Cybersecurity Leader Rhonda MacLean Joins RedSeal Systems Board Of Directors

MacLean has led the IT security organizations at Barclays PLC and Bank of America

SAN MATEO, Calif., Dec. 13, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- RedSeal Systems, Inc., the leading provider of security posture management solutions, today announced that well-known security visionary and executive Rhonda MacLean has joined its Board of Directors. MacLean, a 30-year information technology executive, has led the IT security organizations at Barclays PLC and Bank of America and has served as a top advisor to the Secretary of Treasury on the subject of IT security in the financial services industry.

"Enterprises are spending billions of dollars on security products each year, yet data breaches are still disturbingly common. The fundamental challenge facing security executives today is how to ensure that these massive investments actually pay off," said MacLean. "I am joining RedSeal because I believe they have the industry's most compelling solution to this challenge. RedSeal's innovative technology enables CISOs like myself to continuously monitor their complex, expensive security infrastructures, understand where weaknesses exist, and rapidly remediate issues to protect their organization's critical assets and information."

Previously, MacLean served as the Global Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) at Barclays PLC, Global Retail and Commercial Bank, and also led Bank of America's Corporate Global Information Security Group. In both positions, MacLean was responsible for security policies and procedures, information risk management, security technology implementations, cyber investigations and general information security awareness for each company's leadership, associate base, and outside suppliers. Under her leadership, Bank of America was a founding member of the Financial Services Information Security Analysis Center (FS/ISAC). Prior to joining Bank of America, she spent 15 years in various information technology leadership roles at The Boeing Aerospace Company, based in Seattle, Washington.

In 2002, the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury appointed MacLean to serve as the sector coordinator and chairperson of the Financial Services Sector Coordinating Council for Critical Infrastructure Protection and Homeland Security. In that role, she brought together 26 financial services trade associations, utilities and professional institutes and worked with Treasury's private sector liaison to ensure the resiliency and security of the nation's financial services networks.

"Rhonda MacLean is one of the premier leaders in IT security today," said Tom Arthur, President and CEO of RedSeal. "Her recognition of RedSeal's critical value to the market, combined with her firsthand knowledge of a Fortune 500 CISO's daily challenges, will help RedSeal continue to be one of the fastest growing IT security providers in the world."

About RedSeal Systems, Inc.

RedSeal Systems develops security posture management software that enables organizations to assess and strengthen their cyber-defenses.

RedSeal software analyzes and simplifies the complex interaction of firewalls, routers, load balancers and hosts, delivering in-depth understanding of overall security posture, continuous compliance with regulations such as PCI, FISMA, and SOX, and actionable steps for risk remediation.
