SAN MATEO, Calif., Dec. 19, 2017 -- Exabeam, the leader in Security Intelligence Solutions, today announced that Tim Matthews has joined the company as chief marketing officer. In this role, he will drive global brand awareness and oversee marketing strategy, communications, and demand generation. Matthews joins Exabeam as the company completes a 2017 fiscal year that saw record revenue and customer growth, as demand continues to increase for its next-generation approach to security information and event management (SIEM) and user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) solutions.
Matthews has built his career leading marketing efforts at some of the most important companies in security. He joins Exabeam after overseeing Imperva’s marketing and global brand strategy, and previously led marketing efforts at PGP Corporation, Symantec and RSA Security. His experience ranges a diverse number of enterprise security products and services, including mobile information protection, authentication, encryption, compliance, data loss prevention, risk management, managed security services and cloud protection.
“Tim’s depth of enterprise security expertise is critical for our team as we continue to grow and disrupt the SIEM and UEBA markets with a next-generation approach to security intelligence,” said Nir Polak, Exabeam co-founder and CEO. “Tim’s experience marketing best-of-breed, subscription-based security products will be a significant asset within our organization.”
Enterprises and government organizations are realizing that their greatest threat lies within their privileged user network. Over 50 percent of organizations suffered insider attacks in the past twelve months -- and ninety percent of all organizations believe they are still vulnerable. As IoT and BYOD trends are producing more data than ever before, traditional SIEM products are incapable of staying one step ahead of insider threats. Companies need unlimited data collection, machine learning and a focus on user behavior to truly keep valuable information safe.
“Exabeam equips enterprises with the power to analyze massive amounts of information and detect advance threats, giving incident response teams and CISOs the information they need to mitigate security risks,” said Tim Matthews, CMO at Exabeam. “Exabeam has the right technology, solving the right problem at the right time in the market, and I could not be more excited to join Nir and his team.”
