WALTHAM, Mass., March 31, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Carbon Black®, a leader in Next-Generation Endpoint Security (NGES), today announced the appointment of Tony Zingale to its board of directors. Zingale brings 35 years of high-tech experience at both private and public companies to the Carbon Black board, including successful stints as CEO of Clarify, Mercury Interactive and Jive Software, which he took public in 2011. He also served on the board of antivirus vendor McAfee before its sale to Intel. Currently, Zingale is executive chairman and former CEO of Jive Software, the leading provider of modern communication and collaboration solutions for business.
Zingale has had a ringside seat as cyber security rapidly evolved from an IT issue to a critical board-level pain point for virtually every organization. "There's a term often used in business—risk aversion—which can apply to many aspects of a company's operations," he said. "But with constant reports of retailers, hospitals, government departments and other businesses being breached and having their customers' financial data, patient records, intellectual property, and other information stolen or destroyed, I believe that cyber security is the number-one risk in today's business world. And it's costing executives their jobs, which is as real as it gets.
"That's why I am excited to join the Carbon Black board. The company is a leader in security, has an experienced management team and clear momentum in the endpoint market. We have an incredible opportunity to grow the company by helping our customers protect their information from potentially devastating security breaches," Zingale said.
Patrick Morley, CEO of Carbon Black, says Zingale is a great addition to the company's board. "Tony has an amazing track record of helping high-tech companies build great teams, find the perfect balance between growth and profitability, execute on strategy and exceed customer expectations. He joins a company that shares his vision and he will be a valuable asset as Carbon Black works to expand our leadership in Next-Generation Endpoint Security."
