Adlumin Expands Leadership Team with Promotion of Dan McQuade to Chief Technology Officer

As an Established Leader within Adlumin, McQuade Brings More Than 10 Years of Experience Building and Scaling Technology Companies to His New Role

WASHINGTON – April 25, 2023Adlumin, the security operations platform and managed detection and response (MDR) service provider keeping mid-market organizations secure, today announced the executive promotion of Dan McQuade to Chief Technology Officer. As a key member of Adlumin’s senior leadership team, McQuade will oversee the development and expansion of features and capabilities within the Adlumin Security Operations Platform.

“As a founding member of our engineering team, Dan has led Adlumin through some of its most important periods of technological growth,” said Robert Johnston, CEO and co-founder of Adlumin. “Dan has been a key contributor to building Adlumin and executing our vision to give mid-market organizations, and the service providers they rely on, a platform that includes everything they need for sophisticated cybersecurity operations. As CTO, Dan will play an even larger role in steering Adlumin’s future and the technology that provides a critical foundation for our MDR team and our trusted partners. He’s proven that he’s the right person for the job.”

With one platform and one license, Adlumin gives organizations everything they need for comprehensive security, including SIEM, vulnerability scanning, threat intelligence, UEBA threat hunting, honeypots, automated incident response and forensics, darknet exposure monitoring, compliance reporting and monitoring, and more. Adlumin’s patented, cloud-native Security Operations Platform is feature-rich enough for organizations to operate on their own yet explicitly built to amplify the skills and capabilities of managed service providers. Adlumin customers can use the platform on their own, partner with managed service providers, and utilize Adlumin’s MDR services for 24×7 human insights, threat hunting, and trusted support.

“When I joined Adlumin more than five years ago, I could sense we were creating something extraordinary,” said Dan McQuade. “Middle market organizations, such as banks, manufacturers, legal firms, healthcare institutions, schools, and various state and local governments are regularly targeted by cybercriminals and exposed to the same threats as large corporations, but they’ve struggled to effectively counter these threats due to limited resources and technology. We are now providing them with accessible tools that they can either use independently or in collaboration with the experts on our managed security services team. Every morning I wake up excited to work with the amazing team that we’ve assembled as we continue to grow and evolve the Adlumin platform.”

McQuade most recently served as Vice President of Engineering at Adlumin. He managed the deployment of core functionality within Adlumin’s Security Operations Platform and oversaw all aspects of the company’s cloud infrastructure. Among his many contributions to the platform, McQuade wrote the Adlumin Syslog collector application, developed the platform’s threat intelligence functionality, and created its highly-scalable multi-tenant architecture. Dan has worked in the technology/startup space for more than a decade and has been with Adlumin since 2018. He holds a BA from Georgetown University and is currently pursuing an MS in Information Security Engineering from The SANS Technology Institute.

The Adlumin platform is purpose-built to extend the skills and capabilities of service providers, and its multi-tenancy has been a key component of achieving that mission. It gives service providers unmatched visibility across their customer base so they can monitor emerging threats and take action without the need to traverse different environments.

Adlumin announced and will demo the most recent enhancements to its security operations platform at RSA Conference 2023, April 24-27, 2023, in San Francisco, California. Visit Adlumin in the South Hall of the Moscone Center at booth #1761 or book a meeting in advance at
