PETALUMA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/29/12 --  Cyan today announced the
appointment of Ken Siegel as vice president and general counsel. The
addition of Siegel to the Cyan leadership team will help address
legal, regulatory, and compliance matters as the company accelerates
its global expansion. Siegel has considerable experience with both
private and public companies in the software and hardware sectors,
skills that closely match Cyan's business profile.  
According to Mark Floyd, Cyan chairman and CEO, "Ken brings the
perfect skill set to Cyan -- he has played key roles in companies
with multinational operations, he has been involved in both software
and hardware companies, and he has experience with both privately
held and publicly traded companies." 
Siegel most recently served as senior vice president and general
counsel at QuinStreet, an internet direct marketing company. Prior to
QuinStreet, Siegel served as senior vice president and general
counsel at SafeNet, a provider of data security products and
solutions. Prior to SafeNet, Ken served as vice president and general
counsel at Verigy, a provider of advanced semiconductor test systems

compliance worldwide, corporate governance, including SEC reporting,
and legal aspects of mergers and acquisitions and strategic
transactions. Before that, Ken was senior vice president and general
counsel at Agile Software Corporation, a provider of product
lifecycle management software solutions. 
"Cyan represents a unique opportunity in the emerging
software-defined networking space," said Siegel. "With advanced
software products and innovative packet optical platforms, Cyan has
the opportunity to blend what had heretofore been discrete market
segments. I look forward to helping the company execute in that
mission." 
Earlier in his career, Siegel served as senior vice president and
general counsel at Efficient Networks, Inc., a publicly traded
broadband telecommunications equipment company that was acquired by
Siemens AG. Prior to joining Efficient, Siegel was with Wilson,
