Schiappa is responsible for driving innovation across Arctic Wolf’s product, engineering and business development teams, the company said. He has more than 20 years of experience in the technology and security sectors.

Prior to joining Sophos, Schiappa was senior VP and GM of the identity and data protection group at RSA. While there, Schiappa managed a business unit responsible for authentication, identity management, anti-fraud, encryption and data center operations.
In addition, Schiappa has held several GM positions at Microsoft. He also helped Microsoft expand its BitLocker and Rights Management services.
Arctic Wolf’s Cloud-based SOC Platform
Schiappa arrives amid Arctic Wolf’s march toward a potential IPO — which may arrive in the first half of 2022.
Arctic Wolf, a fast-growth business, has previously positioned itself around managed detection and response (MDR) and security operations center as a service (SOCaaS). Most recently, the company crystallized its focus as a cloud-based security operations platform that VARs can resell and MSSPs can leverage in their own businesses.
