Arbor networks has named Matthew Moynahan as the new company president, replacing former chief Colin Doherty.
Moynahan had been senior vice president of product management and corporate development at Arbor since 2012.
Prior to joining Arbor Networks, Matt was president and chief executive of Veracode.
He also served as a vice president at Symantec in several roles, including the consumer products and client and host (server) security divisions.
Moynahan said he was excited by the opportunity to lead a great team.
“The solution portfolio is dynamic and exciting, but the company culture that Colin has fostered is what truly makes this a special place to work,” he said.
“The company is well positioned, united around our strategy and committed to delivering for our customers, partners and each other.”
Doherty joined Arbor in 2007, first as VP of worldwide sales and then as president for the past four years.
Arbor underwent a period of unprecedented growth and expansion under his leadership, highlighted by the 2010 acquisition by Danaher and culminating with the launch of Arbor CloudSM services for multi-layered DDoS protection and acquisition of Packetloop, expanding Arbor’s presence in the advanced threat market.Read more: Unprecedented spike in DDoS attacks: Arbor Networks
Doherty said 2013 was a transformative year for the company.
“Arbor is now delivering a broad, integrated set of network visibility; threat detection and mitigation; incident response and forensics capabilities that help customers see, understand and solve their most critical security challenges,” he said.
“Matt has been instrumental in developing our strategy and has the right blend of business, technical and managerial experience to lead Arbor in its next stage of growth.”
