Tony Pepper, CEO, Egress Software Technologies

Making data security as people-centric as possible by applying strong risk-based controls is the only way organizations can best secure data while also enabling employees to do their jobs, says Tony Pepper of Egress Software Technologies.

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2019 in San Francisco, Pepper discusses:

  • The risks posed to organizations by unstructured data;
  • What a more people-centric approach to security looks like;
  • The business benefits of more accurately gauging risk and applying authentication.

Pepper co-founded Egress Software Technologies in 2007 and currently serves as CEO. Previously, he held executive management and integration roles at Reflex Magnetics Ltd., Pointsec Mobile Technologies and Check Point Software Technologies.
