Application security provider WhiteHat Security has announced the appointment of former Gartner research vice president Joseph Feiman as its new Chief Strategy Officer.
In this role, Feiman will report directly to WhiteHat’s CEO, Craig Hinkley, and will be responsible for the company’s business strategy going forward.
“We are proud to welcome Joseph, who originated the very market we thrive in, to WhiteHat,” said Hinkley. “Joseph knows market challenges and what is needed to mitigate them, inside and out. Therefore, his decision to join our team is a testament to all we’ve worked towards. With his expertise, we are in an ideal position to reach more businesses in need than ever.”
Applications are the crown jewels of all organizations. They run all of our business and social lives. Yet, application security is still often overlooked.

Feiman joins the company from Veracode (acquired by CA Technologies), where he was Chief Innovation Officer. Prior to that he was with Gartner for 18 years, and while there co-founded the application security market category, and was instrumental in defining the terms used in this space.
“I have watched the company grow over the last 12 years, and I look forward to building on its success,” he said, regarding his move to WhiteHat Security.

“Applications are the crown jewels of all organizations. They run all of our business and social lives. Yet, application security is still often overlooked in both the development and operation stages,” said Feiman. “WhiteHat is one of the few players in the market that empowers DevSecOps and contributes to the high security of applications. The best vendors must offer multiple technologies and deliver them as a service, hardening application defenses and making testing quick and seamless over the internet. This is precisely what WhiteHat delivers.”
