6. Changing Of The Guard At Eight Vendors

Eight cybersecurity vendors tapped someone new in 2019 to lead their companies, with Digital Guardian kicking things off in February when it hired CA Technologies security chief Mo Rosen. Rosen replaced Paul Ciriello, who had served as interim CEO since October 2018 following the sudden resignation of ex-CEO Ken Levine. Meanwhile, former Digital Reasoning CEO Brett Jackson took over at Cyren in May, replacing veteran CEO Lior Samuelson.

Also in May, the abrupt resignation of Symantec CEO Greg Clark prompted former Novellus Systems Chairman Richard Hill to take over on an interim basis. After the November sale of the Symantec Enterprise Security business to Broadcom, CFO Vincent Pilette was named CEO of the remaining consumer cyber safety business (which had been rebranded NortonLifeLock).

In July, top Avast lieutenant Ondrej Vlcek was promoted to CEO, replacing Vince Stecekler, who had led Avast for more than a decade. Also that month, LogRhythm tapped Attunity President Mark Logan to be its next CEO, replacing Andy Grolnick, who had led the company since 2005. In September, BlackBerry Cylance promoted right-hand man Daniel Doimo to take over as president, replacing Stuart McClure, who had led the company since its founding in 2012.

In October, Claroty snagged Druva Chief Revenue Officer Thorsten Freitag to lead the company, taking over for Amir Zilberstein, who had served as CEO since founding the company in 2015. Later that month, Imperva Chairman Charles Goodman stepped in to lead the company on an interim basis following the sudden resignation of CEO Chris Hylen in a “personal decision.”
