Speaking about the challenges that industries like healthcare, government, and financial services face, Millington says, “Industries such as healthcare, government and financial services are faced with enormous security risks and have very unique requirements, priorities and use cases. I am eager to help IGEL accelerate market penetration by evangelizing the critical value IGEL brings to these core vertical industries as they rely on IGEL OS to solve security and accessibility challenges in the evolving hybrid work environment.”

This appointment comes at a pivotal time as businesses across sectors are grappling with the complexities of security and accessibility amid a rapidly evolving work landscape.
