Threat intelligence industry leader will help company advance vision and accelerate innovation
RESTON, VA — June 29, 2016 — ThreatQuotient™, a leading provider of enterprise-class threat intelligence platforms, today announced that Jonathan Couch has joined the company’s executive team as vice president of strategy. Couch, a pioneer in threat intelligence, brings extensive experience with how enterprises struggle to translate vast amounts of cybersecurity data into actionable threat intelligence. In his role, Couch is responsible for collaborating with ThreatQuotient’s partners and customers to better secure and enable their business, and defining product and technology plans that will directly impact the company’s software roadmap and strategic partnerships.
Prior to joining ThreatQuotient, Couch was co-founder and vice president for iSIGHT Partners, a cyber threat intelligence firm formed in 2007 and acquired by FireEye in 2016. Couch holds a degree in Electrical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and has over 20 years of experience in information security, information warfare and intelligence collection. He is an expert in leading advanced cyber warfare, cybersecurity, information operations and policy. He served in the Air Force at the National Security Agency, the Air Force Information Warfare Center and in Saudi Arabia for the Joint Task Force. After the military, Couch led a 25-member research and development team at Sytex Inc., later acquired by Lockheed Martin’s Advanced Technology Labs in 2005.
“Threat intelligence is one of the most important aspects of any security architecture. Unfortunately, impactful and timely use of this data has been limited to a few of the most sophisticated organizations,” said Couch. “I am pleased to be a part of an organization that understands this dilemma and has built a platform that enables organizations of all sizes to make fast and informed decisions that are customized to their unique environments.”
