Apptega CISO Wyman Lewis is Leading the Shift from Box Checking to Continuous Compliance

February 29, 2024

As a CISSP, SaaS cybersecurity veteran, and experienced IT leader, Wyman Lewis knows a thing or two about security and compliance. He’s held executive leadership positions with successful managed security providers such as Securonix and led security operations and compliance for multiple enterprise software companies, including eBay and Auctane.

So, he knows his stuff.

As our new CISO, he’ll be lending his expertise and 20-plus years of experience to helping partners rethink how they view and manage compliance. Having seen the business from the other side while running security and compliance for managed security providers, Lewis brings a client’s view to our business, creating more impactful partner engagements.

“We have an incredible opportunity to transform the mindset about compliance from a check-the-box exercise to a state of continuous improvement where security is always at the forefront,” Lewis says in a recent press release. “I joined Apptega because, of all the companies in this space, few if any are as well positioned to pair a continuous approach with a partner ecosystem that’s so well equipped to execute on that vision.”

And few security and compliance executives are so well equipped to guide those efforts. His leadership experience both in-house and on the provider side makes him a valuable resource to partners who are building lucrative compliance practices and to customers seeking to mature their security postures.  

Apptega will lean on Lewis to not only steer internal security but also guide partner compliance best practices for some of the most established global brands and managed security providers in the industry.

In recent months, we’ve added key members to our leadership ranks who collectively possess more than 80 years of experience building successful managed security companies. It’s part of a concerted effort to inject our team, culture, and product with deep industry expertise, bringing partner needs to the forefront of everything we do. Lewis provides yet another layer of leadership and insight into how we can best serve our partners.
