Brian M. Ahern Takes the Helm to Expand Growth Opportunities

CyberMaxx’s new CEO Brian Ahern is a three-time CEO with over two decades of cybersecurity experience. He has a proven track record of leading and growing disruptive technology companies including Threat Stack, Inc. (acquired by F5), Industrial Defender, Inc. (acquired by Lockheed Martin), and Simulation Sciences, Inc.

“CyberMaxx and CipherTechs have been around for more than two decades and have each built an incredible team and industry-leading offerings,” said Brian Ahern, CEO of CyberMaxx. “Many companies today offer offensive or defensive solutions, but few have the full breadth we’ve brought together under a single umbrella. Bringing CipherTechs into the CyberMaxx family was a natural fit and strengthens our ability to proactively find vulnerabilities to create a strong defense for our customers. Taking a ‘hacker mindset’ provides the greatest protection for our customers and shapes our full spectrum of offerings.”

Expanded Capabilities Help Companies Stay Ahead of Modern Threats

The newly expanded CyberMaxx offers a comprehensive range of cybersecurity services, including offensive security services (Red team, Penetration Testing), defensive security services (Blue team, XDR/MDR), digital forensics/incident response (DFIR), and governance, risk & compliance (GRC) services. CyberMaxx supports cybersecurity and IT teams to identify and manage risk, provide breach remediation, and support both industry compliance and board governance programs.

“The shifting business mindset of cybersecurity as a cost center to a mission-critical business enablement program forces global companies to rethink their cybersecurity programs,” continued Ahern. “Our clients trust us to keep their organization secure and compliant so they can focus on what they do best – building their business.”

The company now has more than 400 customers in the healthcare, financial services, education, energy, hospitality, communications, and manufacturing industries. Customers include Hackensack Meridian Health, Barnes & Noble Education, and Omnicom Group.
