Jay Coley’s 25 years of security expertise will add extra value for UK customers

 LONDON, 6th November, 2019 Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, today welcomed industry expert Jay Coley as its new UK Technical Director, with a mission to drive growth for the company and help customers secure their environments in an increasingly connected and volatile world.

Jay’s cybersecurity career started with an 11-year stint in the US Navy, during which time he took a degree in Computer Science and Information Technology.

A subsequent move into ISP network engineering was followed by stints at Prolexic Technologies to pioneer dedicated cloud DDoS mitigation. As leader of the firm’s Global Security Architect Team, Jay was instrumental in growing revenue from $11m to $70m within just four years.

Following an acquisition by Akamai, Jay led the firm’s Global Enterprise Security Architect team, managing and evangelizing its cloud edge technologies and growing the security business from $140m to over $350m.

“I’m always looking for new challenges and security technologies, and Trend Micro was a perfect fit for both,” says Jay. “Trend Micro’s vision, extensive security portfolio and amazing team proved irresistible to be a part of. I’m excited to help TrendMicro achieve its security goals and vision. Most importantly I’m looking forward to being part of the great ‘Trender’ team.”

Jay’s combination of commercial nous and undoubted technical expertise will be a fantastic addition to Trend Micro UK as the company continues its strong momentum into the final quarter of 2019 and beyond.

Trend Micro recently acquired Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) leader Cloud Conformity in a deal which will further extend its capabilities and leadership in securing customers’ cloud infrastructure.

Cloud Conformity provides visibility and control over public cloud environments from a single pane of glass, to support security, compliance and governance requirements. It’s already helping Trend Micro customers tackle one of the biggest challenges they face today: misconfigurations of infrastructure due to human error.
