IID Appoints Bob Dunne as New Vice President of Sales
Former Tripwire and Tektronix Executive Hired to Fulfill Demand for
Cyber Threat Intelligence Sharing Platform, ActiveTrust
TACOMA, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/16/14 -- IID, securing the
Internet with shared cyber intelligence, today announced that it has
expanded its executive team with the addition of Bob Dunne as IID's
Vice President of Sales. Dunne will oversee IID's global sales team
that is focused on helping support the growing demand for its
platform to exchange cyber threat intelligence, ActiveTrust.
"With the recent launch of ActiveTrust, and subsequent adoption by
dozens of Fortune 500 companies and government agencies, IID has
experienced dramatic growth," said IID CEO Lars Harvey. "Bob Dunne
has a long history of helping structure growing cybersecurity sales'
teams and catapulting companies into their next growth stage, and
we're excited to welcome him to IID."
Prior to IID, Dunne was Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales at
cybersecurity company Tripwire, Inc., where he managed a global sales
team that quintupled revenues. At Merant Software he restructured the
management sales and support force that resulted in increased
revenue, and ultimately the company's acquisition by SERENA Software,
Inc. Dunne began his career at IBM and has led worldwide teams in
senior executive and management roles at Tektronix Inc., Mentor
Graphics Corporation, and other technology companies.
"ActiveTrust is filling a void that has existed for decades; giving
businesses and government agencies a trusted platform to exchange
cyber threat intelligence," said Dunne. "I specifically joined IID
because we are at a critical point in the Internet's evolution where
the bad guys have become increasingly successful in carrying out
cyberattacks due to their sharing of attack methods. It has become
clear that in order to secure the Web we must share better than the
criminals, and IID provides the best way to do so."
Formally launched this February, ActiveTrust enables businesses and
government agencies to confidently exchange threat intelligence and
coordinate response between organizations. This expanded insight
powers existing security infrastructure, helping these organizations
stay ahead of -- and take action against -- the latest cyber threats.
The addition of Dunne is the latest in a series of executive
appointments at IID. In January 2014 the company appointed Ben King
as CFO, Merike Kaeo as CISO and Mark Foege as Vice President of
IID is a cybersecurity company that provides the platform
to easily exchange cyber threat intelligence between enterprises and
governments. Top financial firms, the largest government agencies,
and leading e-commerce companies, social networks and ISPs leverage
IID to detect and mitigate threats. IID was founded in 1996. The
company is headquartered in Tacoma, Washington. For more information
