As many of you already know, in April I announced my plan to join SonicWall. I am sure that some of my friends in the cyber security industry expected me to join a “hot new startup” someday as opposed to a 26-year-old company. So, I figured I owed each of you a proper explanation of why I decided to join SonicWall at this time.
I had the pleasure of being introduced to some of the key cyber security product developments that were in SonicWall’s near-term roadmap. Those included fresh, new user interfaces, the addition of RTDMI technology to the SonicWall Capture Advanced Threat Protection sandbox service, Capture Client endpoint protection, Capture Security Center and other innovative upcoming product plans.
As I further studied the company, I quickly discovered that SonicWall has an aggressive but achievable plan to completely transform its offerings in ways the company and the security industry are not expecting. These changes gave me renewed confidence in SonicWall and validated my decision to join at this crucial phase in the company’s history. I feel I have joined a company well on the path to the innovation and growth often only seen in startups.
“I quickly discovered that SonicWall has an aggressive but achievable plan to completely transform its offerings in ways the company and the security industry are not expecting.”
My promise to our customers as a leader of SonicWall’s product management organization is to continue to drive innovation and bring renewed industry perspectives to SonicWall products and business strategy.
In short — I firmly believe we are poised for success and I will continue to work hard for our customers, partners and prospects.
