IronNet hires software Aldridge veteran to be chief legal officer
Fulton, Maryland-based IronNet Cybersecurity has hired Scott Alridge as its chief legal officer. He’ll report to Co-CEOs Bill Welch and General (Ret.) Keith Alexander, the former Director of the U.S. National Security Agency and founding commander of U.S. Cyber Command.
The privately owned company says that Alridge brings years of experience to the cybersecurity business. For the past five years, he was the general counsel of the software as a service company Bronto Software. At Bronto, he has to establish the legal department function; the company was eventually acquired by NetSuite. NetSuite was later acquired by Oracle, and he continued to support the NetSuite business unit, helping Oracle establish a new legal hub in Durham, North Carolina. Prior to Oracle, Alridge spent over a decade at ChannelAdvisor Corp. as its general counsel; he started his career at IBM Corp.
“Our ability to execute on strategic and business initiatives in the U.S. and internationally requires a world-class attorney with a proven ability to perform within fast-paced, high-growth companies,” said Welch. “Scott’s appointment enhances our ability to support clients and partners across a range of legal, business, and geographic operational models.”
