Thales e-Security Vet Wayne Lewandowski Named HyTrust North American Public Sector SVP, GM

Wayne Lewandowski

Wayne Lewandowski, formerly vice president of federal business at Thales e-Security, has joined HyTrust as senior VP and general manager for North American public sector business.

Lewandowski will work to turn the federal advisory board’s advice into action as he oversees the company’s work with defense agencies and other federal government clients, HyTrust said Tuesday.

“The government recognizes that both cyber and cloud computing are a key part of their [information technology] direction,” Lewandowski said.

He noted that HyTrust will help deliver a secure IT strategy in data center and cloud environments.

Lewandowski previously worked at Plan B Government Systems as regional manager for the Defense Department before he moved in 2013 to Vormetric, which now operates as Thales e-Security following its acquisition by Thales Group in 2016.

He held senior account leadership posts at several companies such as VMware (NYSE: VMW), SAS Institute, Interwoven, Mobius and Computer Associates, now known as CA Technologies (Nasdaq: CA).

HyTrust also named three additional members to its federal advisory board that seeks to expand the company’s footprint in the public sector.

The new advisory board members are:

  • Mark Kirk, former U.S. senator and former congressman from Illinois
  • Reginald Hyde, former deputy undersecretary for intelligence and security at DoD
  • Rhett Hernandez, a retired U.S. Army lieutenant general and former first commander of the Army Cyber Command

“It’s an honor to welcome these three respected members to our federal advisory board,” said John De Santis, HyTrust chairman and CEO.

“They expand the diversity of our team and the value we can provide in creating cloud and virtualization offerings to enable government agencies to take advantage of cost and operational benefits of cutting-edge technologies.”
