SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 9, 2018 — Expanse, the first company to provide real-time monitoring of the entire global Internet for customers’ assets, has hired industry veterans, Greg Toto and Kevan Dunsmore, to lead its product and engineering teams, respectively.
Greg Toto joins Expanse from Apteligent (acquired by VMWare), where he led product and development. Before that, he led product, development and engineering teams for a number of successful enterprise technology companies including BigFix (acquired by IBM). As vice president of product at Expanse, Toto’s role is to lead the organization in determining markets served and products built, as well as sales strategy.
Kevan Dunsmore joins Expanse from VMWare, where he led engineering for the Apteligent team through its acquisition and integration into VMWare. Before that, he drove architecture for enterprise products for Nuance Communications and lead architecture for SaaS at Sabrix (acquired by Thomson Reuters), among others. As vice president of engineering at Expanse, Dunsmore’s role is to scale and lead a team that delivers the software required for Expanse’s growth and complexity.
“We’re excited to have Kevan and Greg join the team to ready our product and platform for greater scale,” said Tim Junio, Expanse CEO and cofounder. “We already monitor 10 percent of the global Internet for very large corporate and government customers, mostly for cybersecurity. Now we need to build out complete enterprise workflows to empower IT operations and asset management teams. We’re also constantly slicing down the time to alert; our customers demand speed as adversaries increasingly automate their attacks.”
Expanse recently announced a $37 million contract with the U.S. Department of Defense. The contract was awarded by the U.S. Navy’s Space and Warfare Command after the Department of Defense validated Expanse’s commercial software. Expanse is now recognized among a small handful of cybersecurity providers, with DoD making its software accessible department-wide.
Expanse also works with elite enterprise customers including Allergan, CVS, Fluor and PayPal, among others.
Expanse launched its first product in 2016. Its platform is the first to index the entire global Internet in real-time, giving corporate and government customers a comprehensive view of their extended, constantly-changing network edge and the ability to block machine-speed threats. This can include so-called “Shadow IT” in cloud services, regional offices violating policy, employees taking privileged equipment off-premise, and more.
Investors include New Enterprise Associates, TPG, Institutional Venture Partners and Founders Fund. For more information on Expanse, go to www.Expanse.com.
