimeter's new innovation center in Boston, established earlier this year, to focus on the company's core security and compliance technologies and further develop Perimeter's hallmark integrated user experience.
"Andrew's track record and in-depth market expertise will elevate Perimeter's technology leadership and visibility as we refine our solutions to address the evolving messaging and security needs of our medium to large enterprise customers," said Tim Harvey, CEO.
"Perimeter is the best kept secret in today's competitive security and compliance market," said Jaquith. "Enterprises of all sizes face increasing compliance burdens and an escalating threat environment. Over the last 10 years, CIOs have had to cobble together a complex security infrastructure that isn't keeping pace. Perimeter offers cloud-based and managed services that make security simpler, with economies of scale and expertise that they can't get anywhere else. I am excited about the opportunity to drive Perimeter's vision forward and look forward to working with the management team to make that vision a reality."
At Forrester Research, Jaquith led coverage for data, endpoint and mobile security and wrote 20 popular reports on data leak prevention, encryption, endpoint security, mobile security and vendor M&A. Prior to Forrester, he served as program manager in Yankee Group's enabling technologies enterprise group, with coverage of client security, digital identity, and web application security. Before joining Yankee Group, he co-founded @stake, a security consulting pioneer, which Symantec acquired in 2004. Previously, he held project manager and business analyst positions at Cambridge Technology Partners and FedEx.
Jaquith is the co-developer of the Apache JSPWiki open source wiki software package and the author of the 2007 Addison-Wesley Professional book "Security Metrics: Replacing Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt." He holds a bachelor's degree in economics and political science from Yale University.
