Developing strategies that drive revenue
Singh has 25 years of customer-centric leadership at global software and security companies, and Securonix said he has a history of building and implementing strategies that drive revenue and scale businesses.
Most recently, Singh was chief revenue officer at Datto Inc., a global provider of cloud-based software and security solutions, where he helped double the top line revenue to more than $700 million in three years.
He led Datto’s go-to-market organization through the company’s IPO and its eventual acquisition by Kaseya in June 2022, Securonix said. Before his time at Datto, Singh spent nearly 18 years at Akamai Technologies building and overseeing various global go-to-market functions in a number of leadership roles.
“Securonix continues to raise the bar for autonomous threat detection and response,” Singh said in a statement. “As a leader in cloud-native security analytics and operations, Securonix’s unparalleled vision in bringing an innovative solution to market has us well positioned to enter our next stage of growth. This is an exciting time for the company, and I look forward to partnering with Nayaki to scale Securonix’s business to the next level while continuing to build meaningful relationships with our customers and partners.”
Late last year, Securonix appointed Nayyar as CEO. The company said that its platform is designed to defend against advanced threats in today’s complex hybrid environments.
