QTS fills the new Cyber Security Chief position

They have become one of the first data center service providers to accommodate the new position

QTS has appointed Andrew Wild as the Cyber Security Chief of their company. He was formerly the chief security officer at Lancope, a Georgia-based information security company acquired by Cisco last September.

The new appointment makes QTS one of the first data center service providers to appoint a Chief Information Security Officer. Jon Greaves, QTS CTO, explained in a statement that the company decided to invest in the new position because security threats are “evolving day by day.”

QTS also provides a variety of managed and cloud services in addition to raw data center capacity. QTS being a managed service and cloud provider, says that it is necessary for them to have a bigger need for in-house cyber security expertise than the other data center providers.

Before his tenure in Lancope in 2014, Wild served as CSO at Qualys, a cybersecurity firm that went public in 2012. Before Qualys, he was manager of information security engineering at EMC.
