Duncan Greatwood is CEO of Xage, the zero trust real-world cybersecurity company that specializes in preventing hacks on critical infrastructure. The company’s underlying technology, the Xage Fabric, accelerates and simplifies the way enterprises secure, manage and transform digital operations across OT, IT, and cloud.
Duncan works with some of the largest energy, utilities, renewables, defense and manufacturing companies in the world – including US Air Force, US Space Force, ComEd, and more critical businesses to help them implement zero trust. Duncan also works closely with the majority of the top half dozen pipeline operators in the US to prevent hacks and comply with federal security guidelines without ripping and replacing the equipment they rely on every day.
Duncan is an expert in the zero trust security model and can speak to why it’s needed in today’s growing threat landscape. He can provide a knowledgeable perspective on topics such as zero trust remote access, identity-access management, multi-layer multi-factor authentication (MFA), and discuss why they are crucial in protecting OT environments from devastating hacks.
Prior to Xage, Duncan was an executive at Apple. He holds a B.A. (Mathematics) and M.Sc. (Computer Science) from Oxford University and an M.B.A. from London Business School.
The edge is just as vulnerable and strategic as the center. If, say, Russian hackers breach the edge, they can quickly begin to compromise data and propagate attacks to different control systems.30 August 2019
