BOSTON – SimSpace, a U.S.-based provider of high-fidelity cyber ranges, has announced Clint Sand as its new chief product officer (CPO), effective Feb. 21, 2024.

The company reported that Sand will play an instrumental role in spearheading SimSpace’s product management, content, design, and platform engineering teams as the company adds further AI/ML-based capabilities to their technology. SimSpace said that Sand’s strategic appointment strengthens its executive leadership team as the company looks to take its platform to the broader enterprise market.

"Clint joins the SimSpace C-suite with a proven track record of supporting the commercial growth initiatives of large companies. Boards are now making cybersecurity a central pillar of their investment strategy, and Clint’s appointment will serve to strengthen the product portfolio of our customers as CISOs and CEOs continue to make critical ROI decisions” said William Hutchison, CEO and co-founder of SimSpace. “The SimSpace executive team is looking forward to working with an engineer of Clint’s caliber, accelerating our growth trajectory and expanding into new markets.”

Sand has over 30 years of experience in cybersecurity products at companies like Malwarebytes, NortonLifelock, and most recently Corelight, where he led product efforts to serve the needs of sophisticated defenders while also delivering new software as a service (SaaS) offerings and innovations in AI to serve the needs of organizations of all maturity levels.

“Companies in every segment are increasingly aware that traditional approaches are letting them down, even as security spending continues to rise,” Sand explained. “By combining well-tested, complex network simulation techniques with new advancements in AI, SimSpace is uniquely positioned to drive the type of innovation that can change the game for threat hunters, incident responders, and SOC analysts, while enabling the CISO to make data-driven decisions about how to reduce spending without introducing new risks to the top line. I am thrilled to be placed at the epicenter of product development, providing customers with the data, analytics, and insights that will drive our top line through our next phases of growth.”
