Stiennon is a widely published author, industry analyst, and former Vice President of research at Gartner. Stiennon has authored numerous books on the security industry, including “There Will Be Cyberwar” and “Up and to the RIGHT: Strategy and Tactics of Analyst Influence”.

“Steve and Richard bring a massive amount of experience and insight to Anitian,” said Andrew Plato, CEO of Anitian. “Steve knows the nuts and bolts of building a security company, and Richard has a deep well of insight into the trends, technologies, and talent shaping the cloud today. I am honored to collaborate with these titans of security.”

Anitian is on a mission to make security and compliance fast and easy. Anitian’s Compliance Automation platform is the first-of-its-kind technology that dramatically accelerates the compliance process.

“I have been through many compliance exercises in my career that created reams of documents, but little in the way of security,” said Stiennon. “Anitian has taken the power of the cloud and applied it to an almost intractable problem. In addition to shortening the compliance cycle, Anitian’s Compliance Automation platform provides real security value. I am excited to be part of this adventure.”

“As a CEO, I have experienced the frustration of product delays due to onerous compliance requirements. Anitian’s product eliminates this problem.” – Steve Shillingford

“Anitian’s Compliance Automation platform solves a huge problem,” said Shillingford. “As a CEO, I have experienced the frustration of product delays due to onerous compliance requirements. Anitian’s product eliminates this problem. It not only accelerates compliance efforts but also enables developers to build more secure, reliable cloud environments.
