“Getting more out of their security investments is top of mind for
organizations around the globe and requires a knowledge-driven
conversation,” said Amad Fida, CEO of Brinqa. “Will is an experienced
technology leader with a successful track record of instrumenting
integrated ecosystems, driving leading-edge technology strategy, and
delivering data-driven cybersecurity solutions at the largest scale. He
is uniquely qualified to help us lead the charge for a new generation of
knowledge-driven, risk-centric cybersecurity solutions and meet growing
global demand.”

Droste brings more than 20 years of experience in designing, developing
and implementing big data security platforms for the world’s largest
companies to Brinqa. In his most recent position at Arris, he delivered
a customer data collection platform for millions of devices, processing
nearly 8 billion requests per day. At Sun Microsystems, he architected
and built the Identity Connector Framework, which aggregated critical
security data into a cohesive solution enabling organizations to
mitigate risk and prove compliance.

Under Droste’s leadership, the Brinqa Technology Innovation Center will
focus on developing cutting-edge, high-performance solutions to the most
critical, data-intensive cybersecurity problems of today. He will drive
the next generation of innovations for the Brinqa Cybersecurity
Ecosystem, already the largest in the industry with more than 150
integrations to a variety of cybersecurity and business data sources,
making it the nervous system that supports and informs all of an
organization’s cyber risk decisions.

“Businesses continue to be attacked by bad guys who are only getting
smarter and using the move to cloud-based assets and applications as a
way to mask their patterns,” said Droste. “To protect against them,
organizations must bring teams, tools, and data together to facilitate
informed, knowledge-driven decisions. I have been impressed with how
Brinqa Cyber Risk Services leverage innovations in graph technology,
integrated ecosystems, and process automation to help businesses address
the risk and security complexities of today’s enterprise technology
environments. I am very excited about this opportunity to drive Brinqa’s
innovation strategy and technology ecosystem even further.”

Brinqa Cyber Risk Services were built for security; transforming
security, context and threat data into insights that empower
organizations to own their cyber risk. Brinqa Cyber Risk Graph – the
knowledge graph for cybersecurity – connects all relevant security and
business data, establishes a common risk language, and powers
cybersecurity insights and outcomes. Brinqa Cyber Risk Services apply
this knowledge to uniquely inform risk management strategies,
standardize security data management and analysis, improve communication
between teams, deliver actionable insights, and automate risk
