Former Bank of America CIO and CTO joins Arkose Labs’ board to help steer next season of growth and accelerate march to profitability
SAN MATEO, Calif. (Jan. 30, 2024) – Arkose Labs, the global leader in bot management and account security, today announced the appointment of David Reilly, former CIO and CTO of Bank of America, to its Board of Directors.
Reilly is a veteran technology executive, specializing in the globally regulated banking industry. He spent more than 10 years with Bank of America first as CTO and then as CIO for the global banking and markets businesses. During his tenure, he spearheaded strategic initiatives involving AI/ML aimed at positioning the bank for long-term success in the rapidly changing digital landscape. Prior to that he held executive and senior technology leadership positions at: Morgan Stanley, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, and Merrill Lynch.
“As a distinguished visionary, strategist, and technologist, David brings a valuable point of view and a unique set of bank-industry experiences to our board,” said Kevin Gosschalk, founder and CEO, Arkose Labs. “I look forward to working closely with him as we continue to grow and serve the largest enterprises in the world that are the primary targets for adversaries’ bot-driven attacks.”
The conveniences an expanding digital landscape have delivered to companies and consumers have also fostered a thriving cybercrime community using automation.
“Volumetric bot-led attacks and novel low and slow threats, like reverse proxy phishing, are a strategic and increasing risk due to their scale and success rates, and if not addressed can erode consumer trust,” said Reilly. “I’m excited about getting involved with Arkose Labs because it’s a pure-play, category leader with technology that demonstrates high efficacy and solves a real and pressing challenge for companies and their customers. The Arkose Global Intelligence Consortium provides a broad network effect that ultimately helps restore consumer trust across the digital marketplace. I look forward to sharing knowledge and collaborating with my fellow board members and the executive leadership team to help the company achieve its growth ambitions.”
Reilly currently serves on the boards for Ally Financial, VectraAI, Graphiant, DataDynamics, and NPower.
