CyberFox‘s new cybersecurity strategy leader stands ready to address MSPs’ biggest pain points so they can succeed and grow.

Wes Spencer is CyberFox’s new vice president of cybersecurity strategy. Previously, he was co-founder and CISO of Perch Security, which was acquired by ConnectWise in late 2020. He then became vice president and external CSO at ConnectWise.

Since then, he has continued to work across the channel as an educator and advisor. He is now part of CyberFox’s executive leadership team.

Cybersecurity Strategy Leader’s Priorities

In his new role, Spencer is charged with:

  • Helping identify and create product focus strategies moving forward. 

  • Leading internal and external thought leadership initiatives. 

  • Working with product marketing and development teams on short-and long-term roadmaps for success. 

  • Helping partners in their cybersecurity journey to continue to build cybersecurity maturity.

CyberFox launched last summer. Its focus is on providing identity access management (IAM) solutions for MSPs. It brought together under a single brand two IAM security companies — Password Boss and AutoElevate.


CyberFox’s Wes Spencer

Spencer said he’s known CyberFox co-founders Adam Slutskin and David Bellini for some time, and they wanted a cybersecurity leader to “come on board and continue to help bring the vision of where we’re going with cyber forward.”

“It’s just a perfect mix between us,” he said. “We’re very well aligned in our mission of partner first and how do we make the partner better. I only want to go to work at places where we hold that view of how do we make our MSP partners better. How do we help them in that journey? Because if we can make them better, then we will get everything we need out of that relationship, too. And they hold that viewpoint and that vision. And so that’s a place where I’m very comfortable to come in and add value to.”
