CrowdStrike's Dmitri Alperovitch Recognized As An Honoree Of MIT Technology Review's Annual Innovators Under 35 List

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Aug. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, MIT Technology Review revealed its list of the top 35 young innovators ( http://www.technologyreview.com/innovators-under-35/) for 2013, and CrowdStrike's Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Dmitri Alperovitch (@DmitriCyber on Twitter) has been honored as an outstanding entrepreneur for his work in the field of cybersecurity.  For over a decade, the global media company has recognized this "35 Innovators Under 35" list of exceptionally talented technologists whose work has great potential to transform the world.

"I'm greatly honored to be included on this year's list of top technology innovators," said Alperovitch. "Today companies, governments, non-profit organizations and political activists from around the world face an onslaught of attacks from nation-state and other well-resourced determined adversaries. As I first said in the Shady RAT report in 2011 which detailed a five year long intrusion operation by the 2 nd Bureau of the 3 rd Department of the People's Liberation Army's (PLA) General Staff (also known as Unit 61398), the theft of intellectual property from Western companies by organized Chinese intrusions could very well comprise the largest transfer of wealth in history. This sentiment has since been repeated by General Alexander, Director of NSA and Cyber Command and other US government officials. That was my primary motivation and passion for starting CrowdStrike – to change the existing security paradigm of reliance on failing passive defenses and to focus on a combination of new big data active defense technologies and adversary-centric intelligence to raise the cost and risk to the adversary and protect the intellectual property and trade secrets that are the crown jewels of our knowledge-based economy."

Alperovitch is the co-founder and Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of CrowdStrike Inc., a security technology company focused on identifying and preventing damage from targeted attacks. As CTO, Alperovitch leads CrowdStrike's intelligence, research and engineering teams as they continue to develop the most advanced threat intelligence offering available today. Alperovitch is widely recognized as one of the top computer security researchers across the industry and as a thought-leader on cybersecurity policies and state tradecraft. 

Prior to founding CrowdStrike, Alperovitch was the Vice President of Threat Research at McAfee, where he led the company's global Internet threat intelligence analysis. In 2010 and 2011, Alperovitch led the global team that investigated and brought to light Operation Aurora, Night Dragon and Shady RAT groundbreaking cyber espionage intrusions and gave those incidents their names. He is currently a Senior Fellow at Atlantic Council's Cyber Statecraft Initiative and has served on the board of Georgia Tech Information Security Center (GTISC) Industry Advisory Board. Alperovitch also serves on the RSA Conference Advisory Board, the world's largest information security conference. In 2011, he was the recipient of the prestigious Federal 100 Award for his contributions to federal information security.  In 2013, he was recognized as one Washingtonian's Tech Titans for his accomplishments in the field of cybersecurity.
