As Chief Strategy Officer at FireEye, Maiorino will play a key role in influencing the FireEye & Mandiant product and solutions strategy based on customer needs. Maiorino will also work with FireEye customers to deploy cybersecurity and risk management solutions to combat today’s dynamic threat environment.
“Brad has built and run security programs for some of the largest organizations in the world, and he understands customer needs and constraints, as well as the pressure of going toe-to-toe with the most sophisticated adversaries in the world,” said Mandia.
“He is bringing this experience to FireEye with a focus on delivering solutions and technology that answer the question so many organizations struggle to answer – are they secure?”

“FireEye is unique among security vendors because of our military-grade threat intelligence and capabilities to deliver world class solutions through technology,” said Maiorino.
“I am excited to draw on my experience as a customer to help sharpen how we deliver the combination of intel and services through technology and help take customers’ security programs from “best guess” to verifiable, risk-based programs.”
