ATDC Accelerate company
2017 Cohort member
Founded in 2015 originally as Convergent Technology Advisors, PrivOps is creating the next generation of technologies for building secure, compliant applications in the cloud.
Our technologies accelerate innovation by with software that makes it possible to grow revenue while simultaneously keeping customer and employee data secure and compliant. By associating policies and metadata with customer data, PrivOps' technology enables real time automation of data governance with policies driven by permissible use, consent, and other compliance data. This makes it possible to control in real time where data lives, how it’s stored, and when, who or what has access. It’s now much easier to stay compliant while quickly, safely and cost effectively using personal data to create better, more personalized customer experiences.
Tyler Johnson, Founder and CEO
A senior executive and thought leader with more than 20 years of experience, Tyler has a unique perspective that has helped him build technologies, teams and processes to accelerate innovation.
Early in his career, Tyler invented an automated testing platform for HP's most advanced Superdome servers. Using an approach to automation and feedback similar to what's known as DevOps today, his platform dramatically accelerated product launch time and quality by automating testing for over 150 engineers. Still in use after over 15 years, Tyler was awarded 22 US and several international patents for this innovation.
Since then, Tyler led product development for a organization that more than doubled the size of Rackspace's VMware private cloud practice to over $600 Million, led strategic alliances with IT technology leaders with up to $75 Million in business, and launched PrivOps, a startup focused on software for intelligent integration.
A recognized expert in the cloud computing space, Tyler has consulted and worked with global IT firms, such as Rackspace, HP, CSC (now DXC Technology), NetApp, VMware, DellEMC, Deloitte, and many others.
Tyler holds a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Florida Atlantic University, an MBA from Southern Methodist University and resides in Alpharetta, GA, with his wife and two sets of twins.
