Enterprise Security Executive Seth Robbins to Lead Global GTM as Demand for Decentralized Authentication Grows Worldwide

NEW YORK, April 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- HYPR Corp., the leading provider of enterprise-facing decentralized authentication solutions, announced today that industry veteran Seth Robbins has joined the company in the new role of Chief Revenue Officer. Seth is responsible for HYPR field operations, customer success and global go-to-market. News of Seth's appointment follows the company's announcement of a $10 million Series A funding round led by RRE Ventures with participation from Mastercard and Samsung.

"We're thrilled to have Seth Robbins join our team as CRO. His early success at RSA has solidified Seth as a pioneer and key operator in the identity and access management space among some of the world's most recognizable enterprises. Seth has a demonstrated ability to assemble high-performance teams that create and win markets while addressing customer needs across the globe. He and I share a vision for the future of authentication and I have no doubt that Seth is the right leader to execute on that vision," said George Avetisov, CEO and co-founder of HYPR Corp.

Robbins previously served as Vice President of WW Field Operations responsible for sales and all field operations including pre-sales and post-sales support at Fireglass, acquired by Symantec. Under his leadership, the company saw 400 percent growth from 2016 to 2017 and won numerous blue-chip customers. Prior to Fireglass, Robbins held the position of Vice President of Sales, NA East & EMEA for Bromium, Inc., a pioneer in isolation for defeating end user based advanced threats. He joined Bromium pre-revenue and during his tenure led its growth to $25 million in 2015. His sales team was responsible for 80 percent of the company's revenue and the majority of the customer acquisition, including some of the world's largest enterprises. Prior to Bromium, Robbins had a series of increasing responsibilities at RSA Security. Starting in 2005 with inside sales, account management and strategic account management, Seth's RSA tenure proved him one of that company's most successful sales contributors.

"The world's largest enterprises and their multi-million user populations are rapidly moving towards a password-less future. I embrace HYPR's vision that not only is this paradigm shift an inevitability, it is only possible with decentralized authentication. HYPR removes the hackers' primary target of user credentials from the enterprise, enabling a secure transition towards a password-less world," said Seth Robbins, Chief Revenue Officer of HYPR Corp. "HYPR is a sleeping giant that has industry leaders both investing in the company and successfully deploying the solution to millions of users. It's rare to find a team at this stage that has such a dominant market opportunity," he added.

Deploying HYPR has enabled some of the world's leading enterprises to remove the hackers' primary target – the centralized credential store.

"HYPR has effectively eliminated credential reuse and fraud by ensuring biometrics, PINs, passwords, bankcards and other credentials are securely decentralized across millions of user devices. This technology is key to enabling a secure transition towards a password-less future," added Robbins.

About HYPR

HYPR is the leader in decentralized authentication with millions of users secured across the Fortune 500. Named a "Cool Vendor" by Gartner in 2017, HYPR is trusted by major enterprises such as Mastercard and Samsung to prevent breaches, eliminate fraud, and accelerate transaction speeds.

As enterprises transition from passwords to biometrics, they often store user credentials in a centralized repository. Centralized authentication creates a single point of failure targeted by hackers and has remained the #1 cause of major data breaches — until now.

The HYPR solution ensures that personal credentials always stay safely decentralized and encrypted on users' devices. By eliminating the need for a centralized credential store, HYPR removes the target and minimizes the risk of a data breach. With HYPR, enterprises are changing the way millions of users experience secure password-less access to our connected world.

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through.

There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
