As chief information officer, Jake McClean leads the teams responsible for the strategy, operations and evolution of IT, enterprise security and business systems across Tanium’s technology estate. Given Tanium’s mission, this naturally includes a heightened focus on endpoint cyber hygiene and an enduring commitment to work closely with Tanium’s product and engineering teams to continuously adopt and provide feedback on the latest products and features.
Prior to Tanium, Jake worked for Virgin America and Alaska Airlines, where he ran teams responsible for IT operations and security, ranging from kiosks to mobile apps, internal systems, and consumer-facing websites. Notably, Jake was a key leader within the systems integration effort, which formed following the acquisition of Virgin America by Alaska Airlines.
Prior to his stint in the airlines, Jake ran the SaaS infrastructure and corporate IT for EVault, a data protection company owned by Seagate.
