Miami, FL – Feb. 14, 2022 – Appgate (OTC: APGT), the secure access company, today announced the appointment of Leo Taddeo as Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) and President of Appgate Federal Division.

He will report directly to Appgate CEO Barry Field.

“The White House’s mandate that federal organizations fortify their cyber defense by moving to a Zero Trust architecture represents a seminal moment in U.S. cybersecurity. I’m excited by the tremendous opportunity this holds for Appgate, a recognized leader that has long advocated this modern approach to security, whether for the public or private sector,” said Leo Taddeo, CISO, Appgate, and President, Appgate Federal.

“Few know the security needs of government agencies and their employees better than Leo. His hands-on experience, leadership skills and deep understanding of the federal arena are unparalleled. We could not be more pleased to welcome him to the Appgate team as we continue to expand our portfolio of Zero Trust security solutions to meet our customers’ toughest challenges,” said Barry Field, CEO, Appgate.
