He is also a board advisor for managing enterprise cybersecurity risk.
“Cloud security poses a new and different set of challenges compared to on-premises environments,” said Anand Singh. “Ermetic is addressing one the most complicated problems in the cloud, securing the complex relationships associated with entitlements, configurations and access.

It’s an exciting time to be joining the company as an advisor.”
