Joe Sullivan, the former Chief Security Officer (CSO) at both Facebook and Uber has been appointed as the new CSO at San Francisco-based internet security company Cloudflare.

Cloudflare provides cybersecurity that protects websites from external attacks, with its anycast capabilities enabling the firm to deploy the technology at scale across its network of connected data centres.

In a blog post entitled Why I’m joining Cloudflare¸ Sullivan stated the following:

“When I met the leadership team at Cloudflare, I was amazed to learn how what had started with a focus on mitigating denial of service attacks had grown quickly into so much more—because their strong technology not only makes internet properties safer, it makes them faster.

“Their product innovation mirrors my physical-world streets analogy—helping to build a better online infrastructure creates better and safer opportunities for everyone in the community.”

In addition to his time at Facebook and Uber, Sullivan worked for the United States Presidential Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity, as well as having been appointed as the Senior Director of Ebay’s Trust and Safety Department.

Sullivan left Uber after it was revealed that the company had disclosed a massive data breach that occurred in 2016.
