“Danny has a wealth of expertise, coming from the military and

intelligence communities as well as leading large-scale, commercial

cyber threat intelligence operations. We are thrilled to have him lead

our Threat Research Team in delivering countermeasures and finished

intel to our products and customers,” said Nick Lantuh, President and

CEO, Fidelis Cybersecurity. “The threat intelligence derived by Danny

and the Team, along with the rich metadata, content and contextual

understanding that we capture from customer networks, cloud and

endpoints, are critical components to effectively hunt for threats

buried deep within your environment.”

Prior to joining Fidelis, Pickens served as a Director at Optiv where he

managed the Global Threat Intelligence Center and lead research for

managed security services. He spent the majority of his career within

the United States military and various divisions of the Department of

Defense and other U.S. Government organizations, working across the

tactical, operational and strategic-levels of intelligence and cyber

operations. He continues to serve in the U.S. Army Reserves as an

intelligence team Non-Commissioned Officer in Charge (NCOIC) where he

supervises the preparation and dissemination of all-source intelligence

products, intelligence summaries, forecasts, and assessments.

“The best cybersecurity is armed with true intelligence the work of

understanding threat motives to better predict and prevent malicious

activities,” said Pickens. “This intelligence is required for leaders to

make informed and good, judgement-based decisions. It has a role in

every industry, but the expectation and abilities in cyber threat

intelligence have evolved dramatically in the past few years, moving way

beyond a threat feed or blocking at the perimeter based on static

indicators. Fidelis is at the forefront of this evolution. I am thrilled

to join the highly-experienced team here, where we have such strong

technology supporting us and vision for the future.”

platform provides deep visibility while monitoring all traffic on all
