Conceal announced that General Sir Chris Deverell, the former Commander of the UK’s Joint Forces Command, has joined its board of advisors.
“With the growing sophistication of cyber attack techniques used by criminal and nation state actors, organizations need defensive technology that not only detects and defends against threats but also makes them harder to target,” said General Sir Chris Deverell. “Conceal’s isolation-based approach to securing end users as well as a company’s infrastructure is one of the most advanced security technologies I’ve seen in recent years.”
“General Sir Chris Deverell is one of the world’s most respected military leaders, and a tremendous addition to our advisory board,” said Gordon Lawson, CEO of Conceal. “We are honored that he will provide strategic advice to help us meet the needs of the world’s largest government and corporate entities that want to implement a zero trust approach to security.”
