Jarret Raim named as new CISO for Mission

Mission, a managed cloud service provider, has announced Jarret Raim as its new CISO specialising in managing its Amazon Web Services provision.

Mission, a managed cloud service provider based in Los Angeles, has announced the appointment of Jarrett Raim to lead its Amazon Web Services security and compliance services.

Raim has over 10 years of experience in the sector having been a Director at Rackspace where he built the solution system into a $25 million annual business. More recently, he was Senior Director of Managed Services at Bitdefender where he built a state-of-the-art system that helped organisations reduce their business risk. 

Jonathan LaCour, Chief Technical Officer at Mission, said: “Jarret brings a wealth of cloud security knowledge to Mission, and is the perfect fit to lead our expanding services for AWS security and compliance. Mission continues to build out new managed offerings that directly meet customer demand in the constantly changing AWS ecosystem, and security and compliance is a huge part of that. Our customers know how important continual and proactive security is, but they also know first-hand how challenging it is to hire (and retain) that expertise. Our security and compliance practise are structured to provide customers with the most cost-effective way to achieve complete security and compliance on AWS, and we’re excited to welcome Jarret to scale this practice.”

The core of Mission's AWS security service is Mission MDR ( Managed Detection and Response ). The fully-managed cloud solution security solution allows customers to ensure their AWS is audit-ready, compliant and secure. MDR combines AWS-certified engineers with backing from Alert Logic's security analytics and certified SOC analysts to deliver a complete AWS security solution for all of its customers.

Raim said: “The past decade of my career has been acutely focused on helping customers achieve security and compliance requirements in the cloud. AWS is an incredible accelerator of cloud transformation, but few companies have the resources to be experts across every facet of its usage. The investment to expand our security and compliance offerings will join our cloud cost optimization, data science and machine learning, and other professional and managed cloud services in providing unmatched acumen and support to customers at any stage of their AWS journey. Mission has earned its reputation for achieving whatever cloud migration, modernisation, and optimisation goals that customers bring to us and I’m excited to now be part of the team.”
