Security Pioneer Taps Former Gannett SVP of Products Kristen Yerardi to lead product as company enters period of hypergrowth
WALTHAM, Mass – March 11, 2021 – Randori, the pioneer in continuous red teaming, today announced the appointment of Kristen Yerardi as Vice President of Product. Her addition comes as the company continues to strengthen its executive leadership team to meet growing customer demand for its Attack Surface Management (ASM) and Continuous Automated Red Team (CART) offerings.
“We started Randori to help security teams better understand their real-world risk. Critical to this is ensuring every company has access to the attacker’s perspective,” said Brian Hazzard, Randori co-founder and CEO. “Kristen brings a wealth of experience in customer-centric product development to Randori. This experience is invaluable, as we work with our customers to put the attacker’s perspective to work.”
Yerardi, former Senior Vice President of Products at Gannett (NYSI: GCI), has 20 years of experience leading and building product and customer success teams, having held similar roles at WordStream, Isobar, and Molecular. At Randori, Yerardi will oversee all aspects of our product, design, and customer success.
“I could not be more excited to join the Randori team. Cybersecurity is one of the most important and challenging problems facing our society today,” said Kristen Yerardi, Randori vice president of product. “Every security leader deserves to have a clear assessment of their cyber risk, but that’s simply not possible with today’s solutions. Randori is uniquely positioned to solve this critical gap and I’m excited to lean in with the team as we look to bring our trusted adversary approach to the mass-market.”
“We want to empower our customers to move their programs forward and reduce risk — to do that, we need to lean in and deeply understand where they are today,” said David “moose” Wolpoff, co-founder and CTO of Randori. “Kristen brings proven leadership and a strong customer focus to Randori that will ensure we are building highly impactful products our customers love.”
