SKOUT CYBERSECURITY, a cloud-native cybersecurity provider for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), delivered by managed service providers (MSPs), today announced the appointment of IT security leader Tyler Winkler to its Board of Directors. As Vice President of Global Sales & Marketing at SecureWorks, Tyler played a vital role in the company’s rapid growth leading up to its 2011 acquisition by Dell for $650 million and 2016 IPO. In 2017, Tyler became CEO of MediaPRO a cybersecurity and privacy education business, and now serves as CEO of UserIQ, a customer success software company based in Atlanta.

“Tyler will play a key role in guiding our management team with our strategy to further enable our MSP partners to successfully use, market, sell and support today’s leading IT security solutions and services, and prevent cyberattacks. His wealth of go-to-market experience in the cybersecurity space is a huge asset to our board and company,” said Aidan Kehoe, Co-Founder and CEO of SKOUT.
