Aron McGrane joins EdgeWave as the director of customer success. McGrane has more than 15 years of experience in technical support, holding previous positions with Forcepoint and Websense. His appointment enhances EdgeWave’s customer service program and strengthens the company’s commitment to securing clients from malicious network intrusions.
“As businesses and government organizations struggle to balance risk, usability and price in their fight against ever-increasing cyber threats, we at EdgeWave are accelerating our efforts to mitigate those risks and reduce costs and complexity through products like ThreatTest,” says EdgeWave CEO Lou Ryan. “A big part of this effort includes hiring these three outstanding executives. We’re excited to utilize their talents as part of our strategic growth in 2018.”
The new executive hires follow the launch of EdgeWave ThreatTest, an automated phishing email incident response service that empowers end users to seamlessly report suspicious emails for threat investigation, in real-time, with the click of a button. Using machine learning and human analysis, ThreatTest rapidly delivers the results of the threat investigation directly to the employee, indicating whether or not it’s safe to open the email. If a threat is detected, ThreatTest globally removes the malicious message from the inbox and notifies IT administrators.

Our multi-layered Email Security Platform provides unparalleled predelivery protection, postdelivery detection and incident response to secure inboxes from today’s proliferating messaging threats like ransomware, spear phishing, business email compromise and more.
