SignaCert Names Jeffrey McMahon as Senior Vice President of Products
20-year veteran brings a strong background in Agile development and leadership at leading software companies like Netscape and SunSoft
AUSTIN, TX — July 02, 2014 — SignaCert, the company that is revolutionizing IT operations and security with the “Power of Being Correct”™, today announced the addition of Jeffrey McMahon as senior vice president of products. McMahon brings a proven track record of enterprise software and company development, most recently as the vice president of products at Open Labs.
McMahon began his career in Silicon Valley, where he held strategy, business development and executive roles at SunSoft (Sun Microsystems, acquired by Oracle), Netscape (AOL), AllBusiness and Kenamea (Scivantage). In Austin, McMahon was the chief executive officer at Digilife before leading products at Open Labs. At Open Labs, McMahon successfully lead the company’s transition to Agile software development while launching a brand new product—a product that had users in 120+ countries within 18 months of launch. He is applying the same leadership and product development strategies at SignaCert.
“SignaCert’s whitelist-driven solutions are designed to increase security, lower operating expenses and move organizations into a position of continuous compliance,” said Toney Jennings, chief executive officer for SignaCert. “As the company accelerates into a hyper-growth phase, SignaCert and its customers will benefit from Jeff’s ability to solve complex problems and create solutions that are easy to use and extremely reliable.”
IT complexity, scale, and rate of change make it extremely difficult to understand the true state of IT infrastructure at any point in time. Powered by patented technology such as the Global Trust Repository (GTR), a file and application whitelist database of unprecedented breadth and depth, SignaCert Integrity continuously compares IT elements against authenticated applications, gold images, and trusted standards. This ongoing appraisal allows for early surgical identification of issues that threaten infrastructure integrity (availability, security, compliance) and reduces the amount of unplanned work typically caused by delayed problem discovery.
