Jason Meller
Founder and CEO at Kolide

Jason Meller is the founder and CEO of Kolide, a Device Trust solution for teams with Okta. He has spent his 15-year career building technology that enables cybersecurity professionals to protect their interests and successfully defend from sophisticated and organized global cyber threats. Jason started his security and product career at GE’s elite computer incident response team, led by Richard Bejtlich (the father of modern network security monitoring). From there, Jason moved to the legendary Mandiant Corporation (acquired by FireEye) quickly working his way up from an entry-level analyst position to becoming the Chief Security Strategist. He conceptualized, built, and deployed key products, including their managed services and threat intelligence offerings. He also organized, structured, and led the engineering strike team to facilitate and grow high-profile partnerships and key strategic initiatives. Jason has also co-founded and served as CEO of Threat Stack, a Techstars-backed cloud security startup.

Jason’s proven track record and passion for building purpose-built cybersecurity products led him to launch Kolide. Today, Kolide provides companies across the globe with a solution that should have been built years ago, along with the security guidelines and education for employees to achieve compliance without resorting to rigid management in today’s digital economy. Jason received his B.S. at the University of Connecticut.
