Synchronoss Technologies Inc., based in Bridgewater, added Stanley Lowe to its executive management team as chief information security officer.
In the April 13 announcement, Synchronoss — which specializes in cloud, messaging and digital products and platforms — said Lowe will report to Chief Technology Officer Patrick Doran.
Lowe brings more than 20 years of experience in information security and cybersecurity to the role. Most recently, he was global chief information security officer at Zscaler, a cloud-based security company. He has also held executive security positions in industries such as life sciences, management consulting and government – including his position as deputy assistant secretary for information security at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, where he led information security and privacy operations for more than 1.8 million devices and 700,000 users.
“As a provider of cloud-based solutions serving millions of customers across industries, we value cybersecurity, risk mitigation, and compliance as critical to our business,” Doran said in a statement. “Stanley brings a broad range of experience from many organizations, having supported large-scale enterprise security initiatives. We look forward to leveraging his depth and level of experience as Synchronoss continues to expand its offerings.”
At Synchronoss, Lowe will be responsible for safeguarding the company’s customer-facing digital assets, including the personal cloud, messaging and digital products as well as IT infrastructure and endpoint security. He will also expand the zero-trust security methodology across all systems and environments to mitigate potential risks.
“Today’s enterprises require a multi-faceted approach to security to mitigate risk of internal and external vulnerabilities as well as IT governance and compliance,” Lowe said. “As Synchronoss continues to introduce new products and scale its operations, I look forward to continuing the implementation of a robust enterprise security strategy and framework.”
