RALEIGH – There’s a big change in the executive suite at Raleigh-based cybersecurity firm CoSoSys. The founder is moving from CEO to chief strategy officer and a new CEO is taking over.

Kevin Gallagher is the new top exec, moving to Raleigh from Austin, Texas, where he was chief revenue officer at Invicti Security.

Founder Roman Foeckl “will take on a focused role as Chief Strategy Officer,” the company said in a statement.

“CoSoSys is uniquely positioned to help organizations address an ever increasing threat landscape, and fill the many security gaps that are starting to emerge,” Gallagher said in the announcement. “The company has a strong vision to connect the wider security stack to its endpoint-based technology, enabling real-time action based on user and endpoint behavior. I’m excited to join such a talented team and help lead the business through its next stage of growth.”
