Flexera Builds on Industry-Leading Security Initiatives by Hiring Mike Gibson as Chief Information Security Officer (CISO)


Itasca, IL - August 30, 2022

Flexera, the company that helps organizations maximize business value from their technology investments, today announced the hiring of Mike Gibson as chief information security officer (CISO).

Gibson is a cybersecurity industry veteran with a proven track record of protecting the interests of software development and SaaS companies. He comes to Flexera from Pluralsight, where he built out the security organization for their online learning platform. Mike has also led enterprise security for Genesys, guiding the department through numerous acquisitions. Gibson started his career at Flexera, then called InstallShield.

“Like a lot of ‘boomerangers,’ I’m very excited to be back at Flexera, where I began my career in information security,” said Mike Gibson, CISO of Flexera. “Under the leadership of CIO and former CISO Conal Gallagher, Flexera already utilizes industry-leading security best practices and uses its own security products. As Conal moves into the focused chief information officer role, my priority will be the security innovation and discipline that our customers demand.”

Security remains a key area for IT and C-level executives. Flexera’s research shows that security was the number one challenge facing respondents in ten of the eleven Flexera State of the Cloud reports. In addition, in 2022, security was the most requested feature for multi-cloud tools.

“At Flexera, security is in our DNA. From the acquisition of leading security companies such Palamida (now Revenera Software Composition Analysis) and Secunia Research (which provides the most accurate and reliable source of vulnerability intelligence), we provide our customers actionable security insights,” said Conal Gallagher, CIO of Flexera. “As our own internal security and processes continue to evolve, we wanted a dedicated, experienced leader who can keep Flexera at the forefront of software security. We’re pleased to have Mike Gibson with Flexera as CISO.”
