    F5 Networks today announced that it has hired Mike Convertino as the company’s first Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), based in its Seattle headquarters.

    According to the company, Convertino’s first priority in the new position is the protection of company and customer assets and data. He will also play a lead role in the development of F5’s security product roadmap. Convertino started on January 18.

    “With our focus on application access, F5 holds a unique vantage point on security,” said Tony Bozzuti, senior vice president and CIO at F5. “We see the enormous risk applications are exposed to as users and data travel from device to data center and back again. What Mike Convertino brings to F5 is both deep experience and strong leadership to help our own operations, our partners, and our customers take the best advantage of our application-level security.”
