Tablus completes series B round of funding and appoints a new CFO

SAN MATEO, Calif. -- Tablus Inc., a leading provider of content protection solutions, today announced the completion of the company’s Series “B” round of funding from Trident Capital and Menlo Ventures. This announcement comes on the heels of the most successful financial year in the company’s history and reinforces the importance of content monitoring and filtering technology as part of a complete enterprise security posture.

“Tablus was among the first to recognize that comprehensive enterprise security is not about safeguarding the desktop or the network – it is about protecting the content,” said Anne Bonaparte, president and CEO of Tablus. “Our legacy of technological innovation has been built on a solid foundation of product successes in the information access and content categorization space. This intense focus on the data itself differentiates our product line and allows our enterprise customers to scan vast amounts of information with unmatched accuracy.”

In a separate release:

SAN MATEO, Calif. -- Tablus Inc., a leading provider of content protection solutions, today announced the expansion of its senior management team with the appointment of Tony Russo to the position of chief financial officer. Bringing more than 16 years of strategic financial and operational expertise to Tablus, Russo will oversee all financial activities for the company. He will report to Anne Bonaparte, president and chief executive officer of Tablus.

“Tony is a proven financial strategist with extensive fiscal management experience,” said Bonaparte. “His strong understanding of institutional process and financial controls will be critical in both achieving Tablus’ current financial goals and preparing for future growth.”

Russo most recently served as the chief financial officer for MailFrontier, a provider of email security solutions. Prior to his tenure with MailFrontier, Russo served as CFO and vice president of operations at Bravanta, Inc., now part of Workstream, Inc., where he was instrumental in developing and advancing the company’s business performance.
