Steve Tchejeyan, who worked with Scott at Symantec and is currently the CRO at Forescout highlighted, “Symantec made strategic investments in acquiring several companies focused on securing our clients’ data in the cloud. Scott was instrumental in unifying our messaging and engaging with leadership at our clients, so they felt comfortable in our mission and our ability to execute.”
“I firmly believe that to provide world-class security services and solutions to our clients we need to be open to partnerships” Scott remarks. “Atlantic has a very strong internal security practice to include advisory services, managed services, security staffing, professional services, and architecture.
