Building off its strong European reputation, a leadership team drawn from the industry’s top cybersecurity firms, creation of a new U.S. headquarters in Phoenix, Arizona, as well as the Group’s recent acquisition of Milestone Systems (now renamed Kudelski Security), Kudelski Security enters the North American market with a strong Fortune 500 client base, unique combination of capabilities and a plan to change how clients work with solutions providers to design, deploy and manage cybersecurity solutions. 

The Kudelski Group and Kudelski Security bring a long history of innovation and engineering expertise to address demand for solutions to defend against new and emerging threats. 
 
In addition, Kudelski Security has assembled a rich and growing ecosystem of strategic technology partners, including F5, Palo Alto Networks, CrowdStrike, RSA and others to help clients address their most complex security challenges with best-of-breed solutions.
 
Kudelski Security’s US launch also includes a number of senior leadership appointments as Kudelski Security expands its global presence. These include the appointment of Andrew Howard, formerly director of Cyber Technology and Information Security Lab at Georgia Tech, as Chief Technology Officer.
 
Additionally, during Black Hat USA 2016, two experts from Kudelski Security will contribute their industry expertise during a session on Software Guard Extension (SGX).
