Foreground Security Names Jeffrey B. Mauro Director of Operations

HERNDON, Va., April 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Foreground Security, a cutting-edge cyber security consulting firm that offers an advanced set of cyber hunting and analytics capabilities, today announced it has named Jeffrey B. Mauro as its Director of Operations. Mauro is a veteran program management professional with more than 30 years of mission-focused leadership, business development and systems engineering experience across government and private industry. His expertise adds to Foreground's management team and total capabilities as the company supports a diverse, rapidly expanding array of customers requiring high-end defenses against sophisticated cyber threats and related business risks.

"Jeff is an outstanding addition to our team and personifies Foreground's unique advantage and capabilities in supporting sensitive customers' demanding security programs," said Foreground's President and CIO, David Amsler. "The professionals and rich experiences behind Foreground's unique blend of customized security intelligence, investigation and managed security services are what help our clients maximize existing security investments, slash response times and avert costly threat impacts. Jeff's firsthand leadership overseeing demanding, complex IT and national security programs benefits both our team and customers across the board."

"Foreground is uniquely positioned to extend a lead in designing, building and managing sophisticated cyber defenses - stopping what security products and traditional service providers are hard-pressed to effectively defend against," added Mauro. "The close integration of Foreground's analysts, intelligence and managed security services infrastructure make the company a very attractive destination for me and other professionals committed to supporting sensitive customers and operational requirements."

In his new role, Mauro is responsible for overseeing Foreground's day-to-day operating activities, including strategic leadership of overall operations, supporting professional services and financial goal management. He joins Foreground's team as the company grows rapidly to meet demand for its training, consulting and Virtual Security Operations Center (V-SOC) services. Foreground's V-SOC picks up where MSSPs leave off by adding innovations in all phases of customer engagement and service delivery. In return, Foreground customers maximize returns on their existing security investments and take back control of their security events and logs while receiving protection from the most intricately-conceived threats.

Mauro is a former Senior Program Manager at GCI, Inc. in Chantilly, VA, where he led teams of engineers and scientists supporting contracts and programs for a variety of U.S. Department of Defense and Intelligence Community customers. He previously served as a Program Manager and Technology Director for the U.S. National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) and as an Aerospace Engineering Duty Officer, Engineering Test Flight Officer and Patrol Plane Mission Commander in the U.S. Navy.
