Security Scoreboard Appoints New CEO

Dominique Levin served as CMO and acting CEO at LogLogic

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA (PRWEB) January 19, 2011

Security Scoreboard, which offers security product ratings and analytics based on real-world user experiences, announced the appointment of Dominique Levin as CEO.

Levin comes to Security Scoreboard from LogLogic Inc., a leader in security and log management solutions, where she served as Chief Marketing Officer and Acting CEO. She was also previously VP Marketing at PoliVec, held positions at Nippon Telegraph and Telephone and Philips Consumer Electronics and generated over $630 million in shareholder value as a venture capital investor.

“There is a real pent-up demand for transparency in the security industry ”, said Levin. “This is why many practitioners are already contributing to Security Scoreboard”.

"Crowd-sourcing could significantly improve the validity and quality of the information available about commercial IT products”, said Dana Gardner, president and principal analyst at Interarbor Solutions. “As a consumer I can look at Angie's List, Rotten Tomatoes or TripAdvisor and it's crazy such thing doesn't exist for IT."

“Even if you have the time and money to test different solutions, it's always the details of real-life implementations that come to bite you”, said Chris Sawall, Supervisor of Information Security at Ameren Corporation, a Fortune 500 company and one of the nation's largest investor-owned electric and gas utilities. “You never know how technologies and solutions will really work until you have invested in them. Security Scoreboard allows me to be better informed."

At the time of the appointment, the company also received an angel investment and moved its headquarters to Silicon Valley.

“Security Scoreboard recently introduced new analytics capabilities, which highlight top vendors by user ratings and present trends on site visits”, said Dr. Boaz Gelbord, President and co-founder of Security Scoreboard and himself a practicing security executive. “We are looking to add more sophisticated analysis leveraging user generated data.

The move to Silicon Valley and the recent funding will allow us to tap into engineering talent to accelerate our roadmap”.

"The new analytics move Security Scoreboard in the direction from merely showing you what your peers are thinking to making true crowd-based recommendations about which vendor tools to use", said Jay Leek, Vice President of International Security at Equifax.

The company plans to raise additional venture funding later this year.
