“Through leading product innovation and strategic industry alliances, the Arctic Wolf Security Operations Cloud is the backbone of our company, and the platform has scaled to protect multiple attack surfaces and deliver automated threat detection and response at scale, with the ease of our concierge delivery model,” said Nick Schneider, president and chief executive officer, Arctic Wolf. “With the demand to deliver critical outcomes across the entire security ecosystem—especially in the enterprise sector—we are excited to welcome Dan to our leadership team. He will enable and drive a vision for our teams that delivers on the product innovation and industry alliances that have placed Arctic Wolf at the front of the pack.”
“Arctic Wolf is in rarified air in terms of business momentum, platform innovation, and demand for security operations,” added Schiappa, chief product officer, Arctic Wolf. “The platform scale, feature development, and alliance network led by the teams here is impressive, and I’m thrilled to join the company to continue adding value to all our solutions. Our vision is to help our growing customer base fend off the latest cyber threats with a leading technology platform built to end cyber risk.”

This momentum is driven by a strong uptick in demand for the technology in the enterprise market.
