Scott Armstrong to spearhead Qmulos’ cybersecurity product strategy after building, scaling, and leading nearly half a dozen successful high-tech growth companies

October 12, 2015

WASHINGTON D.C. Qmulos, a leading cybersecurity software firm, announced today the appointment of Scott Armstrong as its Chief Strategy Officer. In his capacity, Scott will lead corporate and product strategy, partnerships and alliances, and new market growth.

Armstrong joins Qmulos during a period of rapid growth and corporate evolution.  Self-funded and entirely privately held, Qmulos has doubled revenue every year since 2012 and re-invested most of it’s earnings into new product development. The firm recently announced its first two apps – Q-Compliance and Q-Audit – to automate, accelerate, and facilitate a security professional’s ability to improve an enterprise’s security to improve audit and compliance postures. These two apps are among the first releases in a strategic product roadmap that Scott will take ownership of in the coming weeks.

Scott comes to Qmulos with over 25 years of progressive experience in building, scaling, and leading high-tech growth companies. “He is one a kind. Scott is one of only a handful of Silicon Valley executives who, while living in the D.C. area, built a glowing record of success at the intersection of cybersecurity and innovation,” said Matt Coose, CEO and founder of Qmulos. “With him aboard, I’m even more confident that our security apps will affect transformative change, especially since he has the rare combination of technical product expertise and business acumen for every stage a company’s growth: startup to full maturity.”

Prior to Qmulos, Armstrong, led strategic initiatives for Symantec’s public-sector practices in cybersecurity, mobility, and cloud. He came to Symantec after its acquisition of Gideon Technologies, where Armstrong served as Vice President of Marketing and doubled revenues during his tenure. Armstrong has also held executive positions at Secure Elements (acquired by Fortinet), Mercator Software (acquired by Ascential Software), Aether Systems, and UUNET.

Armstrong earned a B.S. in Engineering, Operations Research from Cornell University.  Active in ISACA and the Technology Marketing Alliance, he also holds a patent in network security.
