Veracode, a provider of cloud-based application security
testing, announced that Bob Brennan has been appointed CEO.
Formerly president and CEO of Iron Mountain, Brennan
succeeds interim CEO Maria Cirino who remains the chairperson of Veracode’s
Board of Directors.
With Brennan at the helm, Veracode expects to
aggressively extend its global market leadership within the rapidly growing
application security space.
Veracode is the first to deliver an
application security testing service in a cloud delivery model, which makes it
easier for organizations to proactively identify and remediate security
weaknesses in their applications before they can be exploited.
An increasing sense of urgency to protect data and
intellectual property has driven significant growth for Veracode, with the
company adding more than 200 new customers worldwide in the past year.
An innovator in the IT industry, Veracode built the
first cloud platform that analyzes software to provide independent security
verification. By joining this company, I now have an opportunity to work with
an incredibly talented team, an impressive customer base and proven technology
to solve a problem of global importance,” said Brennan.
While Brennan led Iron Mountain, the market leader in
data protection and information management services, the company reported more
than $3 billion in revenues and maintained operations in 39 countries. Prior to
Iron Mountain, Brennan was CEO of Connected, a market leader for enterprise PC
data protection, which was acquired by Iron Mountain.
