Abnormal Security is growing its presence across the SLED market, working with a number of state and local governments and higher education institutions to protect employees, students and the public from increasingly sophisticated attacks, including business email compromise, invoice fraud and ransomware.

“I’m thrilled that Zach Oxman has joined the team to lead this endeavor and know that his extensive background in SLED and his deep understanding of their specific needs will result in ongoing partnerships that result in better protection for these highly valuable agencies and institutions,” said Jake Yount, vice president of North America sales for Abnormal.

“It has never been more important to protect public funds and trust, and as the threat landscape changes radically, Abnormal is excited to partner with state and local government agencies, higher education institutions and K-12 school districts to simply and rapidly deploy a solution that stops bad actors and safeguards these organizations,” Yount added.

Oxman brings a deep knowledge of software-as-a-service solutions from his time with Snowflake, AppDynamics and Brocade, where he worked with hundreds of departments and agencies across dozens of states, as well as a number of higher education institutions and K-12 school districts. He has more than 13 years’ experience working directly with IT staff and directors, and he said he is looking forward to the opportunity to continue protecting the public sector.

“I joined Abnormal because I realize that this product works to really protect customers from high-profile threats,” Oxman told Industry Insider California, “and when something works, you want everyone to know about it. I look forward to showing Abnormal to the thousands of organizations who need a security platform like this to mitigate their risk, keep their employees safe, and protect the public from harm.”

Oxman, a Folsom resident, is a graduate of the University of California at Riverside, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in business economics. His past civic involvement includes volunteering with a local school foundation and with the Folsom Police Department.
