Former GE, WhiteHat Security, HPE Security, and Malwarebytes Executive to Lead the Company’s Product Vision and Innovation
Fulton, MD ‒ April 26, 2021 ‒ SightGain, the only cybersecurity risk management platform that analyzes organizational readiness – across people, processes and technology – to stop breaches, today announced the appointment of Michael Right as Vice President of Product.
“Michael’s expertise in championing innovative cybersecurity products and driving product growth is a tremendous asset to the SightGain team,” said Christian Sorensen, Founder and CEO of SightGain. “He is uniquely qualified for scaling the product team and increasing the value SightGain’s product delivers. With a deep background in product management and cybersecurity experience, I’m thrilled to welcome such a visionary product leader to join us in our mission of ensuring customers are ready to protect against cyber threats.”
Michael brings over a decade of product expertise engaging customers, managing product strategy, and operating in high-volume organizations to his new role at SightGain. Most recently, he held the role of Vice President of Solutions Architecture for SecureCircle, a leading zero-trust data security solution for endpoints. Prior to SecureCircle, Michael spent three years at Malwarebytes as the Head of Cloud Product Management, where he helped quadruple new business growth. Before Malwarebytes, Michael was at Hewlett Packard Enterprise Security as the Senior Product Manager for Fortify products, where he managed and innovated three existing and two new products that resulted in over $50M in additional revenue per year.
In addition, Michael has been a product influencer and leader for WhiteHat Security and General Electric. He is a Certified Ethical Hacker, Certified Secure Software Lifecycle Professional, and Six Sigma Green Belt. Michael has played an active role in the software security industry and holds a bachelors of Science in Information Technology from Florida International University.
“I’m honored to be joining the SightGain team at such an imperative time for cybersecurity risk management,” said Michael Right. “CISOs face an impossible task as threats continue to proliferate and must address constantly shifting threats without knowing how their teams and technology are performing. SightGain is in an enviable market position as the industry’sindustries first continuous readiness platform that’s transforming the way cybersecurity risk is managed. I’m looking forward to furthering the development of SightGain’s offerings and continuing to drive the company’s vision to dramatically improve how cybersecurity leaders manage risk.”
SightGain is the only risk management solution focused on cybersecurity readiness. Unlike typical cybersecurity risk management IRM solutions that estimate readiness using industry benchmark data and compliance checklists, SightGain tests and measures readiness using real-world attack simulations in a customer’s live environment. These results are used to make improvements across cybersecurity people, process, and technology. Once current readiness is tuned, SightGain combines empiric readiness data with business information and threat intelligence to build the business case to prioritize long term investments.
