Corero Announces Appointment of High Tech Executive to Lead Worldwide Sales

Leading Provider of Protection Against DDoS, Zero-day and Server Targeted Attacks to Bolster Global Sales Expansion

HUDSON, MA, May 21, 2013 – Corero Network Security (CNS: LN), the First Line of Defense for enterprises globally against Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks and other unwanted traffic at the perimeter, is pleased to announce the  appointment of David Ahee as Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales. This appointment follows other recent additions to the leadership team, including that of IT industry executive and Internet technology entrepreneur Ashley Stephenson earlier this year to the role of Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

Ahee brings more than 20 years of experience in global and regional sales management to Corero, having established enterprise, service provider and channel sales strategies in the US, Europe and Asia. Most recently Ahee was Senior Vice President of Sales, Americas at Procera Networks (NASDAQ:PKT), a manufacturer of traffic management platforms for service providers and enterprises. Prior to Procera, he held senior roles at Aylus Networks, ThinkEngine Networks, Ascend Communications and Newbridge Networks.

In his role, Ahee will be responsible for driving Corero’s First Line of Defense offering to the global market.

"Corero has spearheaded a new approach that is being increasingly adopted to protect companies and government organizations against today’s cyber attacks that easily bypass firewall, IPS and other traditional technology,” said Ashley Stephenson, Corero CEO. “David is an established leader with a track record of successfully working with distributors’ channels and customers globally. With David on board we are certain that we will be able to capitalize on the momentum within the market to exponentially grow sales. He is a great addition to our leadership team.”

As the new IT infrastructure perimeter, Corero’s First Line of Defense solutions provides unprecedented visibility while stopping DDoS, zero-day, advanced targeted server attacks and other unwanted traffic before it hits an organizations infrastructure.
