Marcus Fowler, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and a former senior official at the CIA, has been appointed CEO of Darktrace’s newly established division that offers artificial intelligence-based cybersecurity tools to U.S. military, intelligence and civilian agencies.
His appointment comes three months after Darktrace Federal launched to help federal customers implement a self-learning, AI-powered cyber platform, the company said Wednesday.
Fowler joined the security technology provider in June 2019 and most recently served as its senior vice president for strategic developments and threats, according to his LinkedIn profile.
He previously spent 15 years at the CIA, where he held leadership roles focused on global cyber operations policies and strategies for intelligence community partners.
Darktrace aims to complete certification under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program for the company’s email security and cloud deployment platforms.
