Since our $56M series B announcement in February, we’ve been laser-focused on building innovative new solutions, including PCI DSS and others to streamline security audits. As Secureframe rockets through this period of hypergrowth, we’re continuing to build our executive team with seasoned leadership that will help us scale and meet the global demand for our best-in-class automated compliance solution. 

Today, I’m excited to announce new hires for Chief Information Security Officer and VP of Engineering.

Drew Daniels joins us as Secureframe’s CISO. Drew is an information security expert with over two decades of experience as a CIO and CISO. He has led information technology, system/network operations, engineering, business intelligence, and security teams at world-class companies including Druva, Oracle, Microsoft, Shutterfly, and NetSuite. Drew is also an active angel investor with Silicon Valley CISO Investments, published author, board member, and strategic advisor. 

I’m also pleased to announce we have hired Cory Thomas as VP of Engineering. Cory joins us from Copper, and has spent nearly 20 years building SaaS applications and scaling large teams. At Xello, he grew the team 4x while establishing a strong culture of engineering best practices. As Director of Engineering at InVision, he led the delivery of InVision’s Cloud, Freehand, DSM, and Studio products along with numerous partner integrations. Now Cory’s leadership and expertise will help ignite our next phase of product innovation. 

These new leadership hires are the latest in a series of significant growth milestones for Secureframe. Apart from our $56 million Series B led by Accomplice, we experienced 10x ARR and 7x customer growth over the last year. We’ve also grown our team to 120+ employees across the US and Canada as we continue to scale. 

Everyone on the team is looking forward to working with Drew and Cory, and we are confident our customers will benefit from their expertise. From all of us at Secureframe, welcome to the team, Drew and Cory!
