ThetaRay Launches US Office and North American Push

Israeli big-data analytics specialist ThetaRay has announced the opening of a US office in New York. 

ThetaRay focuses on using big-data analytics for unknown threat and risk detection. ThetaRay was founded by two mathematicians who devoted a decade of academic research to developing an analytical platform and threat detection solutions for the protection of critical infrastructure, financial institutions and other industry sectors. Requiring no rules, heuristics or signatures, the mathematically-based platform and layered solutions uncover zero-day attacks, hidden APTs, operational faults, fraud and other threats by simultaneously analyzing all security and operational data sources instantaneously.

“We are seeing increasing demand among US companies for operational risk solutions that can identify even the most sophisticated attacks,” said ThetaRay CEO Mark Gazit.

Kris Robinson, a 30-year tech industry veteran, is joining as EVP of the Americas to lead the US effort. She will help ThetaRay grow and support its customer base in North America. “I have worked with analytics across a wide spectrum of technologies, and am impressed by ThetaRay’s method of harnessing big data to protect financial institutions and critical infrastructure from unknown threats,” said Robinson. “I look forward to helping the company expand its presence and customer base in the US. The application of ThetaRay’s anomaly-based solutions also presents an exciting new way to identify and optimize new opportunities across a range of industries.”

Robinson previously served as vice president of several divisions at the Hewlett-Packard Co.  She has also held VP positions with NCR/Teradata Corporation. An honors graduate in sales and marketing from the University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business, she holds an MBA from Georgia State University.

 Gazit added, “With her big data/analytics expertise and stellar sales record, Kris Robinson is the perfect candidate to help us build our US business.”
