Sepio, the leader in Zero Trust Hardware Access (ZTHA), today announced the appointment of venture capitalist and cyber tech entrepreneur Lane Bess as Chairman of its Board of Directors, effective immediately. Bess, a Sepio investor who joined the advisory board in 2020, succeeds Tamir Pardo, former Director of the Mossad and president of XM Cyber, who served as Chairman for the past four years.

“I feel very privileged to take on this role at such a crucial time for the cyber security industry,” said Bess. “Demand for Sepio’s HAC-1 solution is rapidly growing because no other technology uses physical layer fingerprinting to provide risk management and full visibility into the infrastructure and identify rogue devices, which can be used to inject ransomware and malware and steal data.”

Lane Bess is the principal and founder of Bess Ventures and Advisory. He previously served as Chief Operating Officer of Zscaler Inc., an innovator and leader in Cloud-based Internet security services. Bess has spent over 30 years as an operational executive and has successfully launched start-ups and grown medium-sized businesses to large scale. Between 2008 and 2011, Bess was CEO of Palo Alto Networks. There, he led the late fundraising and scaled the company from early go-to-market to a revenue run rate exceeding $200 million prior to IPO.
