Director-level hires further security and compliance leader’s
commitment to securing the SMB
Varma joins ControlScan as senior director of security product strategy, a new role with primary responsibility for delivering managed security services that save business owners valuable time while cost-effectively protecting their businesses from data thieves. Varma’s wealth of security product management experience—including strategy and development of next-generation firewall, intrusion prevention and advanced malware protection solutions—ensures that he understands the unique needs ControlScan works to fulfill.
“ControlScan’s recent Level 4 merchant study found that most small business owners don’t utilize dedicated information security resources, and this puts them at a disadvantage from a vulnerability standpoint,” said ControlScan CEO
“Sheria has joined us at just the right time, because basic security missteps are causing SMBs—including franchisees and independent retailers—to come under fire from hackers,” said Herbig. “ControlScan’s sales team has always put security education and awareness first, but Sheria will take our team to the next level of coverage in these underserved merchant segments.”
In addition to its direct work with businesses of all sizes, ControlScan currently partners with more than 135 merchant service providers to extend its security and compliance solutions to over 2 million SMB merchants. ControlScan continues to actively hire in multiple areas and levels of its organization.
