Account Executive

Expel provides transparent, SaaS based managed security as a managed detection & response (MDR) vendor. It’s the antidote for companies trapped in failed relationships with their managed security service provider (MSSP) and those looking to avoid the frustration of working with one in the first place. Transparency is the unique bit. You get 24x7 access to our security analysts so you can watch investigations as they’re unfolding and take action immediately -- all within a shared interface. Our analysts monitor your environment and investigate suspicious activity using the security products you already own. When we find a problem, we tell you exactly what to do about it including how to fix the root cause of problems that happen over and over.
