Veracode Expands Senior Management Team
Veracode Inc., provider of an independent, cloud-based application risk management platform, has expanded its senior management team with the appointments of Pam Cyr as the company’s senior vice president of business development and strategic alliances, and Jim Cuff as senior vice president of technology and operations. Cyr and Cuff each bring more than 20 years of experience in the software industry to their new roles and will be responsible for continuing to raise awareness of the business risks associated with insecure software, as well as developing new solutions and go-to-market strategies to help more organizations protect their core software infrastructure.
“Pam and Jim are tremendous additions to the Veracode team as we execute against our strategic vision to provide our customers with a simple and cost-effective means of securing their software infrastructure,” said Maria Cirino, chairperson, Veracode Board of Directors, and managing director, .406 Ventures. “These two new hires immediately bolster an executive leadership team at Veracode who are laser-focused on eliminating organizations’ insecure software risks and extending Veracode’s leadership in cloud-based application security assessments.”
Cyr brings business, corporate, security software and product development expertise to Veracode where she will be responsible for all elements of Veracode’s partnering strategy, ecosystem development, programs and execution. She previously served as vice president of business development for Aveksa. Prior to that, she spent 10 years with RSA, the security division of EMC, after beginning her career at Raytheon Co. where she held various engineering leadership positions in the communications and radar systems divisions.
“Having been involved in building, defining and selling security solutions my entire career, joining Veracode represented an exciting new opportunity for me,” said Cyr. “Veracode provides an advanced solution to one of the greatest security risks in the cyber threat landscape today—insecure software – and is poised for tremendous growth. I’m looking forward to helping bolster the company’s visibility within the channel and further expanding important partnerships to take advantage of new demand, especially in the realm of mobile app security.”
Previously with Iron Mountain, Cuff brings corporate development and engineering experience to Veracode where he will be responsible for engineering, research and development, as well as advancing corporate development activities. At Iron Mountain, Cuff served in various capacities including the role of senior vice president of enterprise architecture. Prior to Iron Mountain, Cuff worked in IT in the financial services industry, including MFS Investment Management and Massachusetts Housing Finance Agency, with responsibility for networks, open systems and desktop computing.
“I am thrilled to join an innovative company like Veracode—especially at this stage when it has only scratched of its growth potential,” said Cuff. “Veracode is unrivaled when it comes to providing reliable, accurate application security verification services, and I look forward to working with this pioneering company to extend its market leadership.”
