Tanium appoints Ryan Kazanciyan as CTO
Tanium, the platform for Business Resilience, has announced the appointment of Ryan Kazanciyan to Chief Technology Officer (CTO). With deep industry experience, Kazanciyan will focus on oversight of our product vision and strategy to help organizations and governments around the world achieve Business Resilience.
Kazanciyan is an accomplished technology executive with almost 20 years of experience enabling growth and driving business value at global organizations. As CTO, Kazanciyan will have end-to-end responsibility over the Tanium roadmap and product vision and continue to be a public evangelist for how Tanium helps organizations and governments transform IT operations and security.
Kazanciyan first joined Tanium in 2015 as Chief Security Architect, and in 2018 became Chief Product Officer. Earlier in his distinguished career, Kazanciyan ran investigation and remediation efforts at Mandiant. He’s been an instructor for Black Hat and the FBI’s Cyber Squad, is a contributing author for Incident Response and Computer Forensics, 3rd Edition and has been a technical consultant for TV’s “Mr. Robot.”
Tanium CEO, Orion Hindawi, commented: “Tanium has achieved phenomenal growth in the past two years because we’re thinking about the challenges of IT operations and security differently than other companies out there. We offer a modern platform, built for this century, that provides unprecedented visibility and control of endpoint devices from a single source. Ryan’s trusted voice and vision has been integral at Tanium and we look forward to further acceleration of our technology under his leadership as our new CTO.”
Tanium Chief Technology Officer, Ryan Kazanciyan, commented: “The acceleration of technology has left many organizations with complex and fragile IT environments, reliant on a fragmented ecosystem of products that undermine the problems they were meant to solve. At Tanium, we believe that adopting a unified approach to systems management and security is foundational to a resilient business that can withstand disruption. I’m delighted to have been appointed to CTO, and excited to continue driving innovation across Tanium’s technology offerings to help our customers transform how they manage and protect their endpoints.”
Kazanciyan further expands the Tanium leadership team which has recently appointed Susan Panico as Chief Marketing Officer. Over the past 18 months, Tanium added key leaders to its executive team from some of the world’s most distinguished brands including Salesforce, DreamWorks Animation, and Ericsson.
