Arbor Networks appoints new president
Moynahan: The company is well positioned, united around our strategy and committed to delivering for our customers, partners and each other.

Arbor Networks, Inc today announced the appointment of Matthew Moynahan to the position of president, replacing Colin Doherty.

Moynahan had been senior vice president of product management and corporate development at Arbor since 2012.

Over the course of his 23-year career, Moynahan has held a variety of executive and leadership positions within private and public companies. Prior to joining Arbor Networks, he was president and chief executive officer of application security company Veracode. Previously, he served as a vice president at Symantec in several roles, including the consumer products and client and host security divisions.

"I'm excited by the opportunity to lead this great team," said Moynahan. "The solution portfolio is dynamic and exciting, but the company culture that Colin has fostered is what truly makes this a special place to work. The company is well positioned, united around our strategy and committed to delivering for our customers, partners and each other."

Doherty joined Arbor in 2007, first as VP of worldwide sales and then as president for the past four years. Arbor underwent a period of growth and expansion under his leadership, including the 2010 acquisition by Danaher; the launch of Arbor CloudSM services for multi-layered DDoS protection; and acquisition of Packetloop, expanding Arbor's presence in the advanced threat market.

"2013 was a transformative year for the company. Arbor is now delivering a broad, integrated set of network visibility, threat detection and mitigation, incident response and forensics capabilities that help customers see, understand and solve their most critical security challenges," said Doherty.

"Matt has been instrumental in developing our strategy and has the right blend of business, technical and managerial experience to lead Arbor in its next stage of growth."

"I am confident that Matt's blend of experience, skills and entrepreneurial spirit will serve Arbor well as we establish a key leadership position in the growing advanced threat market," said Robert Piconi, Danaher's group executive for the Test and Measurement Communications Platform. 

"I want to thank Colin not only for his exceptional leadership within Arbor, but the integrity and thoughtfulness he brought to the job every day."
