BeyondEdge, Inc., a software-defined, edge compute company focused on advancing the transformation of the building and campus-wide networks via open and modular software solutions, today announced its CEO has been named to the Board of Directors for Building Cyber Security (BCS), the leading non-profit organization focused on improving and advancing the physical information and operational technology (OT) systems security, safety, and privacy in both the public and private sector.
BCS is a public/private partnership led by some of the most accomplished DoD current and past leadership, industry automation champion organizations, and key thought leaders in the cybersecurity space.
“Leading BeyondEdge for the past ten years, a company with a history of innovation and industry firsts, we selected Amir for his reputation in staying ahead of market needs by focusing on software and automation to deliver highly-available and secure access to technology solutions in the public and private sectors,” said Jason Lund, CEO of Building Cyber Security.
“This quest closely aligns with the BCS mission to improve and advance the cyber-physical security, safety, and privacy in the public and private sectors working with practitioners and our member companies, who represent the operational technology ecosystem, to develop and deliver market-driven options to companies and organizations.”
“Like BCS, we at BeyondEdge take a holistic approach in our technology solutions, delivering operational efficiencies, total automation, high-availability, and also protection from potential physical cyber vulnerabilities, which provides a greater tangible return on investment for our customers,” said Amir Elbaz, CEO of BeyondEdge.
“We go beyond the traditional approach to network design, management and financial models, developing and delivering solutions that are not limited by the vendor, product, or technology and include oversight and management of those systems while ensuring whatever technology we deploy today is ready for changes that will come with future innovations and vulnerabilities.”
Before joining BeyondEdge, Amir led several high-tech companies, including MobileSmith, a healthcare innovator providing turnkey mobile solutions that improve health outcomes, patient satisfaction, and adherence for the new generation of digital health consumers. Prior to that, he held several executive-level positions with investment funds in the U.S. and Europe, focusing on high-tech investments.
“I am excited to partner with Building Cyber Security leadership to advance the security and resiliency of operational technologies for some of the largest companies and the US Government,” commented Elbaz. “Building Cyber Security is at the forefront of OT security standards development to ensure no threats or disruption to our daily life.”
