VENAFI

Senior Product Marketing Manager

Keys and certificates are the least understood domain in cyber security. Take a second and learn what our customers have discovered…


There are 2 actors on a network, people and machines. People use user names and passwords to identify and get access to machines. Machines use keys and certificates to identify and get access each other. 

Billions of dollars have been spent protecting user names and passwords and almost nothing protecting keys and certificates— organizations are just now realizing that protecting keys and certificates is as important as protecting user names and passwords, if not more important. The problem is continuing to grow-- the number of machines and things on a network is growing very fast, much faster than the number of people.


In addition to identity, keys and certificates create secure tunnels between machines that keep their communications private and most organizations don’t know where the tunnels are in their organization. The bad guys know this and are using stolen or forged keys and certificates to attack networks and steal data. In fact, Gartner says 50% of network attacks will use certificates in 2017.


Venafi is the inventor of the technology that secures and protects keys and certificates and many of the largest organizations in the world use Venafi.

WELLTOK

Head of Product Marketing and Commercialization

Welltok, the health optimization pioneer, is revolutionizing the way population health managers align consumer actions and behaviors with the right incentives and rewards. In the role of product marketing and as part of the commercialization team, I collaborate with C-suite executives and key executives across the organization to determine how to develop assets that cohesively describe our products and services, message to our different lines of business, and make our fast-growing company more scalable and efficient as we continue to expand our client-base and core capabilities. 

I have delivered over 200 customer-facing deliverables spanning presentations, product brochures, data sheets, and detailed product/services feature lists. These deliverables create the basic building blocks for the organization, standardize package offerings, and empower the sales team to clearly articulate our capabilities to customers. In this role, reporting to the CMO, I routinely manage cross-organizational communication at the highest levels of the organization to ensure we present a cohesive story to the market and manage through change on a continuous basis.
