Nozomi Networks Inc, a provider in operations technology (OT) and Internet of Things (IoT) security, announced that Barmak Meftah has joined Nozomi Networks’ board of directors.

Barmak Meftah has more than 25 years of experience building enterprise software-as-a-service (SaaS) and cybersecurity companies. Most recently, he was president of AT&T Cybersecurity, a role he assumed after the acquisition of AlienVault, where he served for six year as president and CEO. During his two-year tenure at AT&T, he established the cybersecurity division, reporting directly to the CEO of AT&T Business, and grew revenue by double digits.

“Barmak’s impressive track record of success in Silicon Valley has gained him international respect as a pillar in enterprise security,” says Nozomi Networks CEO, Edgard Capdevielle. “His keen business instincts and depth of knowledge in security software and SaaS will be invaluable as we add cloud-based solutions to our product portfolio and accelerate market expansion and growth. We are ecstatic to welcome him to the board.”

“Nozomi Networks is leading the charge to ensure a secure future for critical infrastructure and industrial networks,” Meftah says, commenting on his board appointment. “IT/OT convergence and a growing reliance on AI-powered processes and IoT devices has created a flaming hot market for advanced security solutions that can help CISOs effectively span mixed networks, physical systems and IoT devices.

Nozomi Networks’ innovation agility, global team of experts and passion for customer success has quickly established the company as the premier provider of OT and IoT security and services. I look forward to helping Nozomi Networks take its business to the next level.”
