Ernie Tkac Joins as CRO: “We are in the next phase of DNSFilter”

As I officially wrap up my third week at DNSFilter, I wanted to share a little bit about what brought me to the company and why I’m excited to be here.

I take immense pride having worked in cybersecurity for over 20 years. This has real meaning; Contributing to stopping the bad guys. And I’m happy to continue my cybersecurity journey with DNSFilter as CRO.

Prior to DNSFilter, I was the Vice President of Commercial Sales at Centrify. Before that, I spent 7 years in leadership roles at SailPoint, which was a tremendous learning experience. I came into a startup with over 200 employees and left a public company with over 1,000. I am proud to have been part of that journey. I believe DNSFilter is primed for similar success with the most innovative DNS security solution on the market, unparalleled leadership and investors, along with a great team culture. 

I’ve had the privilege of being a part of some of the best companies in the cybersecurity industry. DNSFilter has that same look and feel. We have the right people, culture, and technology.

I’m here to leverage my experience and support DNSFilter as we scale to be the premier DNS cybersecurity leader. Over 15,000 organizations across the globe already trust DNSFilter to protect and secure their businesses, users, and endpoints. We are in the next phase of DNSFilter: Expanding to create a more robust, enterprise-class solution. 

Our success to date has come through various channels along with the guidance of our world-class investors Insight Partners and Arthur Ventures

My first three weeks have been jam-packed, as you can imagine. But I’ve never been more prepared to support our team as we work towards becoming a much larger company, providing best-in-class enterprise DNS security.

Cybersecurity has solidified itself as a top priority for all CIOs and CISOs. My prediction is that in 2022, organizations will start prioritizing best-in-class and innovation over legacy solutions that continue to fall short. Too much is on the line for industry leaders to ignore this.
