Bakshi, who has built leading solutions for prominent cybersecurity companies, will run product for Apptega’s provider-first continuous security & compliance platform

Apptega, the fast-growing SaaS company that builds continuous security & compliance solutions tailored for managed security providers, today announced that Rahul Bakshi will join its executive leadership team as chief product officer. 

Bakshi’s impressive track record in SaaS cybersecurity includes highly successful leadership roles guiding product strategy and development for category-leading managed detection and response (MDR) providers, as well as enterprise cybersecurity companies. He most recently served as chief product officer at eSentire, a global leader in MDR with 2,000+ customers, and, before that, as SVP of products for Securonix—a leader in SIEM, UEBA, security analytics and detection for the Global 2000 and service providers.

“We have an incredible opportunity to build security and compliance software solutions that empower managed security providers to deliver differentiated offerings that create new revenue lines, improve margins, and drive retention,” Bakshi said. “Instead of building another ‘check the box’ compliance tool, we can provide continuous, real-time security and compliance health and scoring through these partnerships.” Read his full introductory interview here.

Bakshi’s hiring is one in a recent string that represents Apptega’s all-in investment in deep cybersecurity expertise, as it has stacked its leadership ranks with veteran SaaS executives who collectively possess more than 80 years building world-class managed security companies.

“I’ve worked with few people in my career who are as passionate about creating world-class products that delight customers as Rahul,” said Dave Colesante, Apptega CEO who joined the company in November after successfully leading several high-growth cybersecurity companies. “I’m thrilled for Apptega, but I’m even more excited for our thousands of global partners and customers who’ll reap the rewards—in terms of a more powerfully intuitive security and compliance experience—from the platform Rahul and team continue to hone.”
