Spotlight Interview with Adrian Acuña, Senior Manager of Sales Engineering at Synopsys






Adrian Acuña
Senior Manager, Sales Engineer

What do you hope attendees will gain at your webinar?

Our goal is to hopefully provide some valuable insight on what ASoC is and how it can help clients. Application Security is playing a larger and larger role in securing the general public and as more tools are introduced into the space and into organizations, teams are finding it more and more difficult to keep up and an ASoC tool has been instrumental in keeping pace with the data and the changes.

What discussions do you look forward to having with the attendees?

I thoroughly enjoy hearing from other industry members about their challenges and understanding any new or unique use cases that apply. Every individual I talk to often has an interesting story or edge case that they were able to find a creative solution to.

What do you enjoy most about your role?

I enjoy learning about the new platforms and tools that are introduced.  I don’t like to get bored and this role consistently keeps me challenged and engaged. I also like meeting and networking with other professionals in the industry.

How did you get into the industry?

After my time in the US Navy, I began working with an electronic locks company and started in Physical Security. The company was unique as it was blending wireless communication technology (similar to ZigBee) with physical security hardware.  At the time, we were one of 3 companies offering a wireless solution like this.  That started my interest in security and eventually information and application security. This experience led me to moving to a data security company and then to an application security company and I’ve essentially floated around the cybersecurity space ever since.

Where is your favorite place in the world and why?

Between my childhood and my military career, I have travelled extensively and I can’t say there was anywhere that I didn’t enjoy.  If I were to choose one, I would say my trips to Dubai and the UAE were some of the most enjoyable, although not the least expensive.  So much to do there.  I also would love to go back to Australia, perhaps Sydney or Melbourne.
