Glen Sharlun, formerly a federal sales executive at ArcSight and Hewlett-Packard, has joined Authentic8, provider of the cloud-based browser Silo, as head of federal operations.
Sharlun’s appointment is part of the company’s efforts to expand into the federal market, Authentic8 said Thursday.
“Government employees, perhaps more than employees of commercial enterprises, need a completely secure and controlled method of accessing web-based content,” said Scott Petry, CEO and co-founder of Authentic8.
At ArcSight, Sharlun led market-specific development efforts and strategic services.
The 25-year cybersecurity and insider threats operations veteran also previously served as commanding officer of network defense at the U.S. Marine Corps.
He is also the founder of an advanced cyber research laboratory based in Monterey, California.
