With its cloud-based security, the Hamburg, Germany-based company Secucloud is providing companies with protection against increasingly complex threats from the Internet. Secucloud has now appointed Renzo Pecoraro, a former executive director of Morgan Stanley, as CTO to spearhead the ongoing development of the Secucloud infrastructure.
Telcos and mobile operators can use Secucloud solutions to offer their customers protection directly from the cloud. The firm has multiplied its revenues by six and won many new customers over the last year including large telcos, one of which is T-Mobile in the Netherlands.
During the course of his career, Renzo Pecoraro was an executive director at Morgan Stanley in New York. In this position, he led the central software development team, which created internal systems dedicated to IT change and release management as well as reporting, controlling and compliance (Sarbanes-Oxley Act).
After almost 20 years’ experience in the US, he worked as technical product manager in the areas of data security, permissions management, and access and identity management. Renzo Pecoraro has more than ten years’ experience in the management of international software development teams.
“Secucloud’s Elastic Cloud Security System ECS2 has a modular cloud architecture that combines a wide variety of components, including multi-AV, anti-phishing, deep packet inspection, APT protection and much more,” said Renzo Pecoraro. “In order to deliver the highest level of protection, these security engines must work together seamlessly and efficiently at all times. Internet threats are becoming more sophisticated and more dangerous. Our ECS2 solution must reflect that fact and evolve continually in order to stay a step ahead of these threats from the virtual world. I’m excited to have this opportunity to help shape this technical evolution process at Secucloud.”
Secucloud specializes in security for the Internet of Things (IoT). The company’s security mechanisms, which defend users against cybercrime and spying attempts, are located in the cloud and directly protect all the customer’s connected devices.
As a cloud solution, no software installation or configuration is required and the solution updates itself automatically. Users would benefit from security technologies that, until now, have only been available to large enterprises with plenty of financial muscle.
