Former Symantec VP wins Arbor Networks presidency race

13 Jan 2014

Arbor Networks has announced the appointment of Matthew Moynahan to the position of president, replacing Colin Doherty in the company hot seat.

Holding the role of senior vice president of product management and corporate development at Arbor Networks since 2012, over the course of his 23-year career, Moynahan has held a variety of executive and leadership positions within fast growing private as well as very large public companies.

Prior to joining Arbor Networks, Moynahan was president and CEO of Veracode, a leader in application security.

Previously, he served as a vice president at Symantec in several roles, including the consumer products and client and host (server) security divisions.

“I’m excited by the opportunity to lead this great team," Moynahan says.

"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.

"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.

“2013 was a transformative year for the company," Doherty adds.

"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.

“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.”

“I am confident that Matt’s blend of experience, skills and entrepreneurial spirit will serve Arbor well as we establish a key leadership position in the growing advanced threat market,” adds Robert Piconi, Danaher’s Group Executive for the Test & Measurement Communications Platform.

“I want to thank Colin not only for his exceptional leadership within Arbor, but the integrity and thoughtfulness he brought to the job every day."
