Cybersecurity Leader from Barracuda Networks, Blackstone Group and Optiv Steers Product and Service Development for Burgeoning Security Operations Platform and MDR Provider
WASHINGTON – November 15, 2023 – Adlumin, the security operations platform and managed detection and response (MDR) provider keeping mid-market organizations secure, today announced that it hired Jessvin Thomas as its first chief product officer (CPO). With more than two decades of experience scaling cybersecurity teams, products and managed service offerings at organizations including Barracuda Networks, Optiv and Blackstone Group, Thomas will lead Adlumin’s product and services teams to continue developing innovative offerings that solve critical security needs for its customers and channel partners.
“Adlumin is growing rapidly because we’ve figured out how to bring sophisticated cybersecurity technology and expertise to a massive swath of the market that couldn’t access it before. As we mature and scale, adding another proven leader like Jessvin to our executive team will enable us to accelerate growth even more,” said Robert Johnston, CEO and co-founder of Adlumin. “Jessvin has the perfect combination of expertise to lead our product and services organizations through the next phase of growth. He’s been extremely successful in building security products and teams, delivering security services, and working hand-in-hand with channel partners. We couldn’t ask for a better fit.”
Prior to joining Adlumin, Thomas founded Cyber iSight, a SaaS platform to help virtual chief information security officers (vCISOs) improve security programs and the security posture of mid-market companies. As part of his new role, he’ll apply these concepts towards advancing Adlumin’s mission of helping mid-market companies protect themselves and improve their security capabilities.
Before founding Cyber iSight, Thomas was senior vice president and chief technology officer at Barracuda SKOUT Managed XDR. Thomas joined Barracuda Networks in 2021 after its acquisition of SKOUT Secure Intelligence, where he was President and CTO and led the company through the successful acquisition and integration with Barracuda. Before SKOUT, Thomas held leadership roles at Optiv including VP and GM of managed security services, and VP and GM of next generation security orchestration analytics. He was also VP at The Blackstone Group where he implemented world class security operations for the company, developed repeatable programs to extend to Blackstone’s portfolio of companies, and helped identify seed and Series A investment opportunities in technology startups.
“I’ve been extremely fortunate throughout my career to work with some of the most respected and forward-looking organizations in business and cybersecurity, and joining Adlumin is another step in that journey,” said Jessvin Thomas, CPO at Adlumin. “It’s an exciting time to be joining an organization that’s having such a profound impact on improving cybersecurity for a massive segment of the market that needs it now more than ever before.”
Thomas joins Adlumin following several major milestones, including the close of a $70 million funding round that will enable the company to accelerate its aggressive growth. The company was also recently ranked among the top 10% of America’s fastest-growing private companies by Inc. Magazine, earned a spot on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™, and was named to The Information’s 50 Most Promising Startups list for 2023.
