Netskope Brings On World-Renowned Industry Leaders to Lead Newly-Formed Platform Engineering Team

Industry veteran Joe DePalo and distinguished technical leaders who have helped build and scale the Internet join to develop platform engineering organization

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Mar. 28, 2019 – Netskope, the leader in cloud security, today announced the appointment of Joe DePalo as Senior Vice President, Platform Engineering. Joining the platform engineering team with DePalo are VP of Platform Architecture and Services Jason Hofmann; VP of Platform Engineering Jake Roersma; and VP of Infrastructure Patrick Bohannon.

The rise of cloud computing and microservices architectures has expanded the scope of cloud operations into a platform engineering function whose charter is to provide and support a platform or set of platforms on top of which services can be built. The Netskope platform engineering organization will be focused on building out the worldwide Netskope private cloud while continuing to work with the major public cloud providers, creating a unified platform that includes end-to-end monitoring, automated orchestration, and self-healing, optimized for resiliency and performance.

In addition to DePalo, Hofmann, Roersma, and Bohannon, the Netskope platform engineering organization has made dozens of additional strategic hires who have helped to scale the internet and launch and scale some of the world’s largest cloud services, carriers, CDNs and networks including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Level3 Networks, Limelight Networks, VMware, Twitch, DE-CIX, Microsoft and CenturyLink.

The organization will be chartered to design, build, and operate the current and future generations of the Netskope infrastructure and platform, spanning from core infrastructure including the global Netskope cloud network and data centers, and its connectivity to each and every region, person, and destination in the world.

“It’s an amazing time to be alongside the diverse, collaborative and accomplished Netskope team members across the world who continue to drive the world’s definitive security cloud,” said Sanjay Beri, founder and CEO, Netskope. “Digital transformation and the corresponding cybersecurity transformation are upending traditional data and network security markets and leading to an ever-increasing need for security built for the way we work today – this is what the Netskope Security Cloud was built for.  The addition of these highly skilled leaders and innovators to drive Platform Engineering is very exciting and key to us providing Netskope customers with the most secure, intuitive and holistic security cloud platform for their security needs now and in the future.”

DePalo will lead the platform engineering team. He was previously the global head of internet services for Amazon Web Services (AWS), where he was responsible for the AWS Global Network and the Amazon carrier strategy. Prior to AWS, he was SVP of operations and engineering at Limelight Networks. There, he and his team built the second-largest content delivery network in the world.

“I have seen the gaps in the cloud and web security market firsthand and am proud to join a forward-thinking team that is dedicated to delivering a product to customers that is both effective and innovative,” said DePalo. “Creating a cybersecurity solution that has the flexibility customers require is a large undertaking, and Netskope has brought together the best minds in the business to make it happen.”

Hofmann is a seasoned technology executive with 20 years of experience. As VP of Platform Architecture and Services, Hofmann joins Netskope to lead the platform architecture and platform services teams.  His team will also engage customers to ensure successful integration and continued success with the products and platform. He was previously at Limelight Networks, a global top-tier content delivery network, where he held key roles in R&D, product management, and professional services over the last 10 years. Most recently as VP of Architecture and as head of Product Management, Hofmann spearheaded strategic initiatives to improve customer satisfaction, quality, performance, efficiency, and profitability. Hofmann has innovated extensively in his field and currently holds five U.S. patents.

Roersma comes from a multidisciplinary background where he has held technical and leadership roles. As VP of Platform Engineering, Roersma will own the systems architecture, systems engineering, and DevOps organizations. His team will build, operate, and mature the end to end infrastructure that encompasses the Netskope platform. Another alumni of Limelight Networks, Roersma spent the last 10 years helping architect and develop a number of products and solutions, grow and mature the systems engineering team in operations, create and evolve the project management office, and ended his tenure as the head of Software Engineering.

As VP of Infrastructure, Bohannon joins Netskope to lead the network operations, network engineering and network architecture teams. His team will ensure the reliability and quality of the Netskope network, infrastructure, and platform as it continues to scale.  They are also charged with facilitating the rapid growth of the global network and infrastructure in order to meet existing and future market demands. He was previously on the Amazon Web Services business development team, where he was responsible for building, designing, architecting and engineering Amazon’s networks and connecting Amazon to the outside world. He also worked to design highly available, scalable networks that do not constrain growth and support internal customers and service owners’ innovation and scaling plans. He has also held roles at Cisco, Internet2, and NASA.
