Former Palo Alto Networks Executive joins DB Networks Board -- IT Security Industry Veteran Larry Link Brings Unique Understanding of the Next-Generation Security Challenges Facing Today’s Enterprises
 



SAN DIEGO, April 8, 2014 -- DB Networks, an innovator of behavioral analysis in database security, today announced that it has named Larry Link, former Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales for Palo Alto Networks, to its Board of Directors. In this new role, Mr. Link will provide insight and counsel based on his deep domain experience as the company expands its market for its behavioral analysis based IT security products.

Larry Link brings 25 years of experience as a Senior Operating Executive with an extensive experience in the enterprise market to his role on the Board of Directors at DB Networks. Mr. Link also is on the Board of Directors at Mojave Networks and NetCitadel, and is an investor and advisor to several startups targeting the enterprise market. Mr. Link’s security industry experience includes serving as Senior VP of Worldwide Sales for Palo Alto Networks, growing the company from its first sale in 2007 to IPO in July 2012 at a run rate in excess of $400M per year.

“Larry is a strategic addition to the DB Networks board,” said Brett Helm, Chairman and CEO of DB Networks. “He brings a unique mix of executive leadership, security industry savviness and entrepreneurial experience, which collectively makes him an excellent addition to the DB Networks board.”

“The IT security industry is rapidly moving away from traditional signature based black list / white list technologies toward highly intelligent products that are instead based on behavioral analysis,” said Mr. Link. “I am very excited about this opportunity to work very closely with the DB Networks’ board and executive team as the company rapidly expands.”

Mr. Link’s operating experience spans three decades and includes leadership roles at four successful startups. Most recently he was SVP of Worldwide Sales for Palo Alto Networks. Prior to Palo Alto Networks, Larry was SVP of Sales for Silver Peak Systems. He ran Worldwide Sales at Neoteris from inception through its acquisition by Juniper Networks in April 2004. Prior to Neoteris he was Vice President of Enterprise Sales for Excite@Home (Nasdaq: ATHM) from its launch in 1996, through IPO in 1997, and its subsequent merger with Excite in 1999. He earned a BS degree in Industrial Engineering from Purdue University.
