Art Coviello Jr. Joins SKOUT Cybersecurity as Senior Advisor

SKOUT has announced that security industry visionary and investor Art Coviello Jr. is now serving as a senior advisor to the company.

Coviello has been an influential figure within the information security industry for more than 25 years. His strategic vision and management as long-time head of RSA Security helped drive the company’s growth and revenues to more than $1 billion before retiring in 2015.

Coviello also serves as a venture partner at Rally Ventures, an advisor to ClearSky Security Fund and senior advisor to Blackstone’s Tactical Opportunities Group. He is a member of the board of directors of Synchrony Financial, Tenable, and several security startups.

According to SKOUT, the appointment of Coviello follows a 700 percent year-to-date increase in the number of MSPs using their software platform and signals an acceleration of the team’s growth plans. Earlier this year, SKOUT launched a new series of security software products focused on work-from-home protection.  The move gained significant traction in the MSP community by addressing business email compromise, ransomware, and compliance for SMBs.
