To know yourself and your adversaries through high fidelity, actionable intelligence, that constantly informs your decisions and guides a dynamic security posture, is the new battleground. And I look forward to bringing my frontline operational and strategic experience to Anomali customers and partners.

The Anomali Platform greatly enhances an organization’s ability to address newly detected attacks, cresting threats and subsequent future attacks. Put simply, confidence in the face of uncertainty.”
