Josh Horowitz Joins PasswordPing as Co-Founder and COO
PasswordPing Ltd., a leading provider of compromised password solutions, is pleased to announce that Josh Horwitz has joined PasswordPing as a co-founder and chief operating officer.
PasswordPing was created to help secure the essential password security layer for consumer websites and corporate networks. PasswordPing allows organizations to block unauthorized authentication in real time by validating logins against its multi-billion record, compromised credentials database. This technology leverages a patent-pending approach that, until now, was impractical for all but the largest of technology companies.
"Adding Josh to the management team is one of the key steps toward building our revenue and operations strategy. Josh's revenue management experience, technology background, and operational skills add to our already strong team. He will further advance PasswordPing to our next stage of growth and maturity. As an innovative, SaaS-based cyber-security company, PasswordPing and our customers will benefit immensely with Josh as a co-founder," commented Mike Wilson, founder and CEO of PasswordPing.
Josh has over 20 years of cross-industry experience as an entrepreneur and software executive. He has been in technology and revenue management positions for start-ups as well as the Fortune 500. Most recently, Josh founded Boulder Logic, a B2B SaaS customer-marketing platform. He grew the business from inception through profitability, to the sale in 2016.
"Credential stuffing and account takeover (ATO) attacks are increasingly becoming serious issues, putting corporate networks at risk and costing billions annually in fraud. This is mainly due to users reusing passwords across multiple sites, coupled with the ease with which cybercriminals can obtain large lists of compromised credentials. This means that even if your organization has not been directly breached, your users' accounts can still be easily hacked if they reuse passwords. Any company, non-profit, or government agency with online account access can benefit from PasswordPing's solutions, which I believe will become the industry standard for proactively protecting website login forms and corporate directory services, such as Active Directory," says Josh Horwitz, co-founder of PasswordPing.
PasswordPing's innovative compromised credential and breach notification services were created to protect corporate networks and websites from unauthorized access and fraud. PasswordPing helps organizations screen user accounts for known, compromised credentials and block unauthorized authentication.
