WASHINGTON – Today ITI, the global voice of the tech sector, announced the addition of four new member companies, Equinix, Oath, Rapid7, and Tenable. The addition of these cutting-edge technology companies will enhance ITI’s already dynamic membership, made up of the world’s most innovative companies, as we continue to engage with policymakers across the globe on a wide-range of issues that are critical to the success of the industry.

“We are thrilled to welcome Equinix, Oath, Rapid7, and Tenable to our expanding membership,” said ITI’s CEO and President Dean Garfield. “As leaders in cybersecurity, research and development, and utilizing media platforms, these companies are not only a natural fit, they are an incredible value-add to our work. We will benefit from the unique insights and contributions each company will provide as we continue to advocate for public policy solutions that grow the tech economy and promote and nurture innovation worldwide.”

"We are thrilled to join ITI to support issues that matter most to our customers globally, including renewable energy, cybersecurity, and privacy,” said Paul Brownell, Public Policy Director at Equinix.

"ITI is a respected, global voice for the advancement of policies that will shape the future of the innovation economy, and we're pleased to be a part of it,” said April Boyd, Vice President and Head of Global Public Policy at Oath. “The diversity of Oath's brands — from publishers like TechCrunch and HuffPost to communications platforms like Yahoo Mail and creators like RYOT — along with our audience of more than one billion users are representative of the entire internet ecosystem.

“Rapid7 is committed to advancing smart cybersecurity policies and supporting the IT and infosec community through meaningful partnership,” said Harley Geiger, Director of Public Policy at Rapid7.We believe that collaboration and cross-industry alignment are critical to innovation, as well as driving impactful change. We are excited to join ITI and believe their broad policy expertise and global reach will help keep us well-informed and effective in our advocacy.”

“Cybersecurity is a critical issue that requires collaboration across the industry,” said James Hayes, Vice President for Global Government Affairs at Tenable. “Today’s complex mix of digital platforms and assets creates a growing gap in organizations’ ability to truly understand their Cyber Exposure at any given time. For government agencies, this is only compounded by legacy technology. We look forward to working with ITI and the broader cybersecurity community to support and advocate for policies that address these issues and boost our nation’s cybersecurity.”
