RSA's Coviello To Retire Due To Health Reasons

Amit Yoran to assume RSA executive's duties.

The longtime head of RSA will step down and retire later this month due to unspecified health reasons. 

Art Coviello, executive chairman of RSA and executive vice president of EMC, who served as CEO of RSA Security before it was acquired by EMC in 2006, will retire as of Feb. 28, according to the company. Amit Yoran, RSA president, will take over Coviello's duties, as well as maintain his current position at RSA, The Security Division of EMC.

In a statement, Coviello said the time is right for him to step down in order "to focus on addressing health concerns that have recently emerged and to be with my family."

"I look back on my time at RSA and EMC with fond memories and can't help but feel extremely fortunate to have worked with some of the finest minds in the industry over the past 20 years. As I retire, I do so with the confidence that RSA is well positioned for even greater success in the future and in good hands with Amit Yoran as president," Coviello said.

Coviello first joined RSA in 1995, and has been credited helping drive the company's rapid growth from a $25 million firm then to more than $1 billion in 2014.

"Over the last two decades Art has made a vast and positive imprint on RSA and the security industry. His leadership and friendship will remain with us for many years to come," said Joe Tucci, chairman and CEO of EMC. "We're grateful for Art's contributions and consider ourselves privileged to remain close as he shifts his energies more toward his family and personal health."
