Ericom Software Names Former Symantec Executive David Canellos as Chief Executive Officer
Seasoned Cybersecurity Leader to Focus on Accelerating Industry-wide Adoption of Remote Browser Isolation
New York, NY, (January 17, 2019) — Ericom Software, a global leader in securing and connecting the digital workspace, today announced that technology industry veteran David Canellos has been appointed as the company’s new Chief Executive Officer.
Canellos most recently held the position of Senior Vice President, Global Service Providers at Symantec. In his nearly 25-years in the industry, Canellos has led several cybersecurity ventures to impressive market growth and successful exits. As President and CEO, he guided Perspecsys Inc. through its acquisition by Blue Coat Systems, which was subsequently acquired by Symantec. He previously led the acquisition of Cloakware, where he was President and COO, by the Irdeto division of Naspers. Prior to Cloakware, Canellos held executive roles at Cramer Systems (now Amdocs), Oracle and SAIC.
“We’re delighted to have David join Ericom Software,” said Eran Heyman, Founder, Chairman, and Chief Architect. “With his deep cybersecurity experience and exceptional track record, he is the ideal leader for Ericom as we continue to develop and promote adoption of Ericom Shield, our remote browser isolation solution.”
In his research, Gartner VP Research Neil Macdonald states: “Almost all successful attacks on users originate from the public internet and many involve web-based attacks. Security and risk management leaders can contain damage by using remote browser isolation to separate end-user internet browsing sessions from enterprise endpoints and networks.” *
“As a pioneer in developing remote browser isolation solutions as well as access technologies for the enterprise market, Ericom Software is poised for impressive growth, as organizations seeking to apply Zero Trust methodologies to web browsing learn about the airtight security that remote browser isolation provides,” said David Canellos. “I look forward to working with Eran and the entire Ericom team to spearhead widespread adoption of this and additional leading-edge cybersecurity technology solutions.”
