Thor Wallace

As Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer for Netscout, Thor Wallace recently led the company through an unprecedented transformation of its own IT architecture.

By using Netscout products and services, Thor and his teams – encompassing cyber security, applications, networking, service desk and infrastructure – have transformed the IT infrastructure from a traditional, exclusively on-premises hardware platform into a virtualized, software-defined, heavily-automated network that spans all of Netscout's locations. He is also revamping the company’s cyber security architecture and other functions associated with zero-trust networking.

Thor is well-versed in the nuances of modern IT’s edge-based networking and the need for greater visibility in multi-cloud environments. With 30-plus years of experience, he is both a business management and computing expert who is able to holistically assess and articulate the benefits and challenges of IT transformations for fellow C-suite leaders.
