NinjaOne, a unified IT operations platform for managed service providers (MSPs) and IT departments, announced Mike Arrowsmith as its new Chief Trust Officer. Based in the Bay Area, Arrowsmith will report to the CEO and take the lead on all security and IT initiatives for NinjaOne, with early priorities focused on scaling and aligning the company’s internal teams and resources.
With a background in joining organizations at key inflection points, Arrowsmith previously rose the ranks to become head of Splunk’s cyber security program as it became a multi-billion-dollar company. Most recently, he served as Head of Information Security of Guardant Health, where he supported the company’s growth from 700 to 1,400 employees.
His experience arrives at a critical moment for NinjaOne and the IT software industry, where trust and data security are increasingly becoming the top priority of new customers and partners.
“Mike joins NinjaOne as the company comes off a record year of growth, new products and a rebrand that has fueled our trajectory to market leadership,” said NinjaOne CEO Sal Sferlazza. “We know that security and data privacy are of the utmost importance to our customers, employees and the public, so we created this role to reflect our ongoing commitment to and investment in security. Mike’s proven ability to lead high-growth teams and develop robust security standards makes him the perfect fit for NinjaOne at this moment. We’re proud to welcome him to the team.”
Arrowsmith’s first priorities as Chief Trust Officer will be to evaluate NinjaOne’s cybersecurity, IT and DevOps infrastructure to ensure the company can scale while meeting the demands of modern customers. He also will play a role in hiring and expanding these teams, which are expected to double this year.
NinjaOne’s growth has accelerated, with the company reporting a nearly 75 percent surge in revenue in 2021. The company’s global footprint is expanding rapidly with widespread adoption seen across EMEA and APAC, and new planned investments for offices this year in London and in Sydney.
NinjaOne supports more than 7,000 customers with more than 3 million endpoints under management. For more information or to sign up for a free trial, visit https://www.ninjaone.com/freetrialform/.
