Waltham, MA - December 17, 2015 - CloudLock, the leading provider of Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) and Cybersecurity-as-a-Service solutions, today announced that the company is expanding its executive leadership team with the addition of John Amaral as head of product delivery. Amaral will be responsible for leading the company’s product, engineering, and operations teams. Amaral has more than 20 years of experience as a technologist and product development leader in information security and networking.
“Given my background in the security industry, I have witnessed and experienced first-hand the accelerated shift to the cloud and the drastic impact it’s had on the security posture of organizations,” said Amaral. “The opportunity to join an innovative and rapidly growing company was very compelling. I look forward to working with the amazing team CloudLock has built and expanding the CloudLock solution.”
Prior to joining CloudLock, Amaral served as the Senior Vice President of Product Management at Trustwave. John was a key contributor to Trustwave’s rapid growth and market leadership culminating in Singtel’s acquisition of Trustwave in 2015. During his tenure at Trustwave, he served in both business and technical management roles where he guided the vision, direction and development of Trustwave’s security, compliance and services product lines. He joined the company through the acquisition of data loss prevention leader Vericept in 2009 where he was Chief Technology Officer and Vice President of Research and Development. Before Vericept, he was Chief Technology Officer at NEI, now known as UNICOM Engineering. John also served in executive roles at Artel Video Systems and ITS Corporation, a developer of broadband networking equipment and technology, which was acquired by Artel Video Systems.
“John brings a tremendous amount of world class security experience and expertise to the team,” said Gil Zimmermann, CEO and co-founder of CloudLock. “As the first cloud-native CASB provider, we’ve always prided ourselves in being at the forefront of security innovation. John’s addition will help to ensure that we continue to outpace the competition for the most hyper-scalable and people-centric cybersecurity platform in the industry.”
