Choudhary previously served as the Chief Product and Technology Officer at VIPRE. In this expanded role, he will champion VIPRE’s mission to mitigate human risk through educational initiatives and cutting-edge technologies, with a vision to “democratize cybersecurity.” Choudhary’s focus will be on making the most advanced security solutions available to businesses of all sizes, and making cybersecurity the responsibility of all, not just a few experts.

We take pride in delivering industry-leading AI/ML-based advanced threat protection to all of our global partners and customers.”

Choudhary brings a wealth of experience to this new role. With a cybersecurity journey spanning back to 2002, he has played instrumental roles in architecting mission-critical cyber defense systems, contributed to the evolution of cyber security by developing patented technologies, and held technical leadership positions in the financial services industry.

Nate Simmons, president of Ziff Davis’ Cybersecurity and Martech division, expressed excitement about Choudhary’s leadership role: “VIPRE Security Group is a global organization protecting millions of consumers and businesses. Usman is a highly accomplished leader with a passion for helping our customers protect their organizations from cyber threats.
