— Identity management startup OneLogin hired Vanessa Pegueros, the former chief information security officer of DocuSign and Expedia, to lead global information security. Pegueros, who stepped down from DocuSign in April, also previously led information security at US Bank and is a venture partner at Flying Fish Partners.
“Organizations today deal with a constantly-shifting landscape of security challenges, including everything from sophisticated hacks to simple, poor internal security decisions. These issues continue to erode the public’s overall trust in how companies use technology to handle important data,” Pegueros said in a statement. “OneLogin’s CEO Brad Brooks and his team are helping the enterprise with these challenges by providing solutions that enable access seamlessly and securely while allowing our customers to continue along the path to digital transformation.”
Brooks, a Microsoft veteran, previously worked with Pegueros at DocuSign, where Brooks was chief of marketing. OneLogin is headquartered in San Francisco and opened an engineering office in Redmond, Wash. last year. It employs 30 people at the office, which just expanded to accommodate for growth. Nearly half of the company’s exec team is in Redmond. OneLogin raised $100 million in January and competes with Seattle-area unicorn Auth0.
