Industry Veteran Drives Wider Adoption of Syncurity’s Security Operations and Incident Response Platform
Arlington VA, May 24, 2017 -— Syncurity, a market leader in the security operations and incident response space launched out of the Mach37 Cyber Accelerator, today announced that it has appointed Tom Young as the company’s Executive Vice President (EVP) of Worldwide Sales. With more than 25 years of sales and marketing leadership in cybersecurity and enterprise software, Young joins Syncurity as the company expands its management team and supports a wider array of customers with its IR Flow Security Operations Platform.
“Tom’s remarkable background driving strategic sales and marketing make him an ideal addition to our team as we continue to accelerate our growth,” said Syncurity CEO John Jolly. “In particular, Tom’s experience defining markets and helping emerging cybersecurity companies grow strategic customers is invaluable to our business. As Syncurity drives a new industry conversation around how companies view and manage security operations and incident response, we are excited to leverage Tom’s knowledge of helping innovative companies stand apart from the pack and demonstrate new levels of value for demanding industries.”
Prior to joining Syncurity, Young led large enterprise sales for the Mid-Atlantic region at Zscaler, a cloud-based internet security and compliance start-up. He joined Zscaler from Symantec, where he spent 10 years in commercial enterprise security sales overseeing 7-figure transactions with Fortune 500 firms and managed a team that exceeded $60M in quota, the company’s largest globally. Young also served as the VP of Sales and Marketing for Platform Logic, a host-based intrusion protection start-up, and developed all aspects of the company’s go-to-market strategy leading to its acquisition by Symantec in 2004. His career also includes serving as SVP of Marketing and Sales for OneSoft, a B2B e-commerce firm acquired by Etensity, Inc., and as VP of a newly formed business unit within Manugistics, a supply chain application provider, which was later sold to JDA Software. Young began his career at Accenture, where he led engagements with Fortune 500 firms in the U.S. and Europe. He holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Maryland and completed coursework at Stanford in strategic marketing for high technology companies.
“Joining Syncurity offers a tremendous opportunity to drive innovation and change in one of the most crucial areas of cybersecurity – the ability to act against priority threats, in time – deriving greater returns from existing security tools, teams, and policies,” Young added. “As security teams everywhere confront the problem of massive alert volumes, changing IT infrastructures and narrower decision-making windows, Syncurity’s investors, technology track record and flexible IR Flow software make for a very attractive platform delivering solid business and security returns right out of the gate.”
