Mike Viruso

Chief Strategy Officer

Mike Viruso, chief strategy officer and co-owner of Rocus Networks cybersecurity, has over 20 years sales and leadership success in the technology industry. Driven by the belief that effective IT security should be available to organizations of any size, he led the development of a solution that addressed a major void in the market: enterprise-level IT protection that is affordable for small and medium businesses.

Mike grew the Palo Alto Networks territory in the Carolinas year-over-year by over 200% and more than doubled the customer and partner base for Cylance. His entrepreneurial spirit was clear early on, when he helped build the technology consulting company, Consultedge, into a $30 Million category leader, which was then acquired by one of the largest telephony resellers in the country. Mike resides in Davidson, North Carolina with his wife, Kris, of 21 years and 3 boys, Alex, Ryan and Jason.
