SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/12/12 --  AccelOps, Inc., the
leader in integrated Security Information and Event Management
(SIEM), and performance and availability monitoring (PAM) for
on-premise and cloud-based data centers, today announced that it has
appointed former Cisco Systems executive and Tidal Software CEO Flint
Brenton as president and chief executive officer, effective
immediately. As a seasoned Silicon Valley technology executive,
Brenton will lead AccelOps through its next phase of expansion,
driving business strategy and operations to capitalize on the rapidly
growing market for advanced IT infrastructure monitoring.  
"We are pleased to have an executive of Flint's caliber and
experience to lead the AccelOps team into the expanding ITOM
infrastructure market," said Chris Rust, partner at U.S. Venture
Partners and a member of AccelOps' board of directors. "According to
Gartner ITOM and SIEM market reports, the total addressable market
for AccelOps was $6.9 billion in 2010, and is predicted to grow to
$9.7 billion by 2014. With Flint's leadership, AccelOps is
well-poised to succeed in this market with its patent-pending
distributed real-time analytics and integrated monitoring technology
and its recent $18 million Series B funding." 
Brenton most recently served as senior vice president of engineering
in Cisco's Intelligent Automation Business Unit. In this role, he led
the organization in delivering automation solutions, through organic
development and acquisition, that make it easier for IT to manage and
administer diverse technologies. In 2008, as president and CEO of
Tidal Software, he oversaw the company's acquisition by Cisco. He
then guided the integration of the Tidal business into Cisco and the
creation of the Intelligent Automation business unit. During his
25-year career, Brenton also served as senior vice president and
general manager of NetIQ's Security and Administration business unit,
and has held various leadership positions at NetIQ, Compaq Computer
Corporation, BMC Software, and IBM. He received a
 master's in
business and public management from Rice University and a bachelor of
science degree from Mount Union College.  
"AccelOps offers integrated SIEM and performance and availability
monitoring for cloud infrastructures," Brenton said. "I am impressed
with the depth as well as the breadth of the company's cross-domain
technology for monitoring all aspects of modern data center
infrastructure, both physical and virtualized. In the 2012 fiscal
year, AccelOps reported that the company doubled revenues and the
number of customers. I am excited to build on AccelOps' success and
with the opportunity to shape a dynamic and growing market driven by
customers' transition from traditional data centers to private,
hybrid and public cloud service infrastructures."
