NEW YORK -- Application Security, Inc. (AppSecInc) (www.appsecinc.com), the leading global provider of database security solutions, today announced in conjunction with the RSA Conference 2007, taking place this week in San Francisco, the appointment of Toby Weiss as president and CEO. Jack Hembrough has been elevated to the position of Chairman of the Board after a successful leadership run of more than four years. Founded in 2001, AppSecInc has benefited from strong demand for security solutions that enable enterprise customers to extend security best practices directly to the database.
A combination of mounting regulatory pressures, increasingly focused and professional cybercrime, and technology advancements have driven robust demand for data security over the last year, Weiss said. With enterprise information assets increasingly under attack in 2006 and 2007, demand for database security has never been stronger. Based on this demand and under Jacks leadership, AppSecInc has made remarkable accomplishments from customer wins to revenue growth to market leadership. Im looking forward to working with Jack and the rest of the team to bring AppSecInc to the next level.
