Anjuna Security Expands Executive Team

Anjuna Security, the Confidential Cloud company, today announced it is accelerating its go-to-market capabilities in the fast-emerging confidential computing market with the arrival of four seasoned industry executives. Former Zscaler executive Manoj Apte has joined the company’s Board of Directors, and seasoned professionals Kim del Fierro and Greg Dennison are joining the executive team. In addition, Mark Cranney will be supporting Anjuna as a go-to-market advisor.

Confidential Computing is a growing technology, already widely available, that protects data and applications in public cloud servers, enabling it to be completely isolated. It is now supported by Amazon AWS, Microsoft, Google Cloud, and other providers, as well as the leading CPU and server companies. The Anjuna Confidential Cloud software is unique because it enables organizations to easily implement Confidential Computing technologies without the need to modify applications or IT processes and provides seamless deployment across various cloud environments. 

Prominent Zscaler Executive Added to Board of Directors

Manoj joins the Board of Directors to solidify and expand Anjuna’s market penetration strategy. He most recently served as the Chief Strategy Officer at Zscaler where he was responsible for defining the company’s product and directions. Over his 13-year tenure, Manoj ran product management, sales engineering, engineering and operations, marketing, sales enablement, and training and developed critical customer and technology partner relationships. In that time, Zscaler grew from zero to almost a billion in revenue.

Anjuna enables organizations to ensure their data is fully isolated from insiders, third parties, and attackers in public cloud infrastructure, even when commonly shared with other cloud customers. This creates a Zero Trust posture for companies using the cloud today or those looking to migrate to cloud computing—allowing them to keep their data completely private within the public cloud with zero risk.

Joining the executive team are Kim del Fierro, as Anjuna’s Chief Marketing Officer, and Greg Dennison as Vice President of Sales. Mark Cranney will also be supporting Anjuna as a Go-To-Market Advisor.
