“We are privileged to have Gordon Eubanks join Solera, and share his excitement for our vision in the network security marketplace,” said Steve Shillingford, president and CEO, Solera Networks. “As cyber attacks continue to evolve at an accelerated pace, it’s clear we need to continually refine our approach in fortifying and enhancing network security strategies. Gordon brings a wealth of experience and insight to Solera Networks to help us deliver solutions to secure today’s global networks through complete and comprehensive visibility into every network event.”
