MORRISVILLE – The cyber asset management solutions company JupiterOne, Inc., is making changes to the company’s leadership team and its board of directors.
Sounil Yu will join the company as its chief information security officer, after serving as the CISO-in-residence for YL Ventures, assisting entrepreneurs as they validated ideas pertaining to cybersecurity.
“I’m excited for this new chapter of JupiterOne’s journey as we expand our board and executive leadership teams,” said Erkang Zheng, founder and CEO of JupiterOne.
The company is welcoming Uber’s chief information security officer, Latha Maripuri to its board of directors. At Uber, she oversees cybersecurity engineering, technical privacy, and physical security systems, and is the former global CISO at News Corp.
“Cyber asset management is not just about aggregation of assets and configuration, but what you can do with that data,” said Maripuri.
In March, the company announced additions to its strategic board of investors, including Frederic Kerrest, Executive Vice Chairman, Chief Operating Officer, and co-founder of Okta, Sri Viswanath, CTO of Atlassian, Kevin Mandia, CEO of FireEye, and Jason Chan, Vice President of Information Security at Netflix.
Last fall, JupiterOne brought in $19 million in venture funding to pursue its goal of helping companies automate asset discovery, visibility, and compliance, all critical for establishing a solid cyber security foundation.
“We believe that securing your enterprise starts with a deep understanding of your environment,” said Zheng at the time. “Security visibility is not just observability, but true understanding and insights that can only come from seeing how the dots are connected.”
