As senior vice president of corporate development, Joe Gottlieb directs SailPoint’s strategic technology partnerships and acquisitions based on the company’s growth objectives. He has over two decades of experience in a variety of executive roles at security and enterprise technology companies in Silicon Valley.
Gottlieb brings a long history of security and broad information technology experience to SailPoint working with companies such as Aerospike, Sensage (acquired by KEYW) and McAfee. Most recently, he was the CEO of Aerospike, Inc. where he led this NoSQL database vendor through its Series C funding round of $20 million. During his tenure at Sensage, Gottlieb first acted as the vice president of marketing and business development, guiding OEM relationships with HP and Cerner, as well as technology alliances with SAP, Cisco, EMC and McAfee. Based on his success in that role, he was promoted to CEO and president and, ultimately, led the company to be acquired by KEYW due to the company’s growth and differentiation in the SIEM market.
Prior to his time at Sensage, Gottlieb was vice president of corporate strategy and technology alliances at McAfee, where he created the company’s technology partner program, the Security Innovation Alliance. He previously held executive positions at Nokia, the META Group and Ernst & Young.
