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.
In his role as strategic advisor, Coviello will keynote SKOUT’s business-building, virtual event on October 28, 2020. Themed REBOUND 2020, the event will offer SKOUT’s MSP partners and prospects actionable content on how to grow a business more profitably, maintain security and build resiliency for the long term.
