Alex Bender has been hired as chief marketing officer and John Mandel as senior vice president of engineering.

Each brings more than 20 years of cybersecurity experience and will support Invicti's rapid expansion, revenue goals and customer innovation roadmap.

"By bringing together two of the industry's most powerful brands, Netsparker and Acunetix, Invicti delivers the most modern AppSec platform in the market, and with more than 3,600 customers around the world relying on Invicti to secure their web applications, the company's reach is tremendous," Bender says.

"There has never been more opportunity for elevating the Invicti brand and supporting the vision of a world where organisations are able to secure their entire web application perimeter, faster, with more accuracy and at scale."

"I was drawn to Invicti because the technology is unmatched. Proof-Based Scanning provides vulnerability confirmation where it matters most and helps save organisations meaningful time and resources," Mandel says.

"As a previous end-user of scanning technologies, I know having the right tools in place is a critical first step for any organisation's AppSec program, and overall security posture. As we scale, I'm thrilled to continue to drive innovation within our DevSecOps platform to serve our customers around the world."

"Both Alex and John bring respective track-records for developing category leaders, deep cybersecurity experience, and a mindset of customer-centricity that will accelerate Invicti's dynamic growth even faster," Invicti CEO Michael George says.

"We have further enhanced our leadership team with additional world-class talent to accelerate product innovation to dominate our sector."
