Nucleus Cyber Buys Security Sheriff, Welcomes Back Mueffelmann

Nucleus Cyber today announced a new purchase, which launches it into new markets, and a new CEO.

The AI-driven data security company bought the Cyxtera Technologies Security Sheriff platform. This solution employs artificial intelligence to secure file share, Office 365, and SharePoint environments. It adjusts file security dynamically based on real-time comparison of user context and file content to enforce data governance policies and enhance security.

Kurt A. Mueffelmann, the former CEO of Security Sheriff creator HiSoftware, has returned to Nucleus Cyber as CEO. He’ll bring along with him other members of the original Security Sheriff development and leadership team.

Mueffelmann in a letter today wrote: “The executive team has worked together since the early-2000’s across half a dozen successful global companies. Leigh Rowland, one of the original creators and developers of Security Sheriff, is our CTO and plans to drive the technology with an aggressive roadmap and integration plan. Irena Mroz a 20+ year cybersecurity marketer joins us a Vice President of Marketing, and Rob Bunn will be our CFO/COO.”

Mueffelmann has previously served as CEO of Cryptzone, Create!form International, and RealWorld. Nucleus Cyber talks about how this new leadership – as well as new domain expertise and investment – will help position the Boston-based company well for the future.

“Companies are making a mad dash for the cloud, and data integrity and security are falling to the wayside,” said Mueffelmann. “As Security Sheriff is AI-driven through its content and context aware engine, it empowers enterprises to automatically find, classify, and secure unstructured data. It allows for safer collaboration across the enterprise to better protect against breaches, sensitive data misuse, and unauthorized file access, to meet the expanding needs of a fast paced, intelligent workplace.”

Leveraging AI-based solutions to allow for improved security and compliance will be one of the key areas of focus at TMC’s (News - Alert) upcoming events AIOps Expo and The Adaptive & Intent-Based Networking Expo. These events will take place Jan. 30 through Feb. 1 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

AIOps Expo will provide a deep dive into how AI and machine learning can help ensure application performance, network performance, and security. It’s aimed at IT operations team leaders and members, business systems analysts, CRM and UC experts, network admins and engineers, performance management experts, process engineers, and service management team members.

The Adaptive & Intent-Based Networking Expo will talk about how AI- and ML-based carrier and enterprise networks can automate network operations, help network operators address the data deluge, allow for better scalability, enhance the security networks and applications, and support greater and faster innovation.
