To transform the way businesses deploy and operate their distributed networks
Pareto Networks, a provider of cloud-based networking, has appointed Daniel Ryan as CEO.
Before joining Pareto Netwoks, Ryan was executive vice president and general manager of McAfee’s (MFE) network security business unit.
He was responsible for the worldwide growth of the $500m network and content security segments and oversaw the introduction and integration of various security products in McAfee.
He joined McAfee in 2008, when the company acquired Secure Computing (SCUR) for $465m.
Prior to joining McAfee, Ryan was Secure Computing’s president, CEO and director, and was responsible for the $250m enterprise network and gateway security offerings.
He was also instrumental in two acquisitions and a substantial divestiture.
Before joining Secure Computing, Ryan was senior vice president of enterprise content management products at Oracle after their acquisition of Stellent in 2006 for $440m, where he served as president and CEO.
Ryan joined Stellant from Foglight Software, a venture-funded startup and an early innovator in e-commerce and multi-tier application performance management, which was acquired by Quest Software.
The company said that under his leadership it plans to transform the way businesses deploy and operate their distributed networks, leveraging the economies of the cloud to accelerate and simplify network deployments and ongoing operations.
Ryan said that he was drawn to Pareto’s unique position to drive complexity and large capital investments out of the network and accelerate an enterprise’s ability to securely scale their distributed network.
