SALT LAKE CITY, UT — June 16, 2009 – Solera Networks, the leading provider of network forensics products and services, announced today that industry veteran Michael Cadle has been named Vice President of Sales.

Cadle will be located in the Washington, D.C., office where his team will support enterprise, higher education and public utility markets, in addition to the Federal sales division.
Cadle brings more than 25 years of sales and marketing expertise in the network security and infrastructure industries. He delivers a wealth of knowledge of the public sector plus an impressive track record of sales success in the enterprise, education and health care markets.

In addition to its presence in Washington, D.C., Solera Networks has also moved into its new corporate headquarters to support overall company expansion. The new office space is four times the size of its former location and will host sales, marketing, R&D and finance operations. The company’s growing customer base includes Global 2000 enterprises and large domestic and international government entities.”
