Q1 Labs Promotes Brendan Hannigan to Chief Executive Officer

Q1 Labs, a global provider of total security intelligence solutions, has appointed Brendan Hannigan as its chief executive officer.

Hannigan brings more than 24 years of industry experience to his role as chief executive officer. Previously as president and chief operating officer of Q1 Labs, Hannigan was responsible for the company's overall day-to-day operations. Hannigan joined Q1 Labs in November 2003 as vice president of marketing, and was promoted to executive vice president of marketing and product engineering in March 2004. He was later named COO in April 2006, and became president and COO in December 2007.

“I am excited and honored to lead such a successful company,” Hannigan said. “In my eight years with Q1 Labs, the business has grown consistently and at a rapid rate. The IT security market has seen significant change over the past 12-18 months, and Q1 Labs has helped drive that shift from IT security point solutions to a more comprehensive approach which we call security intelligence.”

Hannigan is a technology industry veteran with 24 years of industry experience. Before joining Q1 Labs, he served in a variety of senior marketing and product development roles at Sockeye Networks, Forrester Research, Wellfleet Communications, Digital Equipment Corp. and Motorola. Hannigan graduated with honors in computer science from University College, Dublin, Ireland.

Shaun McConnon, the company’s previous CEO, becomes the executive chairman of the board, and remains actively engaged in the strategic activities and direction of the company.

“Brendan’s career at Q1 Labs has been nothing less than stellar. He has spent the past eight years dedicated to growing Q1 Labs into the largest independent SIEM vendor,” said McConnon, now executive chairman of the board for Q1 Labs. “Brendan’s clear dedication to the company and its efforts makes him the perfect candidate to lead Q1 Labs as we anticipate our IPO.”
