SailPoint says Poff will be responsible for the overall security of its products, services, networks and assets, and will also be a key stakeholder on the company’s board-level Cyber Security Committee, which has a charter to drive the cyber risk resiliency across both its technology and its products.
“Securing our company and technology is critical to every aspect of our business, particularly as we grow and scale to meet our customers’ evolving security and compliance needs,” said Mark McClain, chief executive and co-founder of SailPoint.
“The calibre of expertise and lengthy track record that Charles brings to SailPoint is impressive and we look forward to the impact he will have on the business.”
“He has extensive expertise in building world-class security teams focused on delivering proactive security programs. He joins SailPoint after nearly 10 years at HomeAway, where he led their security program,” the company says.
“In the face of escalating cyber risks, organisations need to be increasingly agile and focused on cybersecurity and compliance,” said Jim Pflaging, SailPoint board of directors member and chair of the Cybersecurity Committee.
“Charles’ approach to cyber risk management fits well with SailPoint’s deep-seated commitment to improving security and privacy for our customers, employees, and stakeholders.”
Commenting on his appointment, Poff said, “SailPoint is very focused on driving security alignment across the business, a philosophy I strongly believe in.
“I am honoured to be joining SailPoint where I’ll have the opportunity to lead the company into a new chapter of maturity in how we protect our products, systems, data, and ultimately, our customers.”
