Leading Cloud Security Solutions Provider Armor Continues Growth Trajectory and Hires New Chief Executive Officer

Armor, a leading cloud security solutions provider, announced today that Mark Woodward, 40-year veteran of the information technology industry, has joined Armor's leadership team as Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Armor Founder and former CEO Chris Drake is stepping into the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) role as product strategist and evangelist and will continue as a member of the Board.

"Armor is in a unique position to be the ‘definitive leader' of cloud security, and I am very excited that Mark is joining Armor to help realize that vision," said Drake. "Armor is growing quickly and in a strong financial position, and it is time to double-down," continued Drake. "I am confident that adding Mark to the team will enable Armor to reach new heights."

According to Drake this move will also allow him to focus more attention on several parts of the business which he is very passionate about, including developing key strategic partnerships, creating large business opportunities, and advancing Armor's long-term product vision.

Woodward, a three-time CEO, has extensive experience in successfully growing software companies. He served as President and CEO for E2open, a cloud-based, supply chain management company, which he took public in 2013 and sold to Insight Venture Partners in 2015. Woodward was also the longtime President and CEO of Serena Software, an infrastructure software company, which he helped take public in 1999. He then oversaw its sale to Silver Lake for $1.2 billion. Woodward has worked as Chairman and CEO of Invoca, a marketing automation technology company, in addition to holding executive roles at McAfee and Legent.

"I am truly honored to be joining Armor," said Woodward. "Under Chris' exceptional vision and leadership, Armor has grown to become one of the most respected cloud security solutions providers in the industry. Working together, I know that we can accelerate the company's growth and further extend our markets, all while ensuring that our customers' critical data is safe."
