An Austin, Texas, company specializing in cybersecurity validation will have a Baltimore presence as a result of a new executive hire.
Dina Bruzek is joining NSS Labs as executive vice president of product. Bruzek will be based in Baltimore, and oversee strategy for the company’s engineering and product management groups, according to NSS Labs.
NSS Labs makes a platform called CAWS, which measures how well security measures are working and produces a scorecard.
Bruzek formerly held a product leadership role at Sourcefire. After the Columbia-based company was acquired by Cisco for $2.7 billion in 2013, she oversaw a $1.5 billion product portfolio leading Cisco’s Network Threat Defense group.
“Dina brings a wealth of experience driving the development of market-leading cybersecurity products,” said Vikram Phatak, CEO of NSS Labs.
Bricata, which makes a device to prevent and hunt security threats, is beefing up its management team following its $8 million Series A earlier this year.
The Columbia-based company brought on Phil Salopek as Chief Financial Officer. He previously held the CFO role at Notable Solutions, BroadSoft and AXENT Technologies. The latter company was acquired for $1 billion by Symantec. According to Bricata, a connection for Salopek is former Sourcefire CEO John Becker, who is on the startup’s board. The two previously worked together at AXENT.
Bricata is also bringing Orville Pike as VP of Engineering. Pike joins from Bethesda-based KoolSpan, where he led a software team focused on secure VoIP and messaging applications.-30-
