Helping Enterprises of All Sizes Accelerate Their Security Journey

By Elliot Anderson  |  September 24, 2023

Change is the only constant in the IT security space. Here at Netsurion, we strive to empower organizations to take on ever-evolving cyber threats regardless of the size and scope of their business operations. With this core mission in mind, we are proud to introduce John Addeo as our new Chief Revenue Officer. He is equipped with over 20 years of Enterprise IT business experience and an impressive history of jumpstarting channel growth at cybersecurity and IT companies including Rapid7 and Red Hat.

Q: John, what inspired you to join Netsurion’s leadership team?

A: I want to start by saying that I am thrilled to be part of such a talented team. Through my time in the cybersecurity industry, I’ve been able to reflect on just how important managed security solutions are for companies regardless of their vertical market or security maturity. Joining Netsurion gives me an opportunity to dig into the big issues that prevent organizations from improving their security posture, namely, the struggles of attracting and retaining skilled cybersecurity expertise, technology challenges in deployment and ongoing management, and the high cost of attack surface protection. I’m excited to showcase Netsurion’s top-notch managed extended detection and response (XDR) as a solution to those problems. Cybersecurity protection is not the core of most companies’ offerings, and as organizations are more aware of the need the biggest obstacle is how to start and where to go for help. We want to make sure organizations know we are here to help solve these complex challenges and protect their company. There’s a big opportunity to simplify security and make it affordable and I’m happy to lead Netsurion’s efforts. 

Q: What are you most looking forward to in your new role as CRO?

A: I’m really looking forward to helping our customers and partners address real-world challenges. We give them the cybersecurity expertise and tools they need to protect their business. We also have a great partner program that allows MSPs and MSSPs to leverage our resources to offer managed XDR services to their own customer base. Ultimately though, I’d like to expand both our channel and sales offerings even further by tapping into the needs of solution providers who want to help their clients solve complex security challenges and leverage an award-winning managed security offering. We can help them build their business by giving them the power to start customers on their journey toward security maturity.

Discussions about cybersecurity are in boardrooms without a doubt. A data breach can cost companies millions of dollars and disrupt operations, so this is a business problem as much as it is a cyber problem. Netsurion sponsored a recent CyberEdge report which found that 85% of organizations suffered from a successful cyber attack last year and 63% of ransomware victims paid hackers to get their data back. Netsurion partners are solving customers’ cybersecurity challenges on the front lines, and we want to ensure they have the tools and support needed to lead the charge.

Q: In closing, what message would you like to convey to current and prospective customers and partners?

A: I believe the primary goal of any great CRO is to create a strategy to facilitate meaningful, lasting relationships with our customers and partners. The cyber threat landscape is more complex than ever before, and we recognize that cybersecurity solutions must be tailored to the risks, goals, and attack surface of each organization. Whether you’re a small business, a healthcare organization, an MSP, a larger enterprise, or a partner, we can help you predict, prevent, detect, and respond to escalating cyber threats. I’m delighted to be able to help drive cross-functional alignment and agile execution in this rapidly changing technological world.
