Tomic joins effective immediately to oversee product development strategy and execution.

Tomic is a veteran of the security industry with more than 20 years of experience leading the design and development of industry-leading platforms at McAfee, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Symantec and DXC Security Services.

His experience building, leading and scaling high-performing and multi-layer engineering teams is exactly what the company needs to fuel our global growth and vision of security optimization.”

In his capacity as CDO, Tomic will ensure AttackIQ’s product offerings are highly competitive, drive growth and customer retention, and advance toward the company’s mission to make the world safe for compute.

“I joined AttackIQ because the company is solving a unique industry challenge,” said Tomic. “It’s not trying to introduce another security tool to market, it’s helping organizations ensure their current cybersecurity program and security controls can stand up to real-world threats, are optimized for effectiveness, and ready for future attacks. I am excited to lead a diverse development and product team with a broad array of expertise and contribute to AttackIQ’s growth in the BAS industry.”
