Just three months after announcing that he would leave the firm he started, WhiteHat Security founder Jeremiah Grossman has joined endpoint security firm SentinelOne as chief of security strategy.

Armed with $40 million in funding to-date, SentinelOne describes itself as a company that is “dedicated to changing the face of endpoint security.”

Grossman, formerly Chief information Security Officer at Yahoo years ago, will be on a mission to “possess a deep understanding of the rapidly evolving threat landscape, understand the particular needs of the customer, and shape the design of technological and business defense strategies to help solve their most pressing issues.”

“At SentinelOne, our mission is to replace the ‘Old Guard’ of legacy antivirus software and provide organizations with a unique, standalone approach to endpoint security,” said Tomer Weingarten, co-founder and chief executive officer, SentinelOne. “Jeremiah brings decades of deep expertise to the team that will help us strengthen our technology to deliver innovations that truly meet the needs of today’s connected organizations.”

“Throughout my career, I’ve looked to solve the most critical security issues that are challenging organizations across the world,” said Grossman. “I’m thrilled to be joining SentinelOne to help them protect customers against today’s threats posed by all forms of malware, especially ransomware, as it has surged in 2016 and become increasingly popular among attackers . The company’s leadership team has done a tremendous job of developing an innovative technology that I look forward to helping build upon.”

Grossman, who lives in Hawaii, is also founder of the Web Application Security Consortium and a popular speaker across various security conferences.

Grossman recently spoke to SecurityWeek on a podcast to talk about the parallels between jiu-jitsu and computer security and the ongoing cat-and-mouse game between attackers and defenders. You can listen to the podcast here
