New Board Member Brings Unrivaled Perspective on Cybersecurity in the Enterprise to Developer of Data Security as a Service
AUSTIN, Texas—December 12, 2019—ALTR, developer of the most advanced data governance and protection technology on the market, announced that Jason Truppi has been named to its board of advisors. Truppi is globally recognized for advising companies of all sizes on cybersecurity risk management and governance through the practical use of technology, operational guidance, working best practices and standards. He will advise ALTR on closing vulnerability gaps around sensitive data and the massive risks that data visibility, loss, and theft pose for the largest companies in the world.
“We are thrilled to have Jason join our board of advisors at ALTR,” said Dave Sikora, CEO at ALTR. “He is an accomplished cybersecurity leader and a strong advocate for corporate defenders looking to better analyze, detect and mitigate incidents. Having worked with more than half of the largest companies in the U.S., Jason has an important perspective on the challenges they face within their own networks and the devices that are connected to them. His views will be a tremendous asset.”
A co-founder of cybersecurity services firm ShiftState Security, Truppi has more than two decades of security and technology industry experience including work on some of the largest national security and criminal cyber-intrusion cases. He served as a Cyber Special Agent for the FBI, and developed scalable threat detection techniques for Fortune 500 companies at Tanium. In addition to his role at ShiftState, Truppi advises technology startups and helps drive cyber-policy as a Cybersecurity Fellow at the Center for Strategic & International Studies.
“Security threats to the enterprise, on-premise or in the cloud, increasingly come not just from outsiders and the explosion of devices connected to networks, but also from inside sources,” said Truppi. “ALTR addresses this challenge by offering built-in data security for applications to achieve a defensive posture through well thought-out policies, controls, and monitoring. Adding ALTRs capability to aging legacy database architectures should be a no brainer for all companies looking to increase their security without affecting their production applications. The future of cybersecurity is in protecting data and increasing privacy.”
ALTR solves the problem of threats to data security by protecting the data that applications create, store, and share from breaches and intrusion. By delivering Data Security as a Service (DSaaS), ALTR allows developers to embed data monitoring, governance, and at-rest protection natively at the application layer. Supported by private blockchain technology, ALTR provides an API and scalable smart database drivers that make it possible to virtually eliminate data access risks, making applications more portable and cost efficient to implement and maintain than traditional applianceware or outdated endpoint security systems.
ALTR is the first provider of programmable data security, which embeds data monitoring, governance, and at-rest protection natively into application code to provide a dramatically more effective, more portable, simpler data-security model. Using a smart database driver or API that serves as a single integration point, ALTR makes it possible for development teams to place security into the critical path of data and hand off management of governance and protection policy to security and compliance teams. Further supported by private blockchain to provide integrity to data access auditing and protected data itself, it is a completely portable approach that neutralizes data access risks from even the most privileged users while accelerating innovation and reducing the cost and complexity of data security. ALTR, which holds 21 issued and allowed patents and has more than 30 patents pending, is based in Austin.
