Xage Security Boasts 420% Growth Thanks to Zero Trust Cybersecurity Mesh Demand
Xage Security appoints cybersecurity executive Geoffrey Mattson as CEO as demand for zero trust cybersecurity mesh skyrockets.
PALO ALTO, Calif. – Zero trust cybersecurity software platform Xage Security reports that demand for its zero trust cybersecurity mesh platform across critical infrastructure industries has driven year-over-year revenue growth of 420% and 560% growth in bookings in the first half of 2023.
To guide its next phase of growth, Xage has named entrepreneur and cybersecurity executive Geoffrey Mattson as CEO, who brings decades of experience as a leader in research and development, product development, and go-to-market strategy.
Mattson’s predecessor, Duncan Greatwood, has assumed the role of executive chair of the Xage board. Greatwood will support Mattson in his leadership of Xage and contribute to the company’s vision and strategic direction as Xage accelerates its product and GTM investments.
Xage’s customers include the world’s leading infrastructure operators in energy, such as Kinder Morgan, Saudi Aramco, PETRONAS, Leeward Renewable Energy and Petrobras; U.S. Federal Government and Defense entities, including contracts with Space Force and Air Force; and manufacturing, utilities, and transportation organizations across the globe.
Xage also works to secure clean energy resources as a member of the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s Clean Energy Cybersecurity Accelerator program.
“Geoff’s background is deeply rooted in both networking and cybersecurity, which positions him to appreciate what the Xage team has accomplished to date and to drive towards a future that is brimming with opportunities to ensure integrity, privacy and trust of industrial systems, data centers, and cloud,” says Greatwood in the company announcement.
“With Geoff, we have a combination of visionary technical and product leadership, great experience building organizations, and excellent skills in engaging with customers and scaling GTM,” he says. “We welcome him aboard to lead Xage on to even greater success.”
More About Xage Security’s Growth

The Fabric positions Xage at the intersection of zero trust network access and cyber-physical systems Protection markets, as cited by Gartner.

“I’m thrilled to take the helm at Xage and to support all our customers as they move to cyber harden their infrastructure and securely harness the power of digital transformation,” he says.
