Chris will apply his expertise in building security products to Threat Stack’s innovative threat detection platform, with a primary focus on continued innovation and scale to support the company’s rapid growth.
“As we head into AWS re:Invent, the public cloud landscape has never been more complex, and security has never been a bigger concern.

Ahern, CEO and Chairman of Threat Stack. “I’m excited to welcome them both to the leadership team, and honored that such talented veterans of the Boston security space have chosen to take the next steps in their careers with us.”
